Re: Gear Test Results last night in -5ºF
You seem to be hardier than me. Or, conversly, I'm more of a wuss. I was out in the Adorondaks two weeks ago when it got down to 7F at night, with substantial wind on the second night. I was...

Re: Stephenson's Warmlite Tents
I have an old 2R tent, made well before they switched to Silnylon or the son took over. It's around 3 pounds 5 ounces for a solid four season tent with 40 sq. ft. of space. Note that the tent...

Re: Cold weather sleep system
I tend to bring enough bag for the expected low temperature, and rely of any personal insulation like a down parka for when the weatherguessers screw up and underestimate how low it will really be....

Re: Gloves??
I've settled on the lighter pair of mitts from RBH Designs, with either a light or medium weight liner glove. They're really light, but so far I haven't been out in cold enough weather...

Re: Soft-Shells for Cold Weather Hiking?
I use one as my main shell for winter backpacking anytime I expect below freezing weather. It blocks most of the wind while still breathing well, and will shed any snow that falls. Better under t...

Re: help with down sleeping bag
What about a Big Agnes bag with a built-in pad pocket? Solves the issue of rolling off your pad.

Re: Your fav solo winter backpacking tent?
I have an old Warmlight 2R tent I like. While it's a 2 man tent with something like 40 sq. ft. of space, it only tips the scales at around 3 pounds 5 ounces. Actually, my current solo winte...

Re: Nothing new
Mostly. I've found that they don't have enough pressure to fully inflate a pad, so you still need to top it off, but it does get it most of the way.

Re: Mike
I tried various iterations with my Trek, including bonding stays to a stiffer CCF pad in the pad pocket. Eventually gave up and got a real pack.

Montbell Super Stretch Down Hugger #3
I've had my 30F #3 bag down to 12F on a winter camping trip, wearing a mid-weight synthetic parka and pants, under a tarp and bivy combination. I was comfortable up to the 12F temps, although I w...

Big Sky International
I ordered a tent about mid-December of last year also, and would be stunned at this point if it ever showed up. I suspect that you'll never get a refund simply because Big Sky doesn't have it - the f...
