    I like that lid!

    By the way - have you run across a decent cup that fits well inside the Inferno? I've got a titanium mug that probably holds 10 ounces and the XL3 nests inside it perfectly. ...

    I've been meaning to try the trash bag approach for a while. The included inflation bag for my older xtherm is so small that it's kind of infuriating to use. The nozzle design and larger bag for...

    With an older self inflating pad, a pump wasn't necessary because the pad would naturally pull in the majority of air needed to properly pressurize it. Unless you were in a hurry, you could avoid...
