    6 months will put me in early January. I am figuring it will take me 5-5.5 months, but I saved enough for 7. I should be a month away from finishing close to Thanksgiving. I'll send you my pocketmail address when I get it up later this week.

    Should also mention that if you get one of the JRBs with a head hole, you can wear it in camp as insulation so you save the pack weight of a jacket. So while the "insulation system" isn't much lighter, your pack can be about a pound lighter.

    That's why I carry the No Sniveler on every trip, no matter what else I'm using for insulation.

    if you put that pea pod on top of a no sniveler, you'd be ready for anything

    True statement. Personally, I find the PeaPod too big and cumbersome to wear as a robe. Just my opinion, obviously. I can wear the NS around camp, usually under my rain jacket, and not worry much about snagging it on a branch or spilling food on it. The PeaPod is pretty big, so doing more than lounging around in it doesn't fit my style.

    Not knocking the PeaPod at all - I think it's a great product and I still take it on some of my trips. I just don't wear it.

    I like the Peapod too, I just wish the thing wasn't so doggone expensive so I could afford one, or maybe a Snugfit.
