I am hiking the AT through The Whites in August (Vt to Me). I'll be using my HH. I don't want to bring my EMS Mountain Light 20, I want to reduce weight and volume.
What should I bring for warmth at night? I know that it can get chilly at altitude, and probably muggy at the bases.
I was thinking about a fleece blanket, but I'm not convinced it'll keep me warm...
I've looked at down quilts, but they are a little pricey.... about as much as a full sleeping bag.
What do you suggest??
