    I didn't want to start a new thread. But all threads on this topic were from 2009. So here it is... I own 2 of the Modular Sleep Systems. They came with a patrol bag that provides cold weather protection from 35 to 50 °F (1.67 °C to 10 °C). The intermediate bag provides cold weather protection...

    I want a light weight emergency bivy/sleeping bag that will keep me alive if I was dropped in Alaska in shorts and had to stay over night. I saw adventure medical has a good one and I would assume it reflects heat better than a USGI bivy. Any other light weights that hold heat and might fit two...

    Which one would you rather use, a one man tent or a bivy? I guess a lot of it depends on where your going to be camping, weather, temps and preference. For several years I have used a Wenzel starlight one man tent. But now I'am looking at getting a new one man tent. One of the members here...

    ...for sleeping? :D Att I have a Claytor jungle hammock and found it to be hit/miss no matter how good a sag I have. I was thinking of using it as a bivy and then talked to some friends about the MSS. Anyone here only using a bivy or bivy & tarp setup? If so, what brand/models are you using for...

    For the past few years I have weighed my options when it comes to adequate outdoor, 4 season shelter. I have mostly always used a tent. Ive slowly moved up from a coleman, to a north face, to a MSR. But now Im second guessing myself. It has its upsides: For morale purposes 4 sides and a roof...
