Re: EX Light under a UL Down Parka?
I would say no, unless you purchase the UL Parka oversized as they are both sized pretty similarly. I've used a Ex Light under a Alpine Light however, but it (Alpine Light) is cut roomy.

Re: Re: Re: cup to nest in SP 700
the cup/bowl works great- I cut mine to 500 ml, the small fuel canister fits w/ ease- the cup weighs 1.4 oz and I think the HDPE is darn near indestructible the fit is absolutely perfect- like ...

I'd probably go 4.5 just because of the needed velcro, but I like these enough I wanted to round up. They are breathable, they are light and they do a great job of keeping stuff out of your sho...
