Re: Montbell Down Jacket
An Alpine Light works great for me from May through August at higher elevations in the Sierra. Sometimes it was too warm. A UL Down would be better for pure summer use. Although the Mirage looks li...

Re: Re: pct thru hike
A bivy/tarp combo is great for the PCT. The bivy just has to block bugs and wind. Maybe give a little water resistance, but breathability is more important. Go with a shaped tarp that will stand up...
