Re: Got
To me a more interesting question is why NATO backed the Libyan rebels, but won't do anything in Syria? Surely Assad needs to be "got" too...

Navis=Pod 30?
Hard to compare, except in very basic concept. The POD 30 is 2oz lighter (3 oz lighter with excess straps and fabric removed), and a lot warmer. It is an honest 30 degree bag, without a jacket, a...

Re: Re: idea: quilt / sleeping bag hybrid?
It's a great idea, and the only two bags I use most of the time are my WM POD 30 and WM POD 15. Perfect for me. But I guess the idea didn't take off very well, as WM discontinued this des...

"Okay, maybe the sun rises at 8AM and sets at 4PM but you get an hour of dawn and dusk at each end, and maybe build a fire and stay up for another couple hours - so that's 12 hours. And th...

Packa s/m 2008 model
I thought it better to keep the Packa reviews in one place, so this applies to the 2009 medium/large Packa. To be honest, I wanted a Roger Caffin style poncho, but could see it was going to take me m...
