Hooded jacket
On the colder nights of my trips I had the hood of my synthetic jacket (REI Gossamer), a synthetic beanie, and a buff over my face. I'm a big fan of hooded jackets with quilts, great combo.

thanks everybody
Sounds like fenix store is the way to go. I'm thinking of the two battery AA light, I know, it's not ultralight, but I'm not ashamed to say it. (Alright, a little ashamed).

For those of you who have Fenix lights, where do you buy them? Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Re: Condensation fix for single wall tents ?
Was there a point where you were going to say what the new technology is, what it's named, or where we can see it? That might help for those of us who can't read minds.

While one company obviously can't just make a copy of another company's design, what if Mountain Laurel Designs, using 2 layer event and 1.35 silnylon, made an ID Unishelter? How much less...

Mountain Hardwear Phantom 32 F, 800 down
The phantom 32 was my first light-weight item, and is still my favorite. Loft is great, the hood fits great, and there is enough room for me to add a down jacket or vest. The one downside is the .85 ...

Similar to tarptent designs, but no vestibule and made out of Golite's heavy-duty silnylon, so it weighs a little more (3.5 lbs). I have used it in Tahoe National Forest where it was used for me and a...
