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: I made a synthetic quilt (1st sewing project ever)
Nice job! I think it should be good at 30 F if you wear down jacket inside. I've worn similar colder than that.

Re: Patterns...
I made a pretty basic jacket. Described in http://www.backpackinglight.com/cgi-bin/backpackinglight/myog_event_jacket.html. Including the pattern. I think you have to be a member to look at that...

Upright canister in cold weather
It was 29F. Using a 1/8th full canister, it slowly fizzled out before it heated a cup of water. Switched to a full canister and it worked fine. Put this on the 1/8th full canister: ...

Re: what is your preferred type of shelter?

Re: Need one more estimate on a quilt rating
Maybe Richard's numbers are a little conservative. I have slept many nights in a vest and bag with almost 5 clo down to 35F. Another thing - if you're talking 6 F you probably need ...
