about AirCore.....you are hard core!! Back in the 70's when backpacking stuff
was strictly mail-order and before EMS became yuppified, I bought an EMS down
bag good for way below zero. It cost several week's worth of pay from the
local burger joint.
One trip I slept under a tarp and almost froze, even in my spiffy bag with an
ensolite pad. After that it was a nice, cozy tent, with snow banked all
around it ;-) How the heck do you keep warm on the TOP? I can understand
putting scads of insulation under you, but that leaves a lot of body parts
hanging in the breeze! Brrrrrrrrr.........
