    I was not expecting a saturday delivery. So that was kinda a bonus early delivery.

    Anyway, it arrived this AM.

    Looks very warm. I can't wait to test it out (maybe next weekend).

    The green-macaw green combo looks great.

    I notice in your gear you have 2x tubes (I assume the red IRC bags are tubes).
