Re: Winter Down Parka recommendations
Years ago I was out one winter at -13F, standing around chatting with people camping nearby while being perfectly warm and comfy. I used a large Marmot baffled down parka, plus the appropriate dow...

Re: What's your favorite backcountry camera?
My priorities are for image quality over ruggedness and weatherproofing - that can be solved with the right case. For maximum portability and minimum weight, I use a Canon G10. The current equi...

Re: hammock?
"hammock?" Beat me to it. As long as you have either a good enough pad or an external underquilt, you'll be fine. The snow should roll off the hammock tarp, assuming you pitch ...

Re: So many choices
"@ Vick: The Hammock! I love the weight of the entire system. Around here for 3 seasons cold temps are not a factor so no problem there. It just doesn't seem like it would be comfortable. ...

Re: Re: Spot 2 vs. McMurdo Fast Find
"A very flippant and light-hearted version of this might say that a PLB is an emergency beacon, while the SPOT is a fancy-that toy." OTOH, the Spot would be a very good way to keep the...

Re: Ghost or Specialist quilt?
I'll echo the choice of the Specialist. For the extra ounce you get better coverage. While I haven't pushed my Specialist down to its 32F limit, Nunatak ratings are generally accurate.

Re: over top
With the MontBell bags the stretch system will have the bag close to your body whether or not you're wearing extra insulation. Plus, if you use VBL clothing, the insulation won't be gettin...

Montbell Super Stretch Down Hugger #3
