My Locale Grants Pass, Oregon
About Me I'm a Physician Assistant working at a lung clinic. I'm married and have two young daughters. I dabble in ultralight, bushcraft, and even car camping. I enjoy making my own equipment, but also believe some things make more since to buy. Volunteering with the local search and rescue gives me a practical use for light weight gear.

Re: Good point
I have the Kid Comfort III. It's nice and all. Carries well and nice features, but weight and size are just too much. I would only recommend it if your pushing the upper limits of the weight...

Re: Exped UL Downmat vs Neoair XTherm
I have both, but have not had a chance to try out the XTherm as the weather has been too warm. Being able to store the Neoair compressed is a big plus for me. Unless I find something surprising w...

Re: Re: FlytePacker Raft
It takes me 5 minutes and at the end I feel quite tingly. For fun I've held my breath afterward with a pulse oximeter on. After breathing off so much CO2 I was able to hold my breath long eno...
