    Winter Yeti

    Has anyone used the Winter Yeti? How well is it working for you during this winter cold spell?

    i made the mistake of using the winter yeti with the reflective liner... when it wasn't winter.

    its a very lightweight, packable piece of gear. the one i used was very very puffy and extremely warm. the only relief i got from using it was the fact that it kept falling off my left shoulder and it vented it.

    I think the folks in the mid-west and east have definitely had opportunity to test the winter Yeti and others at new lows, during this impressive cold couple of weeks we just had. I know I was busy trying to test every thing I had while the cold temps lasted.

    There should be some new info and opinions available. But, not from me for the Winter Yeti as I don't have that particular UQ, sadly.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    Thanks. I will be receiving a winter Yeti sometime next week. I plan on using it in the Adirondack mountains this winter. I just was interested in learning more about its capabilities.

    Heck, I didn't search tags...that is from a simple "Winter Yeti" post search.
    It is amazing the amount of info archived here!
