Can you use a down parka as primary insulation in the wet?
I notice Glen Van Peski advocates a Western Mountaineering Flight Jacket as his primary insulation in his gear list. I was wondering, is there anyone else here who uses a down jacket in the same wa...

Sounds like a poncho is not for me
I have the BMW bivy so that's not a problem. But I would be freezing if it was below 50, a strong wind was blowing and it was raining with just a windshirt over a base layer! I think you guys a...

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 ...

Stephenson 2R
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...

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 sleeping bags people normally say are too...
