    John, it's the whole pack. My torso length is about 17.5 inch.

    I am actually also thinking about Canon G1X instead E-M5 + 12-50mm combination.

    First the canon is lighter by 100grams. The canon is 534 grams while the Olys are 636grams combined.
    Then the 12-50mm sharpness also pales in comparison to G1X lens.
    Not to mention G1X is much more pocketable than the E-M5.

    To (future) OM-D users: what lenses are you going to use when backpacking?

    I wonder if Sigma really should add "Merrill" name. Kinda long for a camera model name. Also, if they are as slow as existing Sigma cameras, Merrill would have a bad connotation.

    Tim's Revelation X quilts are cheap, very light, and have excellent craftmanship…

    I'm also researching for a merino top for high humidity / continuous cold rain condition. Is it true that merino is warm even wet? My experiences are only with merino socks and possumdown glove (both are blends) and they both made me shivering when saturated with moisture.

    I'm in the same dilemma with you, and basically chose to sell the R1 and is thinking to replace it with a Montane Featherlite Smock. I presume it is roughly warmer just a bit compared to R1 + Houdini, but at the half weight, and it will slide nicely over a thin baselayer. A baselayer is already wicking anyway, why add another baselayer?

    I meant the current 12mp sensor which is lagging… surely I hope the new sensor bring a real boost in IQ though, because I'm an MFT user :)

    I think the bigger news for us is actually the new 12-50mm lens. It has many outdoor friendly features, such as wide range, 24mm wide angle, lightweight, weatherproof, non-extending zoom, and very close focusing capability. It really hits the sweet spots of jack of all trades outdoor lens. The only reservation is only the sensor behind it lags greatly in DR and noise even bested by Fuji X10… I mean, why carry bigger cameras and lenses when Fuji X10 has better DR and brighter lens?

    Hi Colin,

    I'm in Japan, as Michael said if you're adamant for montbell perhaps I can buy and ship one for you.

    ps: I don't work for montbell, just want to help :p

    We can refer to Richard's clo chart in garment warmth thread to get the amount of required insulation at certain temp. First, specify the lowest expected temp. Second, check whether your layering meets the clo needed for relaxed activities at that temp. Finally, check whether all of the layering + quilt and pad meets the clo needed for sleeping at that temp.

    >> Now where can I get me some of that?? I probably gotta hunt down my own darn Polar Bear…

    >> (Not, as soon as I get in the area, I think the Polar Bear will start hunting me!)

    I'd suggest you equip yourself with REI gears as eric said they will replace them even if you fed them to bears… :D

    Hi, the waist is 15.5 inch measured that way.
    The waistband is elastic, so it fits my 32 inch waist perfectly.

    edit: I think I've replied your PM but sorry if it was fallen through
