Has to operate over a wide range

Backcountry Navigator Pro
I just purchased it - so far so good. I'm leaving on a trip and I thought I would play with it. I don't mind the purchase price as I would've easily spent that in good hardcopy maps for...

Re: Help with chooosing a 3 season quilt
20*f is what I use. Some suggestions: Use a blanket, lay on your side and try to adjust the blanky so that you can get an idea of the right width. Too narrow and you'll get cold spots. IMO wide...
