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.

GFG down pants
I usually just stuff my GFG down pants, along with all my other down gear, right into my pack liner, however, there has been times that I also stuffed all of my down garments into one of the ZPacks...

6 stakes for the hexamid
I would just like to add that it is rare that I use all 10 stakes when setting up my Hexamid Solo plus. I really only use 6. And as others mentioned, it is very easy to set up.

GooseFeet Gear + a bunch!
Another vote for the GFG down socks and the overbooties. As mentioned, the socks can be worn inside a tent, all clean & warm, and then for a pee break, or camp chores, slip the overbooties on. ...

Cuben as ground sheet
I love me some cuben fiber, however, one area I have always been a bit leary with cuben is using it as a groundsheet. In the past, I used the Lite version (0.74) cuben floor in my Hexamid tent for ...

Just curious... for those that use the Altra's, specifically the LP1.5's, what do you think of the traction as far as wet rocks & roots?

CCF on top IME
In my personal experience, I found that I was warmer with my 1/8" Thinlight pad layered on top of my NeoAir. And this was a noticeable difference. I cowboy camped. The ambient temps were a...
