    You can get anything you want but I think after 2-3oz you are at the point of diminishing returns as the baffles prevent that much down from lofting properly. While I got the extra 2oz to boost the...

    Western Mountaineering make some of the best bags out there that are generally true to rating but I would also get overstuff more to stop down shift than anything else.

    As a woman (and neither of those above are) I'd go for a 0* bag if you are actually planning to go down to 15*.

    I am also a very cold-blooded woman and have a 10* to go to mid 20s. I won't use a...

    I linked to a couple of videos at the end...the second one, the guy also made a brilliant video about the Cape Wrath Trail, and the Skye Trail.
  6. Backpacking Scotland's West Highland Way

    This trail was top of my list to do after I moved back to the UK from the US. I knew Scotland was one of the few places that rivaled the stunning places I had experienced in Wyoming, Utah and...

    Silpoly is hydrophobic which means it repels/doesn't absorb water like nylon does, and thus not a huge surprise to see a taught tent still

    Since I prefer uninterrupted sleep, I always put the tent/fly up. If I decide it's not necessary I'd be cowboy camping

    Exped or the newer Sea to Summit Etherlight in wide long. Super comfortable and very supportive. I liked the one I bought but sadly I was sold a demo/pro example with a fault in it (leaked)...I've...

    When I first bought the Arc Haul I'd read this too. I tie off the ends with a half hitch or two. I've never had any issues with slippage. A knot on each side makes the difference.

    I'm trying to decide how serious most of this discussion actually is.

    But the only bear I've seen while hiking was one that came within 100yards of camp...and I had dogs with me. He paid...

    Bear in mind camping in the UK is illegal except in Scotland and on Dartmoor. It still happens and it is accepted but arrive and set-up late and leave early and bear in mind that it is all...

    I bought this. Was leaking air within three nights of use. I may have bought a dud (it was labelled "pro deal only, not for resale"). It was warm and cushy though but I'm returning it and going back...

    While it is listed as wide as the Duplex it didn't feel as wide. But it did fit the pads the same. I think it will be tight. For me it's myself (petite lady with two very spread-out dogs)

    Tough call...I can't think of one, but other may chime in. Under $100 and down to 30* while still being that kind of size...doubtful unless you can find something gently-used/2nd hand

    Less storms, hopefully. The temperatures were pretty perfect though.

    And I appreciate the feedback on my trip report...never sure how many people actually read them.
