My Locale Wet & Humid Southeast....
About Me I have been backpacking a little over 3 years now, but in that time I have logged a number of trail miles and went through a lot of gear trying to find my sweet spot. Now, thanks to cuben fiber, alcohol stoves, down and of course a better understanding, my TPW has severly dropped! My cold weather BPW is 9 - 10 lbs and my warm weather BPW is 5 - 6 lbs.
About 95% of the time I hike with family or friends and in the SouthEastern states. My favorites places to get away are anywhere along the AT as well as in the Great Smoky Mountains.

Re: Sewn in groundsheet
Duane, I used the solo plus ground sheet inside my Hexamid, on top of the mesh. At each corner, as well as at the middle of each side, the ground sheet can be clipped up to the tarp. By doing this,...

Sewn in groundsheet
If you are going to have the ground sheet sewn in, I would suggest also seeing if the mesh could be sewn up the tarp a few inches rather than at the edge. As I said before, and others here, when th...

GSI has some nice hard anodized AL pots. I have the 1.8L cook pot that came in the '09 Dualist cook kit. The pot (with handles) and supplied lid weighs 8.9 oz. I also have the Halulite tea kett...

Yes... there are drawbacks.
I actually sold my Hexamid tent a couple of months ago now. To be honest, I sold it because I had purchased another tent, so I decided to part with the Hexamid to help dampen the monetary blow a bi...

Another in the zip-off camp...
Count me in the zip-off camp. About 4 years ago now, I went shopping for my hiking pants. I tried on pants by REI, Ex Officio, Mountain Hardware, TNF, and Columbia. Of all of these, the Columbia pa...

Re: Re: NeoAir as a pack frame
Clayton, No, I don't blow up my Neo when using it in my pack. I will actually push about 95% of the air out, then fold it in half, then thirds, and it is a good fit inside either my Blast 30...

NeoAir as a pack frame
I have been using my NeoAir as a "pack frame" for the last year and a half and it works just fine... However, I will admit, it is not so much the pad that is actually providing any real s...

For me, yes. I love my NeoAirs... although, I wish that they still made the older Original version...
