The Half Ass Expeditions Guide to Winter Hiking Equipment

     One of the best things about hiking is all the cool stuff you get to play with. The coolest thing about this stuff is you get to carry it into the woods on your back. Needless to say, you won't be packing in your two pound Leatherman or that two burner Coleman camp stove. You're looking for the lightest and the best to maximize the wilderness experience. From the latest in LED photon technology to the pure survival power of the Sven Saw, HAE loves to ratchet-jaw about GEAR..!
