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...

Advice from experienced poncho tarp users
I am thinking of getting a poncho tarp and the Mountain Laurel Designs 1.35 Silnylon Pro seems the best because of its length and catenary ridge line. The review here seems very favorable. However,...

What is differential cut?
The very first review of this bag by Dr RJ mentioned differential cut. Does anyone know what this is and whether it is a standard or a good idea to ask for?

Nallo 3 GT lighter per person than Akto
Verndal, Yes, you are right the Akto is 46 oz and the Nallo 3 GT is 88 oz but the Nallo is a 2 person tent so that's 44oz per person.

More on Nallo
"indeed my girlfriend would not approve of tarp sleeping... up here in Canadia, our bugs will leave a trail of blood running down your arm" That's why you need the BMW bivy. The Nallo 2 is OK...

You name it, I've used it. Biblers, Integral Designs MKIII, tarptents and they all have the same problem - they are heavier than a tarp and have less room. An 8x10 tarp + a BMW bivy is my preferred...

BMW is small
The BMW pad is really small. It may have more insulation, but it looks like a childrens' version of a sleeping mat because of its size. If you more around a lot, I would get the Thermarest.

I have seen both
I have seen both of these tents and own a Hilleberg Nallo 3GT and the Stephensons. Comments: - I hate the fact that the Stephensons does not have a vestibule. When you open the door, rain wil...

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 ...

Titanuium Goat Ptarmigan Bivy
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 ...

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...

I like the design of this pack but have issues over the quality and durability. On its second use, and with no real loads and no bush whacking, the mesh separated from its elastic on one of the sid...

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...
