PM sent on the UL 60. Although I am wary of a quilt, having never used one, I will take the quilt and experiment with it.

I reduced the price on the two remaining items. The new prices are firm though, if I can't sell them for that I'm going to keep them.

Thanks, John on 02/25/2009 14:18:35 MST Print View


Quilt got here today. Wow, 2 days from NH to CA.

Looks like it is in great shape, as you posted.

Thank you.

Net Tent arrived today....Thank you, this fits the bill perfectly. I recently bought a MLD Bug Bivy, and although the footprint is about the same, the MLD headroom and footroom is very restricting. Going to have to do some mods to get it to work for me. Thanks again. BTW I grew up in Maine...could see Mt Washington from our living room in the winter. If you're about my age and grew up in that area also, you may recall weather reports from Marty, from the top of Mt Washington?

Glad you guys are happy with the gear.

I like the Net Tent as well but decided mostly I would be using my tiGoat bivy plus I have my eye on a Nunatak Arc Specialist in 0.8 quantum which is too expensive for me without selling some of my current gear.

I spent a lot of time ice climbing up in the Ravine, mostly in the 90's, so I've gotten a lot of weather reports from the summit but mostly I've read them posted at Pinkham or Harvard Cabin. I don't recall a Marty but my memory is terrible lolz....

Arc Specialist on 02/25/2009 20:45:40 MST Print View


That is precisely why I bought the quilt. I saw the Specialist at 16 oz and thought... hmmm, that is pretty light. So if I like sleeping in a quilt, then I will get a Nanatak, and re-sell the one I bought. But no way am I going to spend $400 on something I am not even sure I would be able to use.

I am going to try the quilt this weekend with a bivy. We shall see. Do you know what the rated temp is for the UL60? I am thinking around 50-60 F.

re: ul60 temp on 02/25/2009 20:59:56 MST Print View

I'm not sure what BPL says but I used it down to 40 degrees with my micropuff and a balaclava. I sleep pretty warm though.

Regarding the Specialist - ya that's a lot of money. I believe it will be a true 3-season quilt though and even extend into the shoulder seasons with extra insulation so for me it's basically replacing 2 quilts/bags.

The Specialist should have a lot more room than the UL60 also, so if it feels a bit constricting to you I think when you trade up to the Specialist you will be more comfortable.

It's kind of funny, my experience using the UL60 gave me the confidence to use quilts and it seems now you're using it for the same thing. Nice!

Adrenaline 40 on 04/14/2009 22:14:35 MDT Print View


Do you still have the Adrenaline 40?
How did this bag perform for you? Is it true to its rating? How low did you take it with additional clothing?

Hi Patrick,

Yes, I still have the Adrenaline 40.

I used it comfortably down to about 35 degrees wearing Pat capiline 3 underwear. I would push it to probably 30 degrees with my UL Down Liner. However, I sleep warm so YMMV.

I like the bag, I just want to get a Nunatak quilt to save some weight.

I'm not sure if you've read about the bag, but it's a half-zip and the zipper goes down the center of the chest. Some people like this zipper style and some don't.

Let me know if you have any more questions.
