My Locale Wet & Humid Southeast....
About Me My stomping grounds are the SE US, and 90% of the time, somewhere on the AT in GA, TN, or NC. Other times I enjoy going to the Smokies, or other smaller wilderness areas such as the Savage Gulf area.
Most of my trips are between 2 - 5 days long, with rare 7 day long trips. My total pack weights are generally under 20 lbs, unless trying new gear, or carrying extra for the kids. In the dead of summer, I enjoy SUL hikes, and have given thought to XUL (almost there...)

Re: Re: Re: Thinlight pad weight and other supplier
David, IME, I found that I am warmer if the ccf pad is on top of an air pad. Saying that, I carry the 1/8" pad in the colder months, and use it where I need it depending on the situation. I...

Re: Thinlight pad weight and other supplier

MLD Bug Bivy & Mids
Tony, it looks like others beat me to it! Yes, as others mentioned, getting in and out is quite easy, easier than regular bivies IMO. No slithering... Just unclip the head end from the tarp, sit do...

Re: Pushing a Sleep System Further - Top vs Bottom
My opinion... The pad. If your bag is truly rated to 20 F, then replace, or better yet, supplement your pad with a ccf pad, even just a 1/8" pad. You can use extra clothes to add insulatio...

Re: Why I don't like the bug bivy route...
>>>"wouldn't it be great if the netting to this bivy were sewn to the edges of my tarp? It would give me a lot more room AND probably be lighter than the combo." I agree.....

Re: mld
Joslyn, I would say the (standard size) Borah bivy might have a slightly wider floor, but I don't have the MLD bivy to actually compare it too any longer. With a 20" wide pad, there were a...
