Hi all, this is my first thread. Thanks for such a great resource.
I've been getting back into backpacking for the first time since boy scouts, and I've tried to save for top gear.
My question is this: I'm using a WM Summerlite for sleeping and Montbell Down Inner Jacket and Pants for insulation. Is this too much down?
I've read how many of you use a down bag and synthetic insulation for safety, so I'm wondering if I've gone too much toward the feather. Synthetic stuff is appealing to me, but I'm worried about longevity (can I really only expect a couple of years out of occasionally used Primaloft, for instance?)
For the 3 season (mostly) New England hiking I'll be doing (with an AT trip in the next couple of years), do I need to pickup a synthetic puffy and pants or am I fine with what I've got?
Thanks for your help.
