The canopy can fit into a 3-mag pouch!

I think he actually dozed off

Both of us inside, with equipment
is an ultra lightweight shelter/basha made of silicone impregnated
paraglider fabric, to make it windproof and waterproof. It is not
a tent with a closed bottom, and is open at the front. Shown here
is the canopy and optional pole kit, which includes 14 Durapeg tent
stakes, and front and rear 'nesting' aluminum poles. The poles are
located in the hootch with hypalon 'locator wedges' (what I've labeled
as the 'hypaloon support pole point' in the picture below). The back
pole is adjustable from 0-26" and the front one from 12-42".
The canopy stores in its own sewn-on stuff sack, but it is even more
compressible and can scrunch down into an M4 3-mag pouch! The material
is incredibly light and has a slick feel to it.
Kifaru Field Chair
The fieldchair in its more upright position
In a lower position - it can go even lower than this
I've been using this thing at home and
moron JR and I recently took it out to the field. It's a simple yet
ingenious piece of equipment that relies on your own body to provide
tension in the fabric 'base', which keeps the 'back' upright and supporting
your back or head. It will support you in an almost upright sitting
position, all the way down to a flat position, acting much like a
pillow. It takes a few times to figure out how to position the poles
behind you, but once you get the feel/knack for it, it's simple. The
chair rolls up into a compact package. More pics and descriptions

Padded Chamber Pocket
E&E Back Pouch
I've been waiting for this neat little
pouch to come out ever since Mel spoke of it. I'll tell you right
now - I love it! My wife calls it 'cute'. The E&E is based on
the standard back pouch - capacity and dimensions are the same, and
docks and locks in the same manner. However, the E&E has PALS
webbing added on the front, and the sides for attachment of more MOLLE
pouches or modular accessories, its own shoulder straps, a back sleeve
pocket, carry handle, chamber pocket, and additional common loops
inside. The compression straps that normally attach the pouch to the
pack have their own female buckles attached to the pouch when not
docked to a pack, so they can still be used as compression straps.
These buckles stow away when not in use, via some scallops in the
rear sleeve. The 2" wide non-padded shoulder straps disconnect
at the bottom and stow inside the sleeve (which can fit a 70oz baffled
hydration bladder - they're wider and flatter). Inside, a chamber
pocket is hung from the rear common loops and another one can be added
in the front. I attached a Maxpedition Rollypoly (MM Dump pouch) and
a Mini Rollypoly on the other side, which can fit a Nalgene bottle.
They stay folded up out of the way until you need them. With the addition
of a Blackhawk utility pouch on the front, I've been using this as
my mini-pack to carry to the office. E&E might mean 'Escape and
Evasion' , but for me, it's my 'Everyday & Everywhere' pouch :-)
I added a couple more pics of the E&E dock and locked to two MOLLE
compatible vests - the Paraclete RAV and the PT MESA. More pics and
descriptions on Kifaru's
