I don't care what it calculates out to.......I'm using my Insul-Mat max thermo, and sleeping like a baby. I've gotten too old to go strictly on efficiency.

I used some 100% DEET last fall on a trip, and accidently got it on my trekking pole handles. It seemed to eat them, and they're still sticky. That scares me. I did have good luck with peremeth...

Mountain Hardware has a good web page on how to stuff a bag.

I guess I should add that I'm 5'10", and advancing age has me drifting up to around 200#. So your mileage with the Lafuma may vary. Shoot, for $34, order, try it on, and send it back i...

I did try out my Lafuma this weekend. Quite possibly the snuggest fitting bag I've ever tried. No way the "warm up" system works with me. It ran out of gas between 30-35 degrees, and ...

Heatsheet blanket?
How would one of these work for extending the temperature range of a sleeping bag? Assuming you could get it wrapped and keep it on?

Max Thermo
I had mine down to 18 degrees, and didn't notice any cold spots. But I was using my antique George L. Herter's Canadian Goose down sleeping bag that weighs about 10 pounds. I'd try it o...

Lafuma bag
I got two, in LH and RH, so I can zip them together and share some bodily warmth!

Marmot Atom Mens Regular 40 Degree
Nice bag. 1/2 zipper is kind of a pain, and makes it hard to use as a quilt. Seems true to rating.

ULA Catalyst
Replaced my Exos 58 with this, much more comfortable, with more weight. Got a deal on a 2008 model, and added the dual stays. A lot bigger pack than I'll use most of the time. Gained some weight o...

ULA Circuit
Switched to this for more durability, and the ability to carry more water in the desert. Works like a champ, and you couldn't ask for better customer service.

Osprey Exos 58
I have to ding it a little for the hip belt. I think the hip belts on the large runs small, because it didn't wrap around me enough to be effective. And that may not be fair to ding it, because al...

Golite Ultra 20
Mine kept me warm in the upper 20s, so I'm happy. I'm not completely sure it would reach 20, and keep you warm for 8 hours. But it's a great product for a great price.
