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: Relenting on NeoAir XLITE
I love the NeoAir design in general, and for me, they are my favorite. I started with the original and loved it. Most comfy of any other pad (to me). Lighter than others. Packed small. 2+ ye...

Carbon fiber lid
I have a lid made from an aluminum pie pan on one of my pots, it works pretty well. But I gotta admit, I like my carbon fiber lid from Ruta Locura a lot better than that aluminum lid. Much more dur...

Another vote for GFG down booties
I have both the down socks and the overbooties from GooseFeet Gear and love them. The socks are pure bliss... For me, if its cold enough for the down booties I will also carry the overbooties b...

Good luck with mine from Lawson Kline
I am about 99% sure that the mini dropper bottle I am using for bleach is from a kit that Lawson Kline used to sell on his site, although, I may be wrong... Anyway, for the last 1.5 - 2 years, I...

Re: Re: Fit on different MB models...
I understand that the Ex Light & the ULDIP is intended to be midlayers, which is why I stress to a lot of folks that I don't use either of these jackets on their own, but as a part of a lay...

Fit on different MB models...
Dan, I don't understand why, but I find that my UL Down Inner Parka has a bit different fit than my Alpine Light Parka. I am 5'10" and 200 lbs. My ULDIP is a size XL and fits me wonder...

Re: Re: Re: Zebralight H52 head strap
Bob, I am fine without the GITD holder. Sure its neat and all but not necessary for me. I usually just slide the headlamp down from my head to my neck when going to bed so I always know where it is.

Re: Zebralight H52 head strap
I am still using the older H51, so it is supposedly a hair heavier than the newer H52... but, when I got my H51, one of the first things I did was change out the headband and drop a ton of weight.....

Re: "When your pants are kinda heavy..."
I'd say that's pretty average, although, by the other comments, it looks like maybe not... I wear a large pair of Columbia Silver Ridge 2 convertible pants. With the supplied nylon belt,...
