Camping Gear: DIY fire starter / Ultralight Packlist / Down Jackets

Here are a few neat little articles of interest to cyclists doing multi-day rides and backpackers.  These were gleaned from the recent Gossamer Gear newsletter (www.gossamergear.com)

Ultralight Packlist w/ Descriptions
by Mike Clelland
This was written for backpackers, but useful for cyclists. Simply ignore the stuff aimed at hikers and translate the rest over to the bike.

  1. These are very useful links. I've been looking for cheaper camping gears for quite some time now. I will surely check these things out. I am planning to go on camping next weekend, so I need to have different gears to survive. I wish you had put links for knives such as buck hoodlum, cold steel and Kershaw knife.
