My Locale Oregon and Washington
About Me I started hiking about 45 years ago. My first backpack was 40 years ago. I currently try to do one backpack trip of 5 nights every month (which can be tricky in the winter) 20 to 50 miles. Mostly I stay around Mount Hood, Columbia Gorge, Mount Adams, Goat Rocks, and the Olympic Peninsula. In recent years I have shifted to lightweight - my pack weight without food and water is about 15 lb (7 kg). I make a lot of my own gear - silnylon tarp-tent, bivy, synthetic bag, simple bag style pack. My sleeping pad is a Therm-a-Rest air mattress.

Re: Re: wilderness
You might have me beat by a couple years : ) I disagree - wilderness is pretty much the same as 50 years ago. Lots of trash back then also. There are spots right next to scenic viewpoints ...

Re: 25gram canister stove? Brs-3000t. Is this the new lightest canister stove?
So it weighs 1 ounce which saves 2 ounces compared to traditional 3 ounce stoves. Hardly makes any difference. One month shipping? Must be shipping from China. I just ordered something like t...

Re: Re: Re: Baffles
I would rather have down evenly distributed. Maybe more on top because there's more pressure pulling on it. If I'm too warm, I'll unzip.

Re: Questions about a Solid/Partially-Solid Inner for a 'Mid
If you want to be warmer, it would weigh less to just have thicker sleeping bag Argon 67 from dutchweargear or Nobul1 or 2 from tittaniumgoat would make a good inner. Fairly breathable and very...

Re: Re: Re: Primaloft gold
For thinner bags down has less advantage because the fabric is a bigger percentage of total weight. Plus the weight of the baffles. For 2.5 oz apex, CLO = 2.05 like you said By my measure ht...

Re: shelter center pole
I have 60 inch center pole. That provides enough to move around a little and not contact inside of tent and maybe get condensation on me. The peak of tent is narrow so that space isn't really...
