Re: cody.magill itinerary

I would say 20 degree should be fine. All three of my trips were in late August/early Sept; a 15 degree seemed too warm at times on one trip, 30 degree on the other two was just fine.

Re: Tarptent Double Rainbow?

I have used the MSR missing link without disappointments, but, shaving a full pound off the weight, I switched to the Flylite. The Flylite reminded me of the Tarptent Rainbow for use with hiking poles. Only 5 nights in it to date; happy so far. Both of these definitely 3 season, with plenty of venti...
