    that's crazy, the coldest place on Earth. I like the snorkel through the jacket idea, that could help in the hammock for when it's too cold to breathe comfortably...

    So I checked my calculator. I think you would need something like 10 inches of loft if you were using down.

    Good luck. Their ratings are WAY off on their bags. My buddy just picked up the -20/-60 combo. He froze in the -20 bag at +20 and he's a super warm sleeper.

    Just added another thing to my list I don't want to do

    Mt Everest summit is first, base camp at lower elevations I would do though

    -135F is second, though I wouldn't mind visiting either pole, just not outside at those temps

    Pretty short list so far

    It's not to arrive safely at the grave in a well preserved body,
    But rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting,
    Woo Hoo!....What a Ride!
