My Locale South Australia
About Me Into Bushwalking in remote areas in Australia. Have completed alot of walks in Southern Australia, especially in the Flinders Ranges, but also some decent trips in Victoria, Tasmania, and Central Australia.

I also spend a lot of time in the field for work (arid areas) and am an avid Scouter!

Oh yeah, and I'm into cycling and photography too.

Re: Re: Emissivity of alumized Cuben, Silnylon
This is fascinating Jerry! What are the weights of the reflective cuben, silnylon and foil? 21F difference for adding foil is quite significant. In a vapor barrier sleeping system it could be...

Pyramid
Faced with the same scenario (wife very interested in doing more bushwalking with me, and we have a 15month old daughter, planning for another), I've ordered a 4 person mid (a 9x9) from oware, ...

Synthetic?
Another option, if you don't think you'll use a 20degree quilt much, is to shoot for a synthetic quilt and save more dough. Sure, your weight goes up, but its only for this hike, and its no...

Re: Got a tarp - Need a bivy
