What I see is the front 1/4 of the 'Mid getting soaked.
"What I see is the front 1/4 of the 'Mid getting soaked" So what? There's enough room for 2 in there even if that happens. I do use a bivy though, not a full insect mesh inne...

No worries with the mid
I have a GoLite Hex 3 and because of its size, getting in and out of heavy rain has certainly not been a big deal. The DuoMid is a lot smaller, I wouldn't want that for 2 in lots of rain. I can...

Help with O2 Rainwear sizing
I usually wear a medium eg IceBreaker or Smartwool base layers but prefer a large size for a rain jacket so its nice and loose. For instance a Marmot Precip really needs to be a large for me. Is...

Brian's pad
Hey Brian, What kind of pad do you sleep on? If my Neo Air would fit in my bivy I would stick with things. It alone is driving the change! I just sent this email to Titanium Goat: "I ...

Not the Nallo

Therm-a-Rest Neoair
I am a side sleeper and have used the Prolite 3 and normally a 3/4 length Prolite 4 but find the NeoAir to be far more comfortable. If you blow up the NeoAir on a warm sunny day you will find that ...

Titanuium Goat Ptarmigan Bivy
Likes - I have the version with the mesh/fabric hood and use the bivy with the mesh over my face 99% of the time. This is much more comfortable and less claustrophobic than momentum fabric over my ...

Stephenson 2R
It won’t fall down, it withstands high wind but there are too many usability issues with this tent to make it easy to use. Perhaps 10 years ago these tents were ahead of their time. Now they are n...

I like the design of this pack but have issues over the quality and durability. On its second use, and with no real loads and no bush whacking, the mesh separated from its elastic on one of the sid...

Pros: Lots of loft for the 400 grams of total weight. More than a WM Highlight for instance. Cons: Too narrow. Way too narrow to sleep in for me and I like sleeping bags people normally say are too...
