My Locale Wet & Humid Southeast....
About Me I have been backpacking a little over 3 years now, but in that time I have logged a number of trail miles and went through a lot of gear trying to find my sweet spot. Now, thanks to cuben fiber, alcohol stoves, down and of course a better understanding, my TPW has severly dropped! My cold weather BPW is 9 - 10 lbs and my warm weather BPW is 5 - 6 lbs.
About 95% of the time I hike with family or friends and in the SouthEastern states. My favorites places to get away are anywhere along the AT as well as in the Great Smoky Mountains.

Re: polycryo?
I agree about going with polycro... it is much less expensive, will weigh the same, if not less (depending on what thickness cuben you use) and will last about the same length of time...

Down T
John, Shug uses a Montbell Down T and loves his... I am sure that he talks about it in specific in his videos, but can't remember which one, and he has a bunch... but he can be seen wearing it ...

Re: Relenting on NeoAir XLITE
I love the NeoAir design in general, and for me, they are my favorite. I started with the original and loved it. Most comfy of any other pad (to me). Lighter than others. Packed small. 2+ ye...

Carbon fiber lid
I have a lid made from an aluminum pie pan on one of my pots, it works pretty well. But I gotta admit, I like my carbon fiber lid from Ruta Locura a lot better than that aluminum lid. Much more dur...

Another vote for GFG down booties
I have both the down socks and the overbooties from GooseFeet Gear and love them. The socks are pure bliss... For me, if its cold enough for the down booties I will also carry the overbooties b...

Re: Re: Fit on different MB models...
I understand that the Ex Light & the ULDIP is intended to be midlayers, which is why I stress to a lot of folks that I don't use either of these jackets on their own, but as a part of a lay...
