Re: Connecting Polycro ground sheets
I would use clear packing tape. There are two varieties, one thin one thick. Try the thin one first, about 3.50 per roll. I like the Scotch Sealing Tape.

Re: What is the lightest insulated pullover?
Another vote for the Skaha. If we're talking about apples to apples we have to note that the Skaha is 800+ down and fully baffled at 3/4" (not sewn through). Also that it uses 5.0 oz of do...

Patagonia Men's Wool 2 Crew long sleeve

Rating 4/5 because the construction was under par. They use tape to form the bivy shape from a single piece of material. The tape job was sloppy with some holes in the bottom. Other than that a great ...

Thumbs up to GG. They don't make a lot of items, rather a few quality niche packs and other gear. I really like their sourcing of other industry items and presenting them for backpacking, such as the ...
