    Just got a bit of bonus $$ and time to finally buy a quilt. How has the Cumulus gone so far tom? I don't think I would need the 450 though. Also how much was shipping approx?

    There's a -7C Hammock Gear quilt going on the Bushwalk forums for $250: http://bushwalk.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=25949

    I'll be using the quilt for the first time this weekend - will report back!

    Something like 15 euros for 2 bags + down jacket. Arrived in 5 days

    Not exactly bike-related, but my wife just purchased a Hilleberg Nammatj 2 tent for mountains and snow conditions. Hasn't arrived yet, but I'm excited.



    That's tent 5 now, with the Macpac Microlight (1 person), Mont Moondance 2 (2 person), MSR Holler (3 person), Black Diamond Mega Light (4 person, tarp) (and our Exped and Rab bivvy bags, and a large emergency bothy). But since my Fairydown 4-season mountain tent died it's the first real 4-season tent we've had in a few years.

    It's my first tunnel tent. Always been a dome tent fan. But I figure you just have to be more creative in securing it when things get rocky (like the time I secured my BD Mega Light to a piton hammered into the roof of an overhanging boulder and covered the bottom in rocks - escaped a NZ alps storm, wild night!)

    They look good, but, Geez, over $1000 for a tent.

    Well I probably spent about 300 nights in my last 4-season tent and it died in the end. If I get that kind of use out of it, $3/night isn't bad, and then by all accounts the Hilleberg will last longer. And I also don't want to die in it - my Fairydown copped some wind in Patagonia that would have destroyed any other tent I've owned.
