My Locale Colorado
About Me My primary pursuits are mountaineering (hiking with the goal of a summit) but I am beginning to re-kindle my love of Backpacking. In particular I have become a big fan of the Ultralight approach and love this website. I seem to be in a perpetual state of shelter/sleep system evaluation. My current setup for shelter is a GG SpinnTwinn with YMG Bug Bivy 1.0 (summer) or Katabatic Bristlecone Bivy(colder). Sleep system is Katabatic Chisos 40 degree quilt with Neoair short.

Katabatic Chisos
Wow, can't believe your selling the Chisos either :) I own one and it's an amazing piece of gear. Good luck with your sale. The Chisos won't last long.

Re: Re: Jetboil SOL
I haven't heard any recent reports about that. I did a fair amount of research when I bought my Sol Ti a few months ago and didn't see anything nor heard since.

Katabatic Gear Bristlecone (Regular Length, Wide Width)
I have had the Bristlecone Bivy for a year and really appreciate the side zipper for ease of entry/exit. The mesh is just right for breathability and views. The stake out loops are nice when you wan...
