'Classic.' A book which people praise and don't read.” ― Mark Twain
Who cares about showers, gourmet food, using flush toilets. Just keep on walking and being away from it all.
There are times that the only way you can do something is to do it alone.
Yeah, with the sale it was about $140 shipped. I bought one.
Now I'm hoping it turns out to be a good purchase. You guys have me a little worried. I didn't need it as I was already using old sleeping bags in the hammock. It's just that it was much lighter. It's my first piece of down gear (aside from the WB yeti, which has only seen a few nights of use so far). I was never willing to go with down on the ground because you just never can predict what gear failure or unforseen act of god will cause you to get wet. Obviously that can happen in a hammock, but after the CRAZY storm I weathered in it my FIRST TIME OUT (read about it in my trip reporst), I'm quite a bit more confident taking down with me.
Yeah, I bought the Golite Ultra on that "ultra" sale and its been a solid purchase. I've only gone down to 35 with it, but that's with no underquilt. I don't know that I'd trust it by itself any lower than that, but I probably would if I had a nest or something under me. It ended up being a lot warmer than I thought it would be.
Well, judging by what other members told me, the last model had some problems with being understuffed and was not really good down to the rating. Apparently they have redesigned it. This all came from forum posters, not from the company, so it might only be worth what you paid for it.
