Re: Re: Which is warmer?? Chaos or Micro Puff Hooded
Dave, The Chaos insulation may have been compressed in the manner it was displayed. The Micropuff may have fit your torso your torso tighter as John mentioned. The Chaos should be much warmer an...

Re: Re: The question is, with the same thermometer registering the same 30 degrees both locations, would the bag seem warmer at altitude as there is less air to conduct heat out?
Mike, I calculated .5 (~reduction in insulation) divided by 5.88 (~clo value for a sea level 30 degree rated bag) = .085 rounded to 9%. The skin evaporative increase is greater than the bags con...

Re: Which is warmer?? Chaos or Micro Puff Hooded

Re: The question is, with the same thermometer registering the same 30 degrees both locations, would the bag seem warmer at altitude as there is less air to conduct heat out?
Steve, When you sleep you generate about .8x your Basal metabolic rate (BMR) heat output. BMR at altitude may initially be elevated 20 to 30 percent above those at sea level. After 2 to 3 days, ...

Re: Re: Re: Bag warmth vs. Altitude @ same temp.

Re: Re: Re: Re: "I did not know how to stay warm when it was cold"
Mark, I share John’s concern that something may be amiss with your references that support the statement, "At 0F, you 1/2 the average persons base metabolism is used warming air." Th...

Jetboil Personal Cooking System
My piezo failed after a couple of days. It took one second to fix it by bending down the ignitor rod to make a slightly smaller gap (1/8" smaller). I then used it in Alaska for 1 1/2 months twice a da...
