    I like the contoured part around the neck/shoulders. Got me thinking how even more, like a hood around the top part would be nice in the winter without going full mummy bag.

    Something like the Sierra Madre Inferno. https://sierramadreresearch.com/prod...erno-top-quilt

    I have a Caribou bag I bought in 1989 that might have been the same company if they keep bag names over the years. I've taken it all over the Western third of the US and Alaska and it's still going strong. Back in the day it had the softest inner layer I'd ever felt. I believe it is a synthetic 40 degree bag. Slept on snow with it in the north cascades, that definitely wasn't it's happy place (or mine). It was the first bag I ever had that wasn't from JC Penny's.

    Now I'll have to check the bag to see if it's the same company...

    Edit: checked when I got home and my bag was actually from Caribou Mountaineering. Their webpage was updated in 1995.

    I use a WM Alpinlite for my pod system. Bought the bag in my ground days.
    Always loved that their zippers seldom got hung up on egress.

    I've had a faithful WM Antelope for over 15 years, after I reluctantly converted from synthetic bags. Also had a Megalite L, but sold it because I didn't like heating the extra space and the extra bulk/weight. So roomy it might have worked for a pod. Also have a couple of Feathered Friends summer/fall bags which also are USA made and nice quality bags.

    Shug, you might give a vapor barrier system to keep your mukluk liners dry and pliable. I've used plastic bags inside plastic telemark books with liners for extended back country ski touring. the VB keeps the liners dry and my feet warm, albeit sweat wet. Fantastic looking wool cagoule you are wearing.

    They do indeed make some nice gear. I have a couple of FF garments, a Helios down vest & companion Helios down jacket. Good stuff.

    FF also has their Flicker line of quilts that look like they'd do the job too.

    FF store is a hoot to be in. Lush down everywhere.
    I collect vintage camp stoves.
    I roast coffee at home.

    I would agree and add that I also have a FF Volante jacket for the bitter cold times (in Bozeman, but not so much here in the Bitterroot banana belt ;-) ). Being the tinkerer I purchased a Rab Glacier Guide, a WM parka, and the FF. I compared them and found the Rab and FF better quality, much to my surprise and dismay. In the end I passed along both the WM and Rab on ebay and kept the FF.

    Ironic this topic came up.
    Second Gear in Asheville, NC has a FF sleeping bag 250.00 minus 40% = 150.00
    A huge down bag in what looked like excellent condition.
    I kept looking at it and had to leave. I have too many already. Really, I do.

    Wow that would have been very tempting. What rating was it?

    I did not look long enough to be tempted.
