"Maybe my first solo trip this weekend??"

"Has anyone used polycryo under Hexamid net?"
Thanks for the replies. Just to be clear, I'll use the polycryo under the net, and the cuben floor inside. So it looks like this is a good idea on dry nights; good to hear that even in rain...

Has anyone used polycryo under Hexamid net?
I know that the groundsheet goes on top of the netting and why. But consider: when you're sure that there won't be any rain, maybe put the polycryo groundsheet under the netting, but leave ...

msr mini groundhog stakes: any reviews?"

"Long Underwear Question"
Good question. You want to substitute silk for heavier capilene. First of all with a 15% bag you'll be more than covered at night. Since your legs don't get cold, the hoody and the anor...

"Exped Synmat UL 7 felt "cool" under hips at 5-8 deg C"
I just came back from four nights using a Synmat UL7 in temperatures into the mid 20's F with no problems. I blow it up very firm. I use a Gossamer Gear thin pad--whatever their thinnest is,...
