Re: best winter pack for carrying snowshoes
I've had good luck with an REI Flash 65 pack: http://www.rei.com/product/778468 They also have a 50L model. Not the absolute lightest available, but still light and comfortable.

Re: Re: Down bags for side sleepers
If you're talking about hammock sleeping, then I agree that a Nunatak quilt is the way to go, with some kind of balaclava for warmth on the head (Of course, Nunatak makes an excellent one for r...

Re: Down sleeping bags for side sleepers (with stretch)
I've had very good luck with the MontBell Super Stretch Down 800 series. The elasticized baffles work very well in allowing you to move and stretch inside the bag and to give you room to add i...

Re: compact camera for backpacking

My favorite hammock right now is the Warbonnet. The Hennessy has issues with the bottom entry slit, and needing to put a pad on the bottom of the hammock for insulation. Also, take a look at th...

Re: Which bivy do I buy? Your vote decides!
Another vote for the Soul Side Zip bivy. I have one in Momentum, because I use it under a tarp or in a leanto. Get the Event option if you need more waterproofness. Very well made.

Re: SMD Lunar Solo Enhanced
As a former Lunar Solo E owner I'd recommend the TarpTent Sublite Sil instead. I found it difficult to get a good pitch for the Lunar Solo on anything less than level ground, and when not taug...

Montbell Super Stretch Down Hugger #3
I've had my 30F #3 bag down to 12F on a winter camping trip, wearing a mid-weight synthetic parka and pants, under a tarp and bivy combination. I was comfortable up to the 12F temps, although I w...
