Re: Montbell U.L. Wind Parka
I've had good luck with their Mistral parka. It's a couple of ounces more but seems to be a better performer. I used it last month on a week long hike in Colorado for lounging around camp...

Re: vbl's
I would *assume* that a Gore product is breathable, which would mean it *wouldn't* be a good VBL. Stephenson's WarmLight still makes VBL clothing, as does RBH, but not many others do.

Re: Nunatak in winter?

Montbell Super Stretch Down Hugger #3
I've had my 30F #3 bag down to 12F on a winter camping trip, wearing a mid-weight synthetic parka and pants, under a tarp and bivy combination. I was comfortable up to the 12F temps, although I w...
