PCT without a bivy - wow!
I like your account Richard. Even with a tarp you made the whole PCT without a bivy - wow! The use what you have mentality of finding rocks, some wood or natural shelter seems key.

MLD Superlight bivy with cuben floor - durable without ground sheet?
I am looking at getting this bivy and just wondering how other users have fared with the cuben floor without a ground sheet. The ground sheet seems unnecessary as it adds weight and you might as we...

Tarps pushed to the limit - tell us your stories

Therm-a-Rest Neoair
I am a side sleeper and have used the Prolite 3 and normally a 3/4 length Prolite 4 but find the NeoAir to be far more comfortable. If you blow up the NeoAir on a warm sunny day you will find that ...

Likes - I have the version with the mesh/fabric hood and use the bivy with the mesh over my face 99% of the time. This is much more comfortable and less claustrophobic than momentum fabric over my ...
