ExpressLander and primary parts

ExpressLander and primary parts

The ExpressLander was provided was provided by Primus for review purposes.

The ExpressLander runs on white gas.  The stove is made mostly of metal and appears very durable.  It claims to still be one of the lightest white gas stoves on the market.  The package contains a stove, heat reflector, fuel pump, multi tool, and a nylon bag.  I did not find the multi tool in my box.  Inquiries were made and I received the tool a few days later.  I was also provided with a fuel tank with a capacity of 1 L.

first hike with Baja shoes at Great Brook Farm

 I have been using the Baja Baffin shoes daily and all day since I have received them.  I have been on several hikes with my backpack loaded to simulate   backpacking conditions.  I found that on these hikes I did not feel uncomfortable due to my being able to feel the rocks through the soles of the shoe.  These hikes were typical of most conditions I would find backpacking.
