    Nice!

    I bought a Winter version Wilderness Equipment Space 2 for the snow and am still waiting for enough snow to try it out this season. Reason I bought this is I wanted the space and flexibility of a 2 man tent but also lightweight, as most of my trips will be solo back country Alpine ski sessions so no splitting the weight.

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.
    That's a good way to put it.

    Yeah, I have used it a bit now.

    Used it in the snowies for three days, where I got frozen over. Pretty good in those conditions, but I froze to death cos of inadequate sleeping bag (hence purchase of Cumulus).
    I really like it in slightly warmer conditions, where I can use the mozzie net. Comfy AF.

    I used this quilt in Byron over the weekend - was pretty good! Weight/size ratio is on point.
    Amy - are you looking to get something lighter? I think the 450 would be perfect for CBR conditions
    I found it just perfect for Byron's warmer climate as well

    Thanks Tom. Will keep the Borah snowyside eVent bivy in mind.

    Tested my Wilderness Equipment Space 2 for the first time up at Stirling last weekend. Dug it in and on the lee side of the saddle so didn't flinch when the wind picked up Saturday evening.

    Bought the two person for the extra versatility and space - though not quite sure how a second person would fit comfortably!

    Looks rad dalai! Have been meaning to do something similar for years and finally try snow camping. Never been up Stirling, how big a trip is it to the saddle on skis?

    I camped at Bluff Spur Hut which is ~4.3km uphill from Telephone Box Junction. This time it took 80 minutes to get to from the car. It included ~10 minutes worth of stops to first disrobe then to get the boots skis and skins on once there was enough snow.

    Had the place nearly to myself Friday evening after getting there during the morning. Saturday was overrun with at least 20 tents! Though it was still pleasant at my tent as most people crowded into the hut.

    Someone on Bikepacking Gear market ('straya) on Facebook is selling a S2S Traverse XT1 sleeping bag. Good looking bag. I don't know if the price is good though. Seems it.
