    Do you have any scraps from old tents, tarps, or footprints that you could fashion into a floor? You could add grommets as needed, or maybe even throw it into the sewing machine and do buttonholes...

    Thanks - yeah, I could probably fit a lot more in there if I put my alcohol stove in it, instead.

    Same here - down puffy is a great pillow to use atop other clothes/items in a sack. I wonder how it would be as a "topper" to an inflatable pillow. Side sleeping requires higher pillow height for me....

    From what I read, the latter is definitely the case. But I don't think it's one of those deals where a well-known maker has some private label business. I think those walmart poles are pretty heavy...
