Companion forum thread to:Notes from the Field - SuperUltraLight in November on the Flagstaff Peaks, Arizona
I'd just like to point out that the No Sniveller is not sewn through, it's baffled. I enjoyed your article.
Stephan good call Jacks ‘R’ Better No Sniveller Quilt is a Box Baffle Design that uses no-see-um netting and 800+ fill power down.
Thanks Stephan,Yep, it's baffled. I must have had visions of sugar plums dancing through my head when I wrote that :)Carol
Carol, where can a person find the Outdoor Research rain mitts (1.4oz) you listed in your gear list? I can not find them on their website and am in need of light weight rain mitts.Thanks.
OR rain mitts haven't been made for a couple of years. See http://www.ryanjordan.com/weblog/2005/11/the_death_of_ra.htmlOne other option until BMW releases there new mitts are the somewhat expensive trekmate paclite rain mitts from the UK: http://www.backpackinglight.co.uk/product75.asp
Dave at Oware makes an over mitt that should work.http://www.owareusa.com/index.html
sounds nice, but you need to order in quantities of 20 or more! I don't have that many hands ;)
I own the new OR Talus Mitts and can say they're nice. It's not GTX but Ventia, OR's proporietary Waterproof/Breathable material. They well on 2.8oz in sime M. It's just simple shell
another interesting option are the berghaus paclite mittshttp://www.globetrotter.de/de/shop/detail.php?mod_nr=be_47453>ID=47abc4268415145d2d217be371e7e25e
