I personally use a lightload towel folded over a few times to pick up my pot. Works great, multi use, and hilariously lightweight. Edit: that GSI microgripper does look really cool, though. It...

I wouldn't recommend it
I pushed a 45 degree bag into 5-10 degree temps with a LOT of layers, and it was hugely uncomfortable. I slept, but in very short stints while quite cold. I don't suggest doing it at all. You&#...

Bought in 2010 after I slid down a mountain with my original pack before discovering that Osprey has an amazing warranty. Sold one already here, and I don't really need this one either! Pict...

My system
I've been using a Stoic Wraith and an O2 hooded rain jacket. The rain jacket is similar to the driducks, 6.5oz and a bit more durable. More comfortable, too. And bright yellow! http://ww...
