Small? Light?
I was surprised that 3.5 pounds is called light and that the large stuff sack is compared to a small sleeping bag in the video. It looks pretty big and sounds pretty heavy to me. Is it really sma...

Mummy as quilt
Claustrophobia is not an issue for me, but I too use my mummy bag zipped open a lot of the time. Many nights I start on top of it and as it gets colder/windier get under it, get in it, zip it, and...

The fish were very plentiful and hungry on the JMT when I was there. I took a 9' 4wt fly rod rather than my tenkara. My pack weight was still at 15 pounds plus food and water. I felt it was ...
