My Locale Oregon and Washington
About Me I started hiking about 45 years ago. My first backpack was 40 years ago. I currently try to do one backpack trip of 5 nights every month (which can be tricky in the winter) 20 to 50 miles. Mostly I stay around Mount Hood, Columbia Gorge, Mount Adams, Goat Rocks, and the Olympic Peninsula. In recent years I have shifted to lightweight - my pack weight without food and water is about 15 lb (7 kg). I make a lot of my own gear - silnylon tarp-tent, bivy, synthetic bag, simple bag style pack. My sleeping pad is a Therm-a-Rest air mattress.

Re: Handling down
You need good scale to measure - 0.01 oz or 0.1 g resolution. Probably 0.1 oz or 1 g would work. Turn off fans. Breath very slowly. Move your hands slowly. Measure down in a container. Gr...

Yeah - I think plastic is excellent for prototyping before making it in silnylon or cuben

Re: Jerry, Confession does not equate guilt
I think that after 9/11 we're justified in taking Bin Laden into custody, because he publically took credit and there was other evidence so he's just not saying crazy things. Maybe he was ...

Re: overstuffing down
I quickly looked at some of your calculations and I think they're right on. Theoretically, un-definitively, if you overstuffed 20% rather than your 35% to 40% you'de have more warmth per...
