Scottage, I'm not sure what type of alchol stove you made (bought?) but most of them don't require a special priming paste. The most common types with the large center hole and burner holes doesn't. If for your stove you really think you need priming you can use a shorter wider can and burn a little alchol in it to prime the stove. One less thing to carry that way

I could use alchol to prime but comparing the quantity of alchol to paste that it takes to start the stove the paste wins. A little bit of that paste burns for a long time.

All that Lomotil, guess that saves the weight of the "feaces shovel" too, eh?

Y'know what would be really funny? Hearing that deep-voiced late-night SBS movie advisory announcer dude (yeah, you know the one) slowly read out those tool lists:
"latex gloves...one roll of duct tape...two spark plugs...WITH protectors..."

So I've tried to follow this thread over the months, and the answer to this question may be buried somewhere in here, but...

what are the best choices for a really warm sleeping bag that packs small.

I already have a Kelty Clear Creek that is rated to 20 degrees. So I need something that's rated for colder than that.

Suggestions?

thx

tim

Tim,

It's a simple answer. $$$$

More specifically, Down is lighter and can compact more than synthetic and is more $
Mummy shape is lighter but less comfortable and when you spend $ you get baffles etc which make the bag more efficient
The higher loft of the down the less weight of down which needs to be in the bag but more $

I use a hammock which needs a warmer bag because a tent is worth about +5 degrees. I also prefer semi rectangular because it is more comfortable.

If you want to spend around $7-800 in Australian dollars you will get a very good light high loft (800+) down mummy bag. Mine cost $300 and it is down, -6 rated semi rectangular in a compression sack when travelling and I use extra lining under the hammock when it gets cold.

Thanks - I was afraid you'd say that.

When you say -6, that's celsius right - so about equivalent to the 20 degree farenheit i have.

maybe i just have to accept that's as good as it gets for the money i want to spend...

So what's the problem with the one you have now? What is the situation when you get cold? How cold do you get? How old is your bag?

Lightweight? Matter of opinion!

This is about as light camping as I get anymore with all the stuff I take!

You can add a liner for a few degrees more warm (5-10 deg. F) that packs to the size of an orange.

You can buy an overbag--basically a second 20-40 deg bag big enough to go over your 20 degree bag.

You can buy heavy long underwear or fleece to wear (also good under the riding gear). and wear a hat or balaclava.

You can buy a better mattress pad. You can lose a lot of heat to the ground plus you will be more comfortable on hard ground.
