UL on the cheap; Sleep system?
I see nylon at Walmart all the time for .50 $/yard. Or catch a closeout at REI, but a cheap LaFuma, and cut it down.

Blacks with Packs?
Uh.................yeah. If Congress suddenly matched exactly the economic/ethnic/gender distribution of the USA, magic would happen. Honestly, if you believe there is a difference in a rich white ...

The Banff Film Festival will be in Moab when I'm there in March. Maybe I should go?

Patagonia Houdini vs North Face Verto?
Wore my new Houdini under my bike jersey this morning, since it was 43 and about a 20mph wind when we started. Worked great. Sorry, off topic, I know. Had to brag a little.

Philmont Backpacks
Gossamer Gear's web site has a picture of a troop that all used Mariposa Plus backpacks, and I think they're a lot smaller than that recommendation.

Damn you, BPL
Having a wife who know what kind of quilt you are talking about is pretty awesome.

Marmot Atom Mens Regular 40 Degree
Nice bag. 1/2 zipper is kind of a pain, and makes it hard to use as a quilt. Seems true to rating.

ULA Catalyst
Replaced my Exos 58 with this, much more comfortable, with more weight. Got a deal on a 2008 model, and added the dual stays. A lot bigger pack than I'll use most of the time. Gained some weight o...

ULA Circuit
Switched to this for more durability, and the ability to carry more water in the desert. Works like a champ, and you couldn't ask for better customer service.

Osprey Exos 58
I have to ding it a little for the hip belt. I think the hip belts on the large runs small, because it didn't wrap around me enough to be effective. And that may not be fair to ding it, because al...

Golite Ultra 20
Mine kept me warm in the upper 20s, so I'm happy. I'm not completely sure it would reach 20, and keep you warm for 8 hours. But it's a great product for a great price.
