    0 degree phoenix delivered today!

    Was napping on the couch a little while ago & heard a mail truck pull out of my driveway!

    Woooohooooo a pretty zero degree phoenix w/ black outer shell has been added to my gear closet. right next to a 3 season burrow. Amazing quality work!

    I can't wait to give it a test it in cold weather. being I am 62.5" tall & this is 53" i'm thinking this should be a good fit for me.

    I would be out in the woods in my backyard right now giving it a test hang but mucinex, hot tea & water has been my diet today.

    Will take pics sometime this week when I feel good enough to do a backyard test.

    Hope you feel better soon. Does the urge to get out and use your new gear help the healing process?

    I know the feeling, I'm a little under the weather myself. Congrats on your new gear. Hopefully in a few weeks, I'll have some new HG in my mitts.

    Pic added

    EastCoastFeastCoast Here's the best pic I can do for now.
    the green & black hanging is the phoenix, next to green burrow, with 3 season yeti under the pile too. Thats one warm closet!

    Peanuts, had gear packed & ready to go. Was sneezing last night but when woke up at 0500 this morning it went into my chest & sore throat. I did not move from the couch much today.

    Joey - I hope between wanting to get out & the nice weather we been having will clear this cold up faster!

    double 1.1 will provide you maximum support and comfort.

    I set up the phoenix on a traveler this morning for about 10 mins. took less than 5 mins to hang them both up. Easy setup - the UQ throws off some nice warmth.

    If I put my shoulder right at the top of the UQ - my feet don't go past the bottom. so I prob won't need a footpad with this UQ!
