I'm going with my son on a high adventure scout trip to Colorado in late July. We'll be in 8000+ elevation (planning to summit a fourteener one of the days) for a week. I'm struggling to decide what bag/quilt to take for that time of year at that elevation. Our current bags are Big Agnes 20 degree synth bags that are bulky and heavy and take up too much room in my pack.
I'm very interested in Mac's threads about IX and its use as a TQ/bag. However, I don't have much experience with a thread injector.
I typically sleep pretty cold, and my son just sleeps like the dead. I swear that boy would sleep the same in 0 degree or 100 degree weather or through a nuclear explosion. Must be nice...
Anyway, any ideas on what temp rating I should go for or whether the IX option would be a good first diy thread injector attempt?
