    Great tip. I've had a few nights in the BWCA that would have been miserable if it weren't for the nalgene of just-boiled water to snuggle with. I am amazed at how warm they stay through sunrise.

    Insultex is OK, but there is no miracle UQ material. You can cope with a basic foam UQ until a proper UQ is within your budget.

    Agreed. I used two bowlines with small loops and added a worthy biner that was only about 2 inches in length and believe I either broke even or lost an inch at most. Has worked well in testing but...

    Hey all,
