I like the vote of confidence however others do high quality work on ZS too. Some of Biffs reviews come to mind. I would hate for others to think that their posts are not appreciated too. Also a large number of stickied threads tend to force other posts to the back pages. I will hyper link this thread under my sig line as Seanwins was kind enough to explain.


Edit.

He did explain right but I screwed it up. Sig line updated.

Wow, just found this.

I love the hatchet review, just as I was in the market for a decent one.

The RailRoad adventure was entertaining as well.

I demand more reviews...! :P

Oh wow, Woods, did the stove in your mini-BoB ever go into production. I drool looking at it.

Yes. The owners of Ti-goat sent me the stove to test. I like the Ti-goat guys and think they make good stuff. They didn't take all my advice however. I think the 3-inch stove port that I tested is better than the 2 3/8 pipe they pack with it. Better draft. Here is my review of the stove.

http://zombiehunters.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=27683" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I believe the box type stoves are better. The Kifaru small stove rocks however I can fit the roll up stove in my smaller daypacks. This with a larger tarps would allow me to have some heat and still stay out of the rain/snow without building an bush shelter or risk burning the expensive sil tarp or just use my Golite poncho. Also I have been looking at a sil cape that turns into a mini tipi type shelter with door etc. I have an extra Ti-goat stove jack and think it could be added to the cape for a sub 3lb heated shelter/raingear combo that would be 100% water proof (tipi shelter) and could be heated in temps down to far far below zero. Just something I am considering for late winter dayhikes or to cut down on a few lbs off the 72-hour BOB. Not that my Paratipi is all that much bulk.

I just made the mother of all updates to this thread. I figured it was time as it has been over a year. It seems that Woodsy went through a light fetish phase, so I gave lights their own section. :lol:

The H501 and H501w review will be out after I do the Oasis canteen review and my summer daypack workover review.

I'm bringing this back to the top. Because I knew WW was a great writer. But I did not know the shear volume of his contributions here.

Read thru his many reviews and contributions. It's well worth it. Some very interesting stuff.
