    The Luminaid looks interesting…your link brings me to a $49.95 version; there are two other versions, one for $19.95 and one for $24.95 that you can find.

    If you can read in a tent by this light, I might get one too. Less than 3 ounces!

    Thanks for the Great Gadget review! Love these overlooked products, keep them coming.
    I own a LuminAid and can say I am able to read using the light when it is full powered. I have very blurry eyesight in between day and night, or when I use a flashlight in the pitch black, but the soft lighting is great and doesn't strain my eyes. no experience on pillow usage because I don't use a pillow ever but the one thing I would like to add is that I haven't found a solid way to strap the Luminaid to the top of my bag without wobbling around, still love it and how it prevents friends from shining headlamps into my eyes while settling down in the tarp.

    I also am an advent dehydrator and used to work for a company that dehydrated kimchi in excaliburs, they work great and are inexpensive, but if you want to sleep better at night knowing you aren't filling all the air in your kitchen with plastic off-gas, go with the TSM Stainless steel Dehydrator.

    $450 is a bit pricey, but is well worth it. TSM has a timer, and is pure stainless steel, no plastic borders.

    I was just at REI in Berkeley; they have a solar powered lantern like the Luminaid but made by a company called Survival Frog…I think. Anyway, it weighs four ounces and costs $20.00 for the cheapest version. 12 hours of light on a charge. Can't find this on the rei site, however.

    My wife and I have been using the Excalibur for years to dry fruit, veggies, stews, chili, soups, you name it for backpacking. Started when the kids were young, picky eaters and we had little spare money for pre-packaged dehydrated foods. Works great, very reliable, and you can't beat the range of foods you can generate. Quite a quality piece of equipment.

    @Eric Brewer — Would you mind sharing your dehydrator recipes for backpacking?
    @ Ryan — Your salmon recipe please!
    Thank you in advance.
