Re: JMT Record Attempts - 2014
Michael Popov and I started at the same time on top of Whitney. He obviously destroyed me in that "race". I passed him the first night while he was napping at Vidette and he passed me...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Why the obsession over sleeping bag/quilt warmth but not sleeping pad warmth?
If I take a quilt I am normally a little cold in at 30 degrees and 3 ounces of down, I will be warm. There is no possible way to do this with 3 extra ounces of pad. This is why I usually carry ...

Re: Down or synthetic
Just give Tim from EE a call. I would be willing to bet that for a very small charge, he would make the foot-box any width you wanted. It may be a few ounces more with the extra fabric and down...

Fenix L2D-CE

Golite 2006 Reed Pants
I got the 2006 version with out the leg zippers because it is what I wanted, (the lighter version). I'm sure the breathability that Golite claims for it is accurate, but something twice as good...
