About Me 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.

I haven't had any down leakage to speak of, so not sure what to say there, have you asked Tim directly? He's "the man" when it comes to quilts IMHO. I have Black/Charcoal 10d co...

Price Drop
I decided not to bother selling these these individually, so I dropped the price for all 4 to $80 shipped.

Re: Weight
Sorry, I didn't see this until just now. On my scale the Renegades are 10.4 ounces and the Ramblers are 11.1.

Re: Experiences with the 2013 Enlightened Equipment pad attachment system?
Go for the quilt, you'll love it with or w/o the straps. I have the new and old straps and frankly usually sleep w/o either of them, even in 20F temps. I found that just cinching the neck clo...

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...

Montbell UL Down Inner Parka
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...
