Re: piles of gear
Thanks Michael, I don't see myself doing much digging, and folks I'll be traveling with will have real shovels too, so between the cost and the multiple-use factor of the snowclaw, I'm...

Re: "The snow is pilling up, and so is the gear"
Sure David, I think I've got an idea of what people think will work and what won't.

Re: Re: The snow is piling up, and so is the gear
Sounds like bottles are the next item on my list, whether Gatorade or Nalgene. Which clothing items should I cut? I'm considering a winter camping 101 course with the Tahoe Rim Trail Associa...

Re: Re: The snow is piling up, and so is the gear
Thanks so much for your thorough feedback Mark. On the top layers - I figured I would over pack until I better understand my needs. I forgot to mention I do have ski goggles and sunglasses, as we...

The snow is piling up, and so is the gear
This website has been invaluable in getting ready for my first winter camping in the Sierra. I'd like to list what I've got so far, and get your thoughts. I'm not necessarily looking fo...

Re: Re: RE:sleeping in extremes
THANK YOU ROGER!!! I'm no scientist, but I'd been thinking this for years when told the old adage of needing to pee making you colder. Now I know I'm not crazy. I'd be curious ...

Re: mids
Unless you are using it in snow, I'd check out the Mountain Laurel Designs Speed mid. Edit: It does sound like you're looking at snow usage - The golite may be the best deal going then.

Stupid question, treating melted snow?
I have assumed that you don't have to treat melted snow to be used as drinking water in winter camping, but it occurred to me I better check. If you do, what's your preferred method? Does a...

Jacks R Better No Sniveller quilt
I have used this quilt 15 nights this summer, all in the northern Sierra in the greater Lake Tahoe area. Temperatures were between the low 30's and the high 40's. The quilt was used in con...

I have used this pack a total of 17 days this summer, including 15 on a thru-hike of the Tahoe Rim Trail. The pack volume and design suit my needs perfectly for carrying up to 5 days worth of food,...

Titanium Goat Basic Bivy
This review is for the large bivy with the old-style bug headnet (a mesh headnet bag sewn across the chest, pulled over the head, under the bivy). This is the best value hands down in water resista...

Mountain Hardwear Phantom 32 F, 800 down
The phantom 32 was my first light-weight item, and is still my favorite. Loft is great, the hood fits great, and there is enough room for me to add a down jacket or vest. The one downside is the .85 ...

REI Minimalist Bivy Sack
During the time I have used this bivy, I have experienced no condensation, even when the single wall tent I was in was dripping. I have not found a great solution to getting the bug-mesh away from my...

I've spent 3 solid days in this rain suit in a storm in Point Reyes, and one in the Sierra foothills. The suit was totally water and windproof, breathed very well (sweat only under pack straps and...

Golite Den 2
Similar to tarptent designs, but no vestibule and made out of Golite's heavy-duty silnylon, so it weighs a little more (3.5 lbs). I have used it in Tahoe National Forest where it was used for me and a...

I found this pad to be extremely comfortable (better than the bed I slept on through college), but it doesn't take much to get a chill through it. I bought a Gossamer Gear Thinlight pad for insulation...
