Can't forget my $15,000 tent I got from the Great Camillo on K2. It weighs negative 12 oz. and sets itself up while I melt snow. Ahhh, the memories of the Great Camillo! :lol:

Holubar Down Sleeping Bag w/ removable liner
I'll bet most have never heard of Holubar, based in Republic of Boulder, went out of business in the eighties. I got my SB in the early 70's, still going strong. Remove and wash the liner frequently, like a new bag.

Frostline Down Sweater
Don't remember when I sewed this from a kit, had to be 20-years ago. When the sun goes down, on it goes. Has snaps instead of a zipper, makes it more stuffable.

Goretex sucks, rigid like a board, did keep me dry though. Now use micro-porous PU rain gear . . . much lighter.

You owe me a keyboard. Snurfed coffee all over it!

Sorry about the keyboard. I'll have my best buddy Camillo send you the new $8,000 model that embellishes your climbing accomplishments for you.

The North Face VE-25 tent. This thing has been around for ages. I know a few people who even have older versions than mine!

As far as stoves go, can't we just say MSR in general? I have the Dragonfly and am completely in love with it - especially after owning a Primus, which I highly discourage the purchase of.

I have to give a shout out for the JetBoil stove. I have eight days of two-person camping and we are still on the first tiny can of fuel.

Also, I have to give a vote for the SteriPen. Safe water in 30 seconds.

Holubar had a store on 6th Avenue near Kipling. A buddy and I bought our first tent there.
