    A humorous article and the accompanying video done by our local paper highlights the authors Svea stove http://www.statesmanjournal.com/story/opinion/columnists/miller/2014/08/28/get-close-backpack-stove/14681049/ I can relate to the blow torch analogy- i've been using the same Peak 1 stove for...

    So I have a survival bag for camping, 4x4'ing, fishing, hiking, exploring, natural disaster, etc. and I really think it needs a revamp. I have actually lost a few things too or had things removed or even stolen. I'm approaching this in groups to make it easier and I'm doing the water group now...

    Just bought a Hiker PRO.($75) I think I like it, got a seperate carbon cartridge also( free from friend). But everybody I talk to says the MSR is better, they look kind a brittle to me, maybe it's the transparency of them. So whats the best out there for $200 ? I could use this one for a...

    Like the topic says. Looking for something for both camp use and porch use if the power is out for long periods. Maybe even indoor use if there's a winter power outage. Thanks!

    I'm want buying a water filter for camping/wilderness hikes. So that I can keep the weight down in my pack, I'm not to concerned about space, just the weight. I don't always want to start a small fire or setup a stove to boil the water. I really don't like using chemicals for purifying water...

    I just picked up a pocket rocket and a few cans of fuel at Bass Pro Shops last weekend. I cant believe how well such a tiny little thing puts off so much heat! It's crazy. I'm new to all this survival/camping/outdoors gear stuff though (aside from firearms). So I may be too easily impressed...

    I found an MSR XPD cookware set for $50, and this weekend it will be at least another 10% off, so it will be $45 or cheaper. I can't find it online, maybe it has been discontinued. It has two stainless pots, one lid that apparently fits both, one pot grabber handle thingy, AND, it has the XPD...

    Kinda surprised I never hear of this thing being discussed. With its multi-fuel capabilities, seems like you would almost never run out of fuel, since it will even run on kerosene and even gasoline. Seems like that's much more flexible than always having to have alcohol or "white" camp fuel on...
  12. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I'm currently in the market for my first water filter. I'm looking for something to keep in my B.O.B. and have to admit I don't really know what to look for. I've been hunting and fishing all my life and have read many books and built a few shelters but I'm just now beginning to purchase...

    I've been googling all the water filters on the web and had a hard time deciding which one is best. I ended up getting two of them! One is a gravity fed filter that filters out most of the usual stuff, giardia et al, and has a 1500 liter capacity on one filter. It doesn't involve pumping, but...
  14. Reviews & Questions For Vendors
    I'm talking about mini backpacking camp stoves (IE: Coleman, MSR, Jetboil) Are the $100+ stoves like MSR really any better or any more worth it than the $30-$40 Coleman ones? I've been searching for a camp stove for quite a while now, but I can never decide whether or not the more expensive...

    Ok, a camping nut friend of mine has sold me that I need a water filter for BoB. I have several canteens, aqua tabs, etc. But friend says a good water filter (pump style) can provide a years worth of water. Now thats a heckuva argument! So It looks like there are about a hundred different brands...
