I plan on watching the event as I am curious on what makes these bags worth and cost so much.
The market out there is getting more and more competive each and every day. That is a good thing as long as we have a place to compare them all and get honest reviews and feedback to be able to compare them. It gives us more options. I think a big key on any company is continuing to find innovation and find ways to encourage folks to buy their product instead of from their competitor. If folks don't see the value in what they have to offer they won't sell much of it. Give someone a product they find good value in and they will tend to buy it. I think a big problem out there is being able to compile it all and what really is out there or on the horizon to be able to make wise decisions. Some products do have better value than others.

Good point on the branding and I like the idea of competition. Competition usually makes good business and prices usually reflect competition but I'm not sure in this instant.
Anyone else look to Outdoor Gear Lab reviews for help on picking lightweight equipment?
Here's the link to last year's ultralight bag comparison. Hopefully, an updated one will be coming the end of next month when more 2014 bags have been released. http://www.outdoorgearlab.com/Ultral...ng-Bag-Reviews
thanks for the link never have heard of that site
Don, that site has been really helpful.
I was trying to decide which light down jacket I would buy as a midlayer to carry in my pack and what to pick for a really lightweight wind shirt. I ended up with the Mont Bell Alpine Light jacket and will probably buy the Patagonia Houdini based on their tests and reviews. Being cheap, I wait to find someone selling last year's model on either AdHunter or eBay.
I buy used all the time. Great way to get great gear.
