OT: @Rusty, if you use Google Chrome as your browser it will automatically ask you if it should translate the page for you to English. Very useful!Feb 7, 2013 at 3:03 am #1951687
Thanks David, I'm honoured and I chuckled too!
There were a few omissions – cottages which didn't get back to me, or which I simply forgot to contact. I updated my article now already to include some more news from Warbonnet & Flyweight Designs, and try to reach out once more to the missing ones. If I make further updates or in case there'd be a new article I will let everyone know in this thread or via a mention in The Week In Review.Feb 6, 2013 at 12:31 am #1951269Feb 5, 2013 at 11:14 pm #1951260

A shame you lost your camera, Brad! The photos look muy bueno! Hablas Español, or can one survive with English (Spanglish)?Dec 14, 2012 at 3:49 am #1935384

Here's my take on the Madshus Glittertind MGV+ Skis as well as a lot of photos of it.Nov 18, 2012 at 9:52 am #1929383
I'm working on them =)Nov 14, 2012 at 2:01 am #1928222
The Solo Stove is a Rip-Off Made in China.
The Bushbuddy is Made in Canada by Fritz Handel.
Fritz has an apprentice, Jeff, who manufacturers the BushBuddy in the USA under the Nomadic Stove Company Brand.
Support cottages, and leave negative feedback about the Solo Stove wherever you can. It's a bad rip-off of a high quality, hand made product, and hurts the business of Fritz and Jeff.Nov 2, 2012 at 3:26 am #1925977
Superb video and article, Ryan.
It's good that you promote these 24 trips, as for many of us that are the only possible trips at the moment =) I'm looking at 24 possibilities myself right now because of this one!May 12, 2012 at 12:53 pm #1877000
Thanks Dan & Harald!

We pay similar prices for US goods, so it goes both ways. Though with the current strong Euro it is of course a tad more in our favour. I can assure you that it is worth it, too!Apr 6, 2012 at 3:24 am #1864284Apr 4, 2012 at 5:17 am #1863416

Ken, Deutsch ist sehr einfach!
Last info I have is mid March. They're busy with filling the storage so that there's no waiting times for packs, shelters and gear.
The pack can get fairly small. Check some of the photos above to see it!Jan 31, 2012 at 11:52 pm #1832617
Christian, you might be right about that ;).
In March there's going to be a small one-week winter tour here, where so far at least one, possibly two Laavus will be present. I'll try to make a video and tempt you guys a tad more then =)Jan 31, 2012 at 7:36 am #1832149
LAUFBURSCHE just announced that they plan to open their long-expected webshop by the end of February!
Exciting! That should mean it should soon be very easy to order a huckePACK or huckePÄCKchen (or a Cuben Laavu, or a Tanzpalast… =)Jan 19, 2012 at 5:25 am #1826586
I just wanted to all inform you about the cottage I just started.
The name of my cottage is McShale (Shale as in soft, finely stratified sedimentary rock that formed from consolidated mud or clay and can be split easily into fragile slabs) and it will make very durable, ultralight and unique alpine packs. I think the name represents that very well. Possible similarities with other names I dismiss.
The foundation of my basic pack design I will <s>rip off</s> <s>copy</s> imitate from some French Canadian dude, who started some environmental friendly clothing company, from the 70s (no one will know, an he makes no more packs anyway), I will just enhance and update it with a few unique details like
– Daisy Chains (the Army would calls it a MOLLE System, but I'm not the Army and my lost love's name was Daisy)
– Strong and durable materials (other packs are made of the same, but I will just claim that my fabrics are superior – If I claim that just loud and often enough some will believe it)
– Fancy colours (Think Rainbow colours, and yeah, I will mix and mis-match)
– Ridiculously expensive (I don't want to sew too many pack per week as that would limit the time I can hang out online on forums and troll around)
– Hand made to order (You don't think I would want to be away from my PC and the forums, do you? Also, somehow I need to explain those absurd prices)
To make it difficult to buy from me I am going to have a hideous website which has never heard about User Experience – it will be a utter pain to navigate and find what you're looking for. Don't bother looking at it on your smart phone or tablet, Mobile First or Responsive Web Design, I could care less.
I also plan to spend a lot of time online, insulting other companies' products, call reviewers biased and whatnot, and make myself like the most unpleasant person to do business with (customer service, forget it amigo). That is OK, because some still will buy my absurdly expensive packs, and as I rather be online than really thinking about developing something innovative (let alone be outdoors testing my packs) this makes it a win-win situation.
My first pack will be called "The Moaner™" and will be a simplistic design, though its unique feature will be a slight moaning with every item you place into the pack, and a louder moaning when carried on your back. It will be highly annoying, just like me behaviour online.
I plan to introduce further down the line another pack called "The Whiner™", and I will make sure to <s>spam</s> inform you about it on reviews of other packs. I'm <s>not</s> looking forward to do business with you, and meet you online!Jan 11, 2012 at 5:05 am #1823083
Congratulations Chris! Looking forward to see how things unfold.
Living Reviews, you say? Sounds familiar ;)Jan 3, 2012 at 1:51 pm #1819271
Thanks Ryan. That was one interesting read, and I am looking forward to the 24 Episode and the next parts of this "living review" =)
One question: How loud is the shutter on the NEX-7? On the NEX-5N I find it rather loud, and I wonder if it is similar on the NEX-7.Jan 3, 2012 at 1:19 pm #1819251
Douglas, it has to do with the BPL Review policy. The article goes through a review panel, were folks will point out stuff. If the author goes for a Highly Recommended, the Head Gear Editor pretty much needs to have the item as well and needs to concur with the author. If that's not the case there will only be a Recommended. At least that's my experience.
There's somewhere more info on that, but start looking here.Dec 28, 2011 at 2:47 am #1816557
Congratulations to you and your husband, Addie!
