    I have two U.L. Super Spiral Down Huggers sleeping bags (#3 and #5) and love them both. I might even buy a #1. They are the warmest, most comfortable bags I own, even compared to my Feathered Friends and Marmot down bags!

    I just bought a Montbell Alpine Light Down Parka. Brown Santa has it scheduled for delivery on Thursday.

    The MontBell dynamo pants are amazing. Even after several months of almost constant wear, they show no signs of aging. The fabric is amazingly strong for such a light product. At first, I would baby the pants because I thought they would be fragile, but I soon found myself using them just like any other pants. MontBell USA sales and service folks have always gone out of their way to help me, and insure that as a customer I am satisfied. Their products might cost a bit more to begin with, but they are worth it.

    Old thread but i'll bite.

    I used the Thermawrap parka (has a hood) for my AT hike. Lasted the whole way and i still use it in the Sierra.
    Lost a bit of it's loft, i estimate about a third, but that is after 100 plus days of being squished into and out of the pack
    and being used as a pillow.

    Two thoughts on the Montebell thermawrap parka: #1 size up. If you are a mediun.. get the large.
    #2 the parka was great even unprotected in the rain. Stayed reasonably warm even when soaked and dried on my body an hour after the rain stopped.

    For 99 bucks i think i got a deal considering it is still in service today.
    Don't think it would hold up to the Smokeys at 20 degrees again but all in all a good piece of gear.
    I really wish there was an American made version of this garment to replace mine when it finally dies.
