    New 20* Phoenix

    Received my 3/4 Phoenix yesterday. Excellent attention to detail. Hoping to test it out tonight. Will be a good test, as the forecast is for rain and a low in the high 30s. Thanks, Jen and Adam!

    I am getting ready to order a Phoenix. What are you going to be using to insulate your legs?

    You can use a small pad underneath your feet and you'll be fine. There are many different options, Gossamer Gear, Therm-a-rest, etc.

    You can't go wrong with Phoenix, HG makes awesome gear!

    Besides a pad you can also use your pack underneath your legs as well.
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    I'm using a piece of 1/4" ccf. Using a pack is a no go for me. I'm a canoeist and the pack is usually wet on the bottom (and soaked totally if it's raining). The pad I'm using can also double as a sit pad.

    I've been trying to decide between a Pheonix or an Incubator and I think a Pheonix may do well for me because of how many other things I can use a pad for. It seems that it may be worth the trade off to carry the pad as well and multi-use it.

    I agree. As long as you don't have to take an entire pad. Even rolled up in my pack for a barrel frame to toss all your gear in, just doesn't feel the way I want.

    I'd much rather prefer an UQ and a CCF foot pad. A piece of pad, just always turns up handy. Packs like mine, the Golite Pinnacle, you can replace the small foam back pad insert, with a similar sized piece of CCF. It gives you a thicker back pad, and will not become waterlogged and lose it's rigidity like the original insert, at a fairly insignificant weight penalty.

    A little small as a sit pad for all but the minimalists, but generous enough for a foot box or killing off a case of CBS, on a cold night.
