    You can tie off the webbing to your desired setting to keep it in place.

    Plenty of water! I was up on the BRP in that area Sunday and lots of small creeks were flowing well.

    Parkway is currently open, but subject to change.

    I have used a 40* quilt laid over the top of my 10* bag to increase warmth before and it worked great. I was toasty warm in temps somewhere between -5 and 0.
