    Help me choose

    I need to upgrade my two man tent and sleeping bag.

    My two man tent and sleeping bag is trashed and I need to upgrade.

    For the tent I would need a rain fly and prefer so thing light weight and quick setup.

    The sleeping bag I would like it to be a cold weather bag with as much fill as possible but still keeping the weight as lite as possible. I don't care for mummy bags at all.

    Thanks for the help!

    Would you consider floor less for your tent?

    The GoLite SL5 can be used with and without the nest. I had perimeter netting installed and don't even use the nest anymore.

    It is nice to run a sub-3 pound shelter you can stand up in, and don't have to take off your boots.

    BB. Do you have any experience with the SL 2 tarp? I have been looking into it.

    Not that model, MM. I do have the GoLite poncho tarp for quick tarp setups with my TiGoat Bivy.

    If I were looking for a dedicated ground tarp setup though, I would be saving my pennies for a Kifaru Megatarp or Supertarp.

    wrap your facial hair around your back and slap on a couple of body warmers and hunker up against a tree my man. the sl 2 tarp is pretty awesome and light wieght, but i prefer some of the kelty 2 man tents, enough room for you and your gear inside so it doesnt have a foot of snow on it in the morn and your hydro pack may or may not be frozen solid come morning.

    Check out Tarptents brother:

    Maximum space for the weight in a full coverage traditional tent. The only caveat is many models are single wall, so you have to take care dealing with condensation. This hasn't been to tough in the field for me though.

    I have Big Agnes Copper Spur tent and BA bag as well. No complaints. Can't remember bag model name but it is 15 degree 700 down I believe. I have a liner too. Do you have Promotive?
