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.

before your trip, sleep in a cold room with minimal covers, take cold showers,... then, when you do trip, you'll need less insulation - for comfort or to prevent hypothermia

Re: alternative to the French seam with momentum 90?
sew the seam with the raw edges inside. Maybe 1/2 inch seam allowance then, inside, fold over twice and run a row of stitches. That will bury the raw edges. I made something with M50 and th...
