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: Re: Re: Re: Re: Jerry's baffle
yes, just use H, multiply by 1.3 for overstuff. That's the same as if you used conventional box baffles. I don't think there's any max limit to down bag. Make it as big as you want...

Re: Tom from Car Talk
Two years ago they said they were retiring, but they just kept going. I assumed they just changed their mind. Now I know the rest of the story. The last two years they've been doing re-run...

Re: Jerry's baffle
just looking at my 2 inch baffle/1 inch loft test piece, and 4 inch baffle/2 inch loft bag, the top flattens, not the sides: Maybe you have 5% less cross sectional area. I just ignored it -...
