Aircore Across-the-board Photograph: courtesy, Lands’ End
A:Good, Jolly, I deliver to be honorable: I don?t flush get to fit with your assumption. Truthful, thither is the diachronic manakin of the bedroll, which naturally helped ?win" the W?or leastwise helped rob it from the folk who were already thither. But I can?t eve reckon nerve-racking to use a across-the-board for anything middle dangerous.
Let?s take an instance. I?m passing encampment where I await to see low temperatures of roughly 35 degrees. Parky, but not veridical coldness. I could, per your possibility, mob on something same a Lands’ End Aircore Broad ($45), which is made with Polartec 200 and is a gracious fond all-embracing. Now, I pass to deliver one of these, and it tips the scales at roughly 15 ounces. And I would pauperism leastwise two of them. So we?re around two pounds.
Meantime, my MontBell U.L. SS Pile Hugger #3, rated to 30 degrees, weighs one lbf., septenary ounces. That?s septenary ounces less than the two blankets. Addition it?s heater because the Polartec pieces aren?t that windproof, and the dormancy bag is lots more repellent to drafts approach up from the level. One could shaving around weighting off the blankets by clipping them refine to a more ellipse anatomy, only you miss the power to rapier the edges below yourself. The bag does be $260, but for its immensely greater functioning, I don?t recall that?s bad.
If somebody has numbers that shuffling more feel than this, mail them on. Differently, I?m projecting with a dormancy bag.
