Re: No Birthdays?

Last time I checked... Barbie is not a member of bpLite. If she ever decides to spend a weekend in the woods instead of cruising around the Barbie Mansion in her Barbie Corvette, well, maybe then I'll celebrate her birthday. :lol:

Re: Down or Synthetic?

I use a Western Mountaineering Ultralite . It's a 20 degree down mummy bag with a draft collar, packs up to about football size, and works well. The specs say 1lb 13oz but I have found mine to way 31.35oz packed in it's stuff sack. I don't use a compression sack for reasons already stated by Ridgeru...
