Thanks, guys! Generally, a nice trip report of a snowy year. Sounds like Andrew had a nice trip, overall.
How were the bugs?
As you said, the durability of the UberLight is still in question. In summer weather (no snow,) I can see where the light weight becomes a major advantage. But, in most cases, going below 40F without some sort of supplement is not going to be warm enough for most, and, durability is still a real concern. This means you have to carry some sort of CCF pad as well, both for supplementing warmth and increasing durability. For summer use, fine, but for spring/fall…??Aug 22, 2019 at 7:26 pm #3607183

Andrew, you mentioned you started out the trail with 2 Liters of water–was that all you carried? I’m headed there in 2 weeks, and I’m trying to gauge what my longest water carry may be, and how much to allow for.
