My Locale Wet & Humid Southeast....
About Me I have been backpacking a little over 3 years now, but in that time I have logged a number of trail miles and went through a lot of gear trying to find my sweet spot. Now, thanks to cuben fiber, alcohol stoves, down and of course a better understanding, my TPW has severly dropped! My cold weather BPW is 9 - 10 lbs and my warm weather BPW is 5 - 6 lbs.
About 95% of the time I hike with family or friends and in the SouthEastern states. My favorites places to get away are anywhere along the AT as well as in the Great Smoky Mountains.

Re: HammockGear Burrow 20* quilt - initial review/impressions
Nice looking quilt, thanks for sharing! I have a TQ & an UQ from them, and had another UQ from them, purchased about 2 years or so ago, but it got sent back. I agree, the quality is nice, ho...

Re: NeoAir noise?
Read this thread... and you will still not have an answer one way or another... As far as the noise is concerned, it's just like the pad... it varies from user to user...

coloring tent stakes
The few that I have used that were painted, either by me, or from the company, never lasted long at all... The best thing that I have found is to anodize them. It can be done pretty easily with som...

Re: cuben tarp
Yeah Duane, there really is a pretty large amount of room in it, and that is with all 3 edges pinned right down to the ground (which of course decreases air flow). I do have my second pole pulling ...

Re: NeoAir Noise
Yep... the moment you go to sleep the noise disappears! As for others noticing it, that is true, however, to be fair, there has been a number of nights in which I laid in a shelter, or even in ...

Re: Prolite 2 - Neo Air 2 - REI Flash honorable mention!
I have a small PL3 that I use in warmer months, and a large XLite that I use in colder months. I sleep like a baby on either, it's just that I don't need that much pad in the summer. My PL3...

Minimus Smock for me...
I have the Minimus Smock, and the few times I have used it I have been happy with it, although, to be fair, this has not been often. Maybe twice in good rains, and a few other times in wet weather....

Re: Polycryo/Tyvek/Cuben
Yep, you are correct. On the 3rd or 4th night of my Olympic NP hike last September, the weight of me on my pad must have rubbed the cuben floor on my new Hexanet against a (somewhat smooth) rock th...
