    REI would probably exchange your pad for a different model if you choose and they've just dropped their prices on a bunch of their pads, the Big Agnes Q Core is one of them. I saved $50 on a BA Q...

    Thanks! I tried a regular Big Agnes Q Core (72x20) last night and used an REI Sitpad for a pillow so that the pad held the fabric off my head and found it worked well. Will be trying the Big Agnes Q...

    I'm 5'11", and am trying to figure out how to keep the BN off my head. The EXPED Ergo Combi is reputed to work for tall folk, it may be an option for you. I hope they release a light weight version...

    When you buy your tentstile, you should call Paul & Missy for a custom quilt for it to keep you good and warm. Wonder what a good 0* quilt would cost for that?

    You should be fine with either the Q Core or the Q Core SL. I was fine on the SL last night, I may consider a small foam pad under my shoulders to smooth out the peaks of the pad. I found that with...

    Interesting solution. I always figured if the rope would hole me it could hold the excess, I coil or figure 8 it and let it hang. And that save me .5 ounces and all that bulk!

    Chair height, sitting comfortably changing shoes and fiddling with a stove are priorities for me. Also find the rule don't hang higher than you want to fall.
