About Me Jay Ham started backpacking in 1990 and went lightweight in 1995. Wanting his children to experience and share in his love of the outdoors, he became obsessed with reducing the family's base weight to make backpacking with small children possible. He and his wife began designing and making much of their family's gear (including kid-sized frameless packs and top bags), as lightweight gear was scarce at the time. With a Masters in Soil Science, Jay now manages a 2.5 million acre Soil Survey project in remote Northern Arizona.

Re: 800 fill half bag, 6 ounces
I still have this half bag for sale. Willing to take $80. I've been thinking about how to answer the question of "how warm." Really hard to say for sure. Depends on so many factors...

Thanks Bradford. Likely the difference between obsession and mass production- my bag verses Golite... Sale is pending.

Looked and can't find my notes on the amount of down. I did remeasure the bag's loft, and would add that it has nearly 3.5 inches of single layer loft.

I'll measure the bag when I get home from work. I have a 32 inch waist, and it is very loose fitting before cinching the draw cord. I'll post measurements this afternoon. I'm 5'7&qu...

Re: Re: 800-fill top bag, 19 ounces, 3-inch loft
Yeah, this is a warmer bag than Golite's 20 degree bag. I've had it down in the teens, using a hooded parka, and was toasty warm. As to how much down...I'll have to look and see if I...

Hood pattern
Kevin, I don't know of a pattern for an insulated hood. There might be one out there. I wanted a differential cut, such that fabric on the inside of the hood is smaller than the outside part...
