Re: Lighweight summer bag/quilt
$175 for an EE Rev 50* bag is pretty darn good for what you get. You get high quality fabric and the ability to fully unzip and just lay it over you. You may be able to find a used one here?

Re: Update
JP, Nobul2 is just the highest quality lightest 10d fabric that Ti-Goat could find. It breaths well, it's soft, and has a light DWR. It's an okay density and is probably around a 37...

Re: Bay Area GGG Host

Shoulder pockets on the Fight 40 are great. Just remember, even though we both disgust the little minor things, they are still both great packs.

Re: Re: Flight 40

Re: Re:
Nobul2 is horrible for down filled quilts. I made that mistake with one of mine and I wake up each morning with hundreds on little down plums on me. Argon, Nobul1, or Pertex GL are the way to g...
