    Quick question re: Tops/Buck CSAR-T folder

    I'd like to remove this pocket clip, but for the life of me cannot figure out what size/type of bit/wrench I'll need to extract the three tiny screws - they look like Torx screws, but my tool set from my Jeeping days doesn't have a wrench that small. Any help IDing the exact size I'll need is...

    Hey, can you shoot me a PM with more specs on the Kona Cinder Cone bike, the model year, frame size, some pictures, etc? I'm interested, but it's hard finding a bike that "fits" since I have the physical build of a Tolkien dwarf (long torso, short legs).

    Traditional Archers of CA. Rancho Neblina shoot 2011..

    I'm interested in the specs of the various bows you and your crew used, Mike. Interested - and jealous. Many MANY years ago my uncle gave me his old Shakespeare recurve (yes, the same company that makes the Ugly Stik fishing rods) and I had a blast with that thing for years until I gave it...

    Mystery Ranch SATL pack VS Kifaru Ultralight 3700?

    Yeah - Dana Gleason, the founder, had to wait until his "non-compete clause" expired after K2 purchased Dana Designs (and then was later itself bought by Marmot, I think) - and then he started Mystery Ranch, out of Bozeman, MT.

    That Cleveland address is listed as an apartment complex called Brookside Way - was the guy using it as the address of his alleged gun-shop?

    Hiking Pack Recommendation

    Check into the Camelbak TriZip - it's got the Camelbak durability with a Mystery Ranch Futura Harness suspension, but at a much, much lower price than a MR pack. That Futura Harness might be the most comfortable and adjustable I've ever worn. This will be my pack for a 4-day, 50 mile loop...

    Mystery Ranch SATL pack VS Kifaru Ultralight 3700?

    Can't speak for Kifaru, but I'm a HUGE fan of Mystery Ranch, all the way back to when they were Dana Designs. Their packs were bombproof even then - I can only salivate at the changes/improvements they've made since. I was on FaceBook for quite some time today talking "live" with one of their...

    Looking for a good/tough pack...

    Without knowing exactly what you need (price range, tactical or civilian, how large/heavy your usual loads, etc) I have no idea if this would interest you, but I have a Dana Designs (the ancestor of Mystery Ranch) Loadmaster Longbed I'm selling on some backpacking forums. It's argueably the...

    Tops/Buck CSAR-T: Need an overall Opinion from an owner!

    Recently bought one off another forum for $75 and the thing is built like a tank. I really like the sheath, too. For that price I love it - but I wouldn't have paid very much more for it, as there are too many just-as-good options out there. This will be my backpacking belt-knife, with my...
