    Interested as well. I'm 240# and while I'm unconcerned my RR will hold me, about 4" more elbow room at the cat cut would make a much more comfortable sleep for me.

    Many years of camping in the PNW. Synthetics have saved my butt many times. That said, I love my down bags for winter but tend not to use them unless in the teens or colder. YMMV

    White water throw bag rope? Pulk tow/trailing line? Snow shoe lacing? Bear bag throw/hoist line? (though I think dyna-glide -what many arborists use - might be slicker/cheaper.)
