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: Another Sawyer Squeeze Question
If you leave the Squeeze on the water bottle while you're carrying it around, it puts more stress on the bottle and it might break. Maybe better to unscrew Squeeze and carry it seperately.

Re: heat retention
I think a reflective layer facing out will provide more warmth for it's weight than primaloft or even down. Also a lot less volume packed. I think that's a great emergency gear item in ca...
