My Locale Sunshine State
About Me I am 18 years old an an avid hiker who just recently converted to the ultralight way of thinking. I hate that I live about 8 hours away from my favorite national park-Great Smoky Mountains National park. I love backpacking with my friends and family and am looking forward to what the future may bring.

That is beautiful. I have seen snow on the ground before, maybe an inch or two, but I have never had it snow on me before.

Gossamer Gear Nightlight Torso
If weight comes before longevity, this may be the one for you. It is a good length for me (6 feet) if I place it from my shoulder to my lower back. It durability is definitley limited.

it is one of the lightest full covering mummies available. It is very soft, light, and compressable. I like its weight a lot too, just 20.5 oz for a large size. It is a great sleeping bag.
