Bag for AT thru-hike
I recently decided I'm going to do a thru-hike of the AT in 2008. Currently I have a WM Caribou which is a 35 degree bag. I was thinking I could put a silk liner with that to push it down to 25...

Re: Weight
It's actually 2.4 oz/yd fabric anyway ($1 yard walmart siliconized ripstop) so it's not the lightest it could be but the fabric was the right price and is good to practice on.

Re: Cone and FL550
Surely BPL isn't selling the wrong cone for the 550? AGG clearly lists seperate models on their site for the 500 and 550 and their UL versions.

I'm going to have to pass on the bivy and quilt. I just ordered too much yesterday in prep for my AT thru-hike.

Re: Walmart Sil
Ok, the waterproof material I got is 2.2 oz/sqyd so I think it's probably 1.9 oz silicone coated ripstop. Should be good for some pack parts and maybe some other stuff.
