My Locale Minnesota
About Me 43, and in some of the best shape of my life after losing 50 lbs a couple years ago. I've always loved getting "out there" and backpacking is one of my preferred ways. I spend as much time as I can backpacking and car camping with my kids during the Summer. I'm an avid target shooter and enjoy kayaking with my family, ATVing and snowmobiling, and just about anything that get's me in the outdoors.

Tim's stuff
I'll again echo my extreme satisfaction with Tim's quilts. I have 2, and recently sent my 40F Rev 10d/10d back to him to have it overstuffed a bit. It came back even better than I had hop...

Silnylon
Not a dumb question at all. Silnylon doesn't breath. The advantage is its weight and how small it packs down. I planned to keep it in my pack when rain was a small chance, if I "know&qu...

LT4s
On the LT4S it's just a threaded insert, I don't believe there is a rubber grommet there.

Enlightened Equipment Revelation X
This was my first quilt, and I couldn't be happier. I needed a new cold weather bag, so I went with the 20F 6' Wide and had the 30% over stuff. The loft on this quilt is incredible, more tha...

gossamer murmur
I would have liked to give the 2012 Murmur a 4.5 if I could have. My only criticism is that the stitching is not as well done as I would have expected. There were a few loose threads in some of the ...

REI Revelcloud Jacket
I actually liked a lot about this jacket, but I ended up returning it to REI for one simple reason - it didn't keep me warm. The fit and quality is excellent, I especially like the breast pocke...

I couldn't ask for more in a lightweight down insulating layer. The MB UL Down Inner Parka is awesome in every regard. The fit of the XL is perfect for me and leaves plenty of room for a fleec...
