My Locale Western US
About Me Mostly 2 to 3 day loops, with a couple weeklong trips too, likely going 2 weeks or more with upcoming severance. Lightening up but with an eye towards toughness and hiking convenience (secure drying on the trail. quick set up, etc...), but also a bit better food (and beverage) for most overnights. Then again I might want to do a spartan "fast n'light" overnight ... and the gear closet grows.
I'll update my gear list tomorrow ...

Tough to tell this early

Re: How well does the Enlightened Equipment strap system REALLY work?
They work to secure the quilt to the pad but I do not get tangled up like a mummy bag. No issues with them out on a trip, just a little bit more setup and tear down time
