Why are you using a two man tarp with the Serenity?
Why are you using a two man tarp with the Serenity? The one man version would be fine.

WTB NeoAir Small
I'm looking for a size small NeoAir. I have a medium but my down bag is loosing some loft in my bivy near the base plus I save 100 grams with the small!

LiteSoul bivy is customisable
Thanks for that Marc. I asked Ron about this and he can customise the LiteSoul for NeoAir compatibility or add full insect mesh in the head which is what I prefer for claustrophobic reasons. ...

Can you fit a sleeping bag in a MLD LiteSoul Bivy with a small NeoAir?
I was wondering if you can fit a sleeping bag in a MLD LiteSoul Bivy using a small NeoAir? By "fit" I mean will the narrowing width of the bivy crush the loft in my sleeping bag? I ...

More on FF
"And i like FF, cos of their Epic shell, just incase the weather turns, and the tent aint good." Unless you are under a small tarp without a bivy this is DEFINITELY not an issue. I ...

Without doubt the FF bags don't seem to have the fill of the other two. I'd go the WM but check you like the width in Paddy's.

Great in their day
I owned one of these packs some years ago and walked the JMT with it. In their day they were great but refinements from all the small gear makers we know and love have made it obsolete IMO. A Si...

Therm-a-Rest Neoair
I am a side sleeper and have used the Prolite 3 and normally a 3/4 length Prolite 4 but find the NeoAir to be far more comfortable. If you blow up the NeoAir on a warm sunny day you will find that ...

Likes - I have the version with the mesh/fabric hood and use the bivy with the mesh over my face 99% of the time. This is much more comfortable and less claustrophobic than momentum fabric over my ...

It won’t fall down, it withstands high wind but there are too many usability issues with this tent to make it easy to use. Perhaps 10 years ago these tents were ahead of their time. Now they are n...
