My Locale Wet & Humid Southeast....
About Me My stomping grounds are the SE US, and 90% of the time, somewhere on the AT in GA, TN, or NC. Other times I enjoy going to the Smokies, or other smaller wilderness areas such as the Savage Gulf area.
Most of my trips are between 2 - 5 days long, with rare 7 day long trips. My total pack weights are generally under 20 lbs, unless trying new gear, or carrying extra for the kids. In the dead of summer, I enjoy SUL hikes, and have given thought to XUL (almost there...)

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Question
I have gone from using the NeoAir's during our summer months to a small ProLite 3. There is of course a little weight savings, but the best thing is that it doesn't feel as hot as the NeoAi...

Good catch! I was thinking of the All Season R-Value... So wow, 5.7... that is almost twice the pad as the Exped UL7! :)

Re: Exped UL7 W versus NeoAir XTherm L
I have different experiences with the Exped pads and my arms sliding off... I have been lying on my older Exped SynMat 7 fairly often over the last couple of weeks (granted, in my living room at...

Price Drop
So, my Ex Light Anorak came in a few days ago, and I am pretty sure I am going to keep it. It fits better now than my Ex Light jacket, and I really like that it has a pocket, waist cinch, and a hoo...

Update on Jetboil Warranty
So, today I got my burner unit back from Jetboil. From the date that they received the stove burner, to today, it has been 22 days (including "non-buisness days"). I only say this because...

ZPacks Hexamid
Sounds to me like Sean has either never used a Hexamid, or just didn't understand how to. I am another satisfied Hexamid Solo Plus tarp & Hexanet user, and I am quite sure that you will ...

Re: Sizing
Stephen, I think it is pretty true to size, however, that is a tough question to answer as there are so many opinions on that. So, here are some of my rough measurements that may help some: Ches...

Cat Cut on ZPacks tarps
If I am not mistaken, ZPacks used to list cat cut as an option when buying their flat tarps. I just looked and it's not there anymore, but I feel sure it was at one time... Maybe I am wrong. ...

Like kev, I also used a 35 F Prodigy from Enlightened Equipment on a 7 day Olympics hike in which it rained every night but one. Not to mention all the other times I used it here in the Southeast w...

It's here!
So, my Anorak showed up today! And it is all that I hoped it would be. The fit was great, the sleeves are long enough, and the loft is what I would expect. Weight on my size large is 6.6 oz sans st...
