Re: combine it with a CCF pad for safety
"You wouldn't want to be out in very cold weather and have your pad deflate on you." Was out on a 4 day trip one winter where my Thermarest deflated on the first night, and I didn&...

Re: Re: Single-wall winter tent?
I did an overnight in Vermont a year ago March, where I tried to get the pack weight down to an absolute minimum - 14 pounds total. To do that I used an MLD tarp and bivy combo. It sleeted that n...

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: Montbell Super Stretch
I've used this bag with the BPL Pro 90 parka and pants down to 12F without issue. Seems warm enough to me.

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: Re: Re: Vapor Barrier question

I ordered a tent about mid-December of last year also, and would be stunned at this point if it ever showed up. I suspect that you'll never get a refund simply because Big Sky doesn't have it - the f...
