My Locale Rocky Mtn. West
About Me An outdoors girl in Denver, CO. I have a love for skiing, snowshoeing and backpacking and want to venture into other mountain sports--backcountry skiing? I just took a winter camping course with the CMC last year. I have started to get back pain with a heavier load, so I want to lighten up and meet others in my area with the same mentality.

I'm new to HIT philosophies and I'm still trying to learn how that translates to backpacking. I need educating. :) Kevin- What is a hot tent??

Okay. I actually have one solid colored poly and one clear colored Lexan. I appreciate the clarification. Gotta log off now. Thanks for the help!

thanks for the post
I didn't realized the two were so close in weight. I bought a Synmat earlier this year, and now I want a downmat for winter camping. Maybe I should sell my synmat!

Received two REI gift cards! Trying to decide between a Exped Downmat or MSR Whisperlite Universal Stove for winter camping. Yeah!

another question..
Gary, do you know how I can tell if a hard sided Nalgene bottle is a Lexan bottle? I have a couple of hard sided already, and I don't know how to determine what kind of plastic they are made of.

After reading a bit, I think you have offered the perfect solution. Will try this MSR/Nalgene Lexan set-up this winter and report back!
