I have a 1999 Sierra Design Sandman 15° Synthetic. 4.5 pounds?
and a Thermarest Guidelight, 2 pounds.
Starting my thru hike in mid to late February. Wanted to buy a Western Mountian Badger. (I have 59" shoulders).
On a tight budget and the cost of the Badger just went up another $65 this year.
Need to keep my gear cost down and use as much of my older gear as possible.
Is it too much weight to bring the Sandman, and will my aging bag be a bad choice in winter Appalachian Trail. Wanted to go with a lighter weight 15° bag and NeoAir All Season.
Sandman seems more then twice the weight on a bag that might be to cold to use?
Has anyone used a 10 year old Synthetic for a Thru Hike.
Do you remember the Guidelight?How does to compare to the NeoAir All Season?
