Steven - you're already asking for gear reviews from a 5-week-old baby? I don't know if he's prepared to contribute, though I'd have to ask the power that be if he has to buy his own BPL membership first.
Based on his great sleep, I would say he gives the Neo Air two thumbs up, along with our Golite quilt and the Double Rainbow. He sure seemed comfortable hanging out on the Montbell pillow. If Exped wants to send us a pillow to test and compare, we'd be happy to do so!
His polar bear outfit got rave reviews from every single hiker that saw it. Maybe it wasn't ultra light, but it was ultra cute.
Our first backpacking trip was actually pretty easy, because we didn't have to bring any baby food or too much extra stuff - some diapers, baby wipes, extra onsies, and an extra foam sit pad. I used a Moby Wrap on the way in, and Kristin had the Baby Bjorn for the way out, and he slept both ways.
The big thing, of course, was that we had light packs to begin with, and we are very comfortable with our current setup.
Thanks everybody for the kind notes and good wishes. We hope to make it to the next GGG Ken - keep them coming! You are doing a great service to the BPL community and should be given an ultralight award for it.
