Comfy
+ 20 on a CCF pad as comfier than a z-lite. +80 if it's comparable to a 1" Thermarest. 25-30 years ago, we had a relatively comfy 3/4" thick white memory-foam-ish pad - that was sm...

z lite
I think the z lite might be comfy enough to give up my 1” thermarest. How well does it hold up? Does the foam &/or bumps pack down and loose comfort quickly? Do the hinges start to rip ...

humidity
Where I live, it's humid enough that Poly T-shirts and synthetic sleeping bags absorb moisture out of the air and feel damp if left under a tarp (to loft-up, etc) for more than 20-30 minutes du...

Tarp Size
I like a 10x10 tarp for solo use. It's so big, I can walk in/out at a crouch, dress in a kneeling position, and leave the edges 10-12" up off the ground even when the rain is coming down ...

My 10 year old kids have a hard time blowing hard enough to get a loud blast from the Fox 40 mini. The regular 40 requires about 2/3 the breath pressure. However I find the Acme Thunderer to need1...
