My Locale Colorado Rockies
About Me I'm 45 years old, 6'4" and 195 lbs. I've backpacked in the Colorado Rockies, the Wasatch and Uinta mountains, and in Zions National Park. I mountain bike in the Colorado Rockies. I've kayaked in Yellowstone and on Flaming Gorge, and rafted the Green, Colorado and Snake rivers. My trips are usually a week long or less. I love to hike wherever I can. I'm an Assistant Scout Master and I'm often out with the Scouts. My immediate goal is to thru-hike the Colorado trail. I've lived in Utah, Ohio, Illinois, Argentina, California, and Colorado.

Re: LW Hoody
The Shak is great below 40°F. Above that I use a Smartwool Shadow Hoody. The men's Shadow is, unfortunately, no longer made. I've used mine up to about 80°F. If you don't mind wearing...

Re: Bag Liners
I agree with Ben on this one and agree with you that keeping your bag clean is important. At home I sleep in an REI silk top and bottom to protect the bedding from body oils. I would do the same to...

Re: URL problems
Now that you mention this, I had a post that was meant to have 2 URLs several weeks ago. One URL worked, and the other one didn't despite numerous attempts. I didn't take the time to figure...

Re: ibex shak..
Dennis, I use the Hooded Shak as a cold weather (below freezing) base layer. It is great for aerobic activities in the winter. It will never see the inside of my pack, so the space it takes up is n...

PJ, I have to admit to having much more experience using a quilt in a hammock than on the ground. You are right to question the strengths and weaknesses of a quilt. I hope I didn't sound dogmat...

Re: Re: Quilts in cold weather (was are straps necessary on a quilt?)
PJ, I wanted to respectfully challenge some of your assumptions. This, of course, only applies to my gear. You may be correct in other cases. I usually sleep in a hammock where I find the quilt cle...
