    Nice! Thanks man. I assume this works on all items right? Right now I'm having a weird obsession with umbrellas, haha. Glad I didn't order one yesterday.

    Shane, I have the 1 season and the 3 season quilts and they are well worth the money. IMHO. Very well made, warm and light weight. I used the 1 season last week down into the low 30s with no problem. I always sleep in long johns though. I got my 1 season for $120 and the 3 for $158. Great deals.

    Thanks Jim. You know, this is just enabling a gear addict, right? I'll probably pull the trigger this week.

    BTW - did the WBBB get there okay?

    I hear it works on everything as well as multiple items...

    I have a Quest that I've been using for the past 3 seasons. Got a great deal on it - from what I remember $70 for a "last season" model (Even at $100 with the 40% off coupon is a steal)

    I removed the framesheet and the lid and it weighs just over 38 oz (2.4 lbs)
    4392 cu in. - a couple hundo for removing the lid you are still over 4000 cu in for just over 2 lbs.

    Compare it to most other UL packs at that size and you are paying much more than that.

    I have a Jam and I love it. But I pack fairly light. My friend has a Pursuit and it's a really nice pack too. The Jam is frameless, and I pulled out the foam insert that it comes with. I roll up half of a CCF wally world pad and stick it into the pack like a tube, then pack everything inside it. That makes it act like it has a pretty rigid frame, and it's very comfortable. My typical fall-spring load is in the 20-25 pound range though.

    Yes, thank you. I haven't had a chance to take a look at it yet. I work 12hr shifts on the weekend. These Golite quilts are really nice and at such a deal I think you can justify buying it. I really, really like mine. The inner liner is as soft as a baby's behind. The top closure is very similar the Burrow. I also liked that I could get a short. I'm only 5'6" and it fits like a glove.

    I have the women's pinnacle (in purple though - ick), which I got on clearance from their site. Except for the color I love it. I do have to pack my sleeping pad next to my back to keep the shape of the pack - but I normally would have packed that way anyway.

    I am adding some pockets to the hip belt this year, I think the newer models have the hip belt pockets. Need somewhere to stash my M&Ms.

    I really wanted this, but sadly they don't ship to Canada

    EDIT: It turns out my dad is going to Florida this Thursday for 10 days, so we both got on the site and ordered bags, I ordered the 36L Peak pack and he ordered the Travellite Backpack. 225 dollars, after the coupon it was 135. Amazing deal. 5.99 for shipping, and our bags are on the way
