Sorry I totally missed the weight! My bad.
What's it weigh?
This looks very nice!
it probably goes without saying, but seal it while under tension. Sorry if I'm stating the obvious.
Their BRS 3000 stove is the steal of the century - no kidding. I have two.
Close your your size and I love the long/wide.
Something to think about: if you sleep only on your back then you can get by with a narrower TQ. If you sleep on the ground too, then the the above...
Is fabric wear (from the pole rubbing the ridge) not a concern? I like the mod.
looks like an Elephant Trunk w/one less slot for the webbing
Piss on the cat. Call it a day.
SOLD! Thank you.
Brand new, with tags attached, never used. LOADED w/convenience features. I love it but it doesn't fit me :( Great overnighter or daypack, and the removable framesheet is a nice...
Gotta love the Ogee! Nice job.
Welcome from Tally!
If he made it comfortably into the 30's w/o significant other insulation - he's a MAN!!! Around 50° is what most get comfortably down to.
That bit aside, good job on your new insulation!
I'll take it
Yes, it's too small to be hung in that config.
Yes, it would help to lower it.
Hang it asym, perhaps? Add doors?
I also noticed the nice seal of the UQ.
Great colors, sweet setup!
They send a urethane adhesive w/patch kits so try that
There is no good fix that I am aware of.
Cascade Designs has superior warranty coverage. Had it not been caused by heat, sun, etc I bet they would have replaced it.
I'll take the Minimalist.
While we're on this: I am subscribed to several threads w/"instant" email notification, but have NEVER EVER EVER received notification.
Add a polycryo groundsheet and no worries whatsoever.
It's gonna be heavy. Combo of down and synthetic insulation may/may not be beneficial. I'm not trying to rain on your parade! Just throwing it out there.
Aerogel was in some POE sleeping pads - HEAVY for the R-value!
It's the mummy style. To my knowledge they didn't make this warmest model in a rectangular version.
Like the title says. Can't hardly find 'em in this size anymore. Only set up once in back yard, in a shelter + polycryo.
I think I still have the box too.

Clothing: Montbell Ex Light Down Anorak
It weighs NOTHING! It has what I like about my (older model - no pocket zips or drawstrings other than my waist drawstring mod) UL Down Inner parka but...
If I come across one of those ladies collecting dust...I'll PM you!
I wish you the best in your new endeavor. How long are the buries in your whoopies and loops?
I started with a pad.
I gotta say that the only way I could EVER find pads more comfortable if I somehow became a mummy-style sleeper - taped up and never moved during the night. Moving around...
Well I was using this old chart so that's why I thought it was long enough!
(It won't let me copy & paste) but it said 5.79" for Dynaglide whoopies. Mine is actually 6" upon measuring.
I've used whoopies and UCR's for quite awhile (never made my own, however).
Well I have an unused set (that I picked up from another HF'er who made them) made from dynaglide. Just now I went...
I'll take it:
4)Grand Trunk Ultralight with orange dynaglide whoopies and lightweight poly straps and carbon toggles. Ready to hang.
Red and florescent orange are popular choices (I have orange), but blue, surprising to me, shows up best in most leaf litter, etc., in my experience. Green grass may need the orange.
Unless you're doing deep cold hikes, the neoair should be fine. Which model do you use? There are different R-value versions, with the XTherm being the warmest.
I've happily used neo air pads on...
Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeew! Won't be buying a quilt or clothing from you guys on the gear swap!
This wasn't nice of you.
To limit down compression, keep the down outside.
Where synthetic needs to be outside is for moisture management.
You weren't wrong - Florida is VERY humid. I have just found that with proper care on shorter trips in high humidity, that I haven't had problems. I sure am jealous of those in...
I haven't needed treated down in all my years backpacking. I might need it on long trips in very wet conditions though.
I haven't had problems drying regular down though. With a little care it...
After years of using quilts, I prefer longitudinal (length-wise) chambers to horizontal. Horizontal always has led to down falling to the sides - gravity ALWAYS wins eventually in life! Love my EE...
I don't get how it reduces perspiration - those of you with experience, can you please explain?
I shake mine too. But only twice, I SWEAR!!!!!!! :lol:
I use a JRB (think horizontal chambers) so I shake the down towards the center where I need it most.
Congratulations! I'm so happy for both of you.
Love her more than you want to be loved. That's all I got.
You done goooooood!
Love the box, too.
I still don't get how he makes pee bags from it. Somebody please figure out how he does it!!!!!
