First morning on our summer trip to the winds.
This year I had the most fantastic opportunity to be a part of Therm-a-Rest's new 'Dreamers' program.
Here's the blog I wrote for them. Part 1: The Bike Ride (on Therm-a-Rest's blog)
Therm-a-Rest, the leader in sleeping pad technology for the last 20-30 years, is now making sleeping bags, and integrative sleeping bag/pad systems.
I tested the Antares 20º bag; weight 1lb. 15oz.
the NeoAir All Season pad; weight 1lb. 3oz.
The combination of a new tent and sleeping bag/pad system
lightened my load by over 4lbs.
Sleeping with the bag secured down to the sleeping pad,
(with 2 flexible fabric bands,)
allowed for a more comfortable night sleep,
with less cold spots inside the bag,
and more freedom to move.
Making for a warmer and more comfortable night out,
with less weight.
Yes it won outdoor industry awards,,, again!
|Just make sure you wake up on the right side of the sign.|
(And look at the thickness of that sleeping pad!)
And, how do I say thank you enough,
to the American Alpine Club (AAC), and
the 'Live Your Dream' grant for helping support
our 2013 human-powered expedition to the Wind Rivers
& the Tetons…!
