Re: Re: MYOG Down Jacket with Box Baffles.
I've made 13 quilts, 2 other jackets, a wind breaker and 2 insulated pants. No way am I going to make another down jacket. I just used the argon for the baffles. The hood is what came ou...

MYOG Down Jacket with Box Baffles.
Okay, just finished my down jacket. Fabric is Argon 10D with over 5 ounces of down and has a 1 1/4" box construction baffle in the main body. I wanted a jacket that I could take out in t...

Re: not a bad start for voting
You know what I would like to see even more than a consensus about what weight is UL and SUL should be, is to stop using UL in gear that would not make an UL kit. 3 1/2 pound tent, 2 1/2 pound b...

Re: Re: Re: Re: nobul2
Almost done with the jacket. I will post some pictures when done. The box construction is so warm with all that down. Uniformity is so nice as well. Not sure of the weight. I couldn'...

Re: Not Quite
When are we ever going to go metric? We're about the only fools to use pounds, so really it should be metric. I wish it was 5 Kilos for UL. It would get a lot more people wanting to get down...

Re: SUL? Not for long trips.
James, I think you are looking at what SUL completely wrong. It is not a 1# pack, 1# bag and 1# of shelter (all within a couple ounces). This is nowhere near what it takes to go SUl. Every ...

Re: SUL
I almost never go UL. 85% of the time it's SUL. Leave the stove at home, use an 1/8" pad, and don't bring any text gadgets or extra clothes. It's hare to go over 5 pounds wh...

Re: Re: Re: nobul2
I got my Argon fabric in. Argon is awsome fabric. I'm going for a box construction instead of sewn-thru. I figured with the 4.5-5 ounces I'm going to put in, a 1 1/4" baffle would...

Re: Rae Lakes from the East side
3 days is doable. If I were you, I would hike up to the flat spot that's about 600' below Glen Pass. You can get to the pass from there in about 30 minutes. There is nowhere to camp ...

Fenix L2D-CE
Everything else is just a light. For its weight, its 2-40 times brighter and lasts 5-10 time longer. Now they just need to make a 3AAA headlamp with a 5/15/35 lumens setting. The only problem...
