My Locale Wet & Humid Southeast....
About Me I have been backpacking a little over 3 years now, but in that time I have logged a number of trail miles and went through a lot of gear trying to find my sweet spot. Now, thanks to cuben fiber, alcohol stoves, down and of course a better understanding, my TPW has severly dropped! My cold weather BPW is 9 - 10 lbs and my warm weather BPW is 5 - 6 lbs.
About 95% of the time I hike with family or friends and in the SouthEastern states. My favorites places to get away are anywhere along the AT as well as in the Great Smoky Mountains.

Re: Re: Re: Enlightened
I also like that the Climashield Apex quilts don't use the sewn thru construction to create baffles like down needs. Instead, it is simply sewn around the perimeter, which means there are no sp...

Re: Enlightened
I really like my "summer" quilt that Tim made me. It uses 2.5 Climashield Apex and the old M50. It is 76" long, 53" wide at the head and has a straight taper down to 39.5" ...

DIY Pot Stands
Not trying to talk you out of buying one of Tinny's pot stands, but I will say that for about $20 (or less) you can pick up a roll of the hardware cloth from a home improvement store and make a...

Re: Klymit Static V question
I also picked up the Static V pad a while back, however, I found it right opposite of comfortable. Those spaced out baffles were a bit uncomfortable to me, especially when lying on my sides. They s...
