ok, so I'm an ultralight geek when I feel like it, and have a Nalgene for general uses and abusive uses (like caving), but for significant hikes, climbs, or backpacking trips, gatorade bottles are the key - 1/3 the weight (when empty of course), 1/4 the price, and it comes FULL. They are also no big deal to throw away when they are too gross and if you happen to loose it, no big deal. So, get 1 nalgene if you dont have one, keep your stickers off of it, and get a bunch of gatorade 32 ozers.

great hexes. I love the curve design and the dyneema sling. I find that the biggest 4 are most useful (6-9) and I barely use 3 and 4, but my first trad whipper was a 15 footer onto the 5 and it held like a champ. I do wish they would make some super big drilled out ones!!

sweet nuts. simple to place because there are no curves and weird shapes, just line up the right size and stick it in! and the long cables are great fun and really work.

Super, multipurpose, light, solid, huge, economical, great small company to support. excellent packs for everything - backpacking, mountaineering, rock climbing, ice climbing, skiing. Cilogear cuts costs thru not advertizing in magazines, so these are really higher quality than the price shows!! Don't get suckered into the big name companies marketing plots... they are overweight, overpriced, overfeatured, and designed to make them money - Cilogear packs are designed to WORK and work well!!
