My Locale John S. hasn't told us about their geographical region yet.
About Me Originally from Louisiana, I enjoyed camping in my Boy Scouting days and eventually became an Eagle Scout. Many years later (2002), I discovered backpacking after going on an REI multisport trip to Alaska. My first backpack was to Grand Canyon, and I was hooked!

Re: Weight of my Ultra 20 quilt
The nunatak arc alpinist is rated to 20 degrees F like the golite ultra, yet the arc weighs more. Is the golite bag rating overstated or is nunatak conservative on its rating?

Re: Cheap Pots!
They also make a 0.9 quart grease dispenser weighing ~3.8 oz with lid and costing 5 bucks. The lid fits the 10 cm cup too.
