Donald, do you really need a 10' bag? Or can you use a 20' bag and wear your insulation layer while sleeping to boost the rating? If you consider that and still need a 10'F bag, the M...

My snow claw is one of the more recent models. I used it on one winter trip for bivy prep; I can move snow at a higher rate than with a shovel due to the low inertia of the blade; I dug into a 45'...
