    I smarted out with a Walmart travel pillow. Loved that thing. I now use a Thermarest compressible pillow. Same weight and size but packs smaller. Worth carrying.

    Other than the Neo Air (which I haven't tried) I used the Sea to Summit Etherlight Insulated and found it very comfortable as a side sleeper (as a woman). It is ever so slightly wider than the Neo...

    Several countries are fine with wild camping and it is perfectly legal, others are not. This is was a very comprehensive list I found: http://momgoescamping.com/wild-camping-laws-europe/

    Be careful with wild camping. It is illegal along most parts of the Tour du Mont Blanc and in the Dolomites, and not just the kind of illegal where you can be stealthy and you can get away with it....

    Tempting but I'm now in the UK so shipping might be a little expensive. I got a hole in my SS Li along the edge (fixed with DCF tape of course). PM me if you would still be interested.

    The irony of that is that I'm the complete opposite...had the Duplex, sold it to buy the SS Li. Miss the Duplex.

    You can get anything you want but I think after 2-3oz you are at the point of diminishing returns as the baffles prevent that much down from lofting properly. While I got the extra 2oz to boost the...

    Western Mountaineering make some of the best bags out there that are generally true to rating but I would also get overstuff more to stop down shift than anything else.

    As a woman (and neither of those above are) I'd go for a 0* bag if you are actually planning to go down to 15*.

    I am also a very cold-blooded woman and have a 10* to go to mid 20s. I won't use a...

    Backpacking Scotland's West Highland Way

    This trail was top of my list to do after I moved back to the UK from the US. I knew Scotland was one of the few places that rivaled the stunning places I had experienced in Wyoming, Utah and...

    When I first bought the Arc Haul I'd read this too. I tie off the ends with a half hitch or two. I've never had any issues with slippage. A knot on each side makes the difference.
