    This weeks new stuff :)

    So as always been busy with the gray matter trying to continue the ever expanding list of things I have to offer for you all to be able to get out and have new gear to play with on every trip you take. So this week I have some DIY items, some new choices in the suspension options, some new bear bag options, and things I will probably even forget to list.

    So up first today I am starting to carry small rolls of Gutermann thread for all the DIYers. This is the good stuff, 100% polly and about as good a price as I can offer it at. For now I am only stocking black but can and will special order just about any color you could ask for.


    Next up I have a few new choices in webbing this week, Just got in some Black Polyester, same specs as the camo Polyester that I have had for a while, but stronger than the polypro that has been the other black webbing available thus far. It is listed with the camo in the same spot as always and now you can pick which one from the drop down tab at the bottom of the description. Also on the webbing front I have some new polypro with a set of 3M reflective tracers inter woven so that you can spot your hammock straps at a hundred yards on that dark night.


    On the same theme I was also able to finally get some reflective draw cord in 3mm.


    I added some light and inexpensive bowls to slowly growing line up of cooking gear.
    The Trail bowl 1 or 2 cup capacity, with screw top lid and measuring lines.


    And Finally ---The new Feed Bags, a new ultralight option for bear bagging your food. Available in 3 sizes from solo to a small group. With fully taped seams, roll top closure and spliced throw line with integrated rock sack, and included bag hang line with micro carabiner. Designed to cut out any hardware but the micro carabiner, reducing the chance of failure of any components and knots that would need to be retied in the field.

    Mmmm shiney

    What's the load on that reflective tape Paul ?

    Is the draw cord static or stretchy ? Sorry but it's probably called something different over here

    Looks like a perfect time to order all those other bits I've always wanted too.

    The Webbing is rated to 600 pounds same as the other polypro webbing I stock. And the Draw cord is nylon so it will stretch some, but it makes great zipper pulls and goes very well with either of the new zipper pull tabs.

    I have a few more new Items for this week, and more coming in tomorrow as well. But figured I would post about what we have just updated for today.

    I have just added Dynaglide adjustable Structural Ridge-lines adjustment range from 90 inches to 120 inches. They weigh in at 9 grams.



    I have also made my bear bag throw line with spliced eye and spliced in line rock sack available on it's own so that any one putting together their own bear bag system can have the advantage of spliced throw lines.

    I also recently added glow and whistle zipper pulls. The Whistle is very loud for it's size.


    And I have finished the first couple KAQ 1S Lost River UQ's They weigh in at 11 oz in the stuff sack with full suspensions on them and pack to just slightly larger than our mid size bear pillow.
