I have been a R&R packer for a long time and in the last few years have been refining my gear to an ultra light system. This year I plan to have a base load of 6 to 8 Lbs. with fishing gear. I am looking at buying the WM Ultralight bag and using the Montbel UL Bivy (Gore II) or the Bozeman Quantum Bivy. Of course I will carry a tarp, but in the Sierra Nevada Mountains it usually is very dry. Is the Gore just overkill? Is the bag the best for me?
Last year I carried a A16 Bug Bivy, Tyvek 5x7, and sleeped in my Moonstone Lucid 800 and was fine. It did sprinkle a few times, but I just used the shelter of the Tyvek.
Please give me some feedback.
