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: How warm can you take your 20F quilt?
Can you list the specs for each, arc alpinist and ultra? The ultra specs may be close, but I doubt they can be the same since the ultra uses heavier fabric at least at the foot. Also, I wonder what...
