    I'm a huge fan of DCF and that certainly wasn't an issue...it was the lack of simplicity in the set-up, and to a lesser extent, the take down of the SS Li. I used to be able to get my Duplex up in...

    It was a good tent, spacious but I found the interior sagged more than I liked and I found it a pain to put up and put away. I did a full "first impressions" review on my blog:

    Klymit makes a 2 person sleeping pad. I've really liked my single insulated pad by Klymit and can't recommend them enough. The double doesn't have the highest R value out there but it's the only...

    Oh, and if you don't go the DIY route, the Osprey Talon 33 would be a good, smaller option. I use mine mostly for day hikes but could see it being usable for 2-3 nights backpacking in late spring/...

    Haven't got much advice in the way of backpacks but as far as camping, I do live in the UK now (was in Wyoming). We do "wild camp" in England but it is technically illegal as all land is privately...

    I don't know anything about the Traverse...but I will say that 85 and even potentially 65 will be way too big with too much room that you will be tempted to fill up with extra stuff.

    You can buy what we call methylated spirits in Europe and probably in Turkey. It's what people use for alcohol stoves over here in the UK.

    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.

    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...
