Quilt + zip and draft tube
It has never been discussed, by why hasn't anyone ever designed an Arc Alpinist with straps AND a zip + draft tube. It would add about 4 ounces max and eliminate drafts on cold nights and still hav...

I can die happy
This is a religious topic that will invoke strong views. Here are mine: I have owned: A WM Pod 30 - not a quilt. I like it and won’t sell it. Comfortable to 45 or so. In a bivy, may be 35??...

Too narrow
As I said in the reader reviews Pros: Lots of loft for the 400 grams of total weight. More than a WM Highlight for instance. Cons: Too narrow. Way too narrow to sleep in for me and I like sle...

Arc Ghost below freezing?
An Arc Ghost below freezing? You have got to be kidding. See my review of this bag for my detailed thoughts which weren't impressive. The person I sold it to didn't think much of it either. W...

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 ...
