No ruffled feathers here
Brad, It's through discussions like these that we learn, so you've done a great service I think. Some will never be comfortable sleeping with a quilt. Others will find them the best ...

Comparing Highlite to Ghost
The Highlite is not exactly a good comparison to the Ghost. Based on the way each company rates their product there is only a 3 degree difference, but there is basically a 1/2 inch loft difference...

More to leave out
Wondering if you really need the balaclava for the JMT in August, but I'm not familiar with temps in that area, so maybe you do. If so, I'd think you'd also need at least a light pair ...

Re: jacket/pack
