    My solution is to use tarp build from Reflect-Tex silnylon.

    Mine is custom build by TiGoat and it works great.

    Did you consider Israel?

    They have all required techniques and resources to produce great products.

    Probably not cheap as China yet not as expensive as US or Europe

    I don't think that you will find somebody that would argue that having water-resistant down is the GREATEST feature of all.

    The only question is how safe and how good is it – both are remain to be seen.

    Fabric can help as well – old British made Pertex fabric helped a lot with keeping my sleeping bag dry when others in our group had some "wet" problems with theirs.

    Guys, I updated the first post with more answers. Please read it again.

    This is actually an impressive way from the Western Mountaineering company to think about these problems. I am highly impressed.

    I guess there is a better way to do it perfect but it will cost much more:

    Cognac is an example of this. Very strict production regulations: grape sources, bottle type, cork that could be used, etc – and priced accordingly.

    To add one more concern to the equation:

    Even if using chemical gives down nice water repellent features – the same chemicals over time may lead to some nasty health hazard.

    As example:
    Lexan for years was positioned as great material for backpackers: light, tough, etc.

    Then it suddenly became clear that Lexan (which is about 100% BPA built) is problematic material to say least.

    For me Burrow Quilt did the job.

    Actually I was so please with price/performance ratio that I worked with the owner directly and created custom made Burrow Quilt for couple.

    Inspired by this thread: http://www.backpackinglight.com/cgi-bin/backpackinglight/xdpy/forum_thread/11371/index.html?skip_to_post=83261#83261

    I got the quilt in enormous (King) size that we are using daily at home during cold winter nights.

    It is absolutely AMAZING. Period. It is super light and super warm.

    The only problem that it is very hard to get up….

    Hi,

    I have being looking for one while ago and settled down on this one:
    http://www.amazon.com/EatSmart-Precision-Digital-Kitchen-Silver/dp/B001N07KUE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1307903541&sr=8-1

    Easily, much better than everything I had before. Look at the reviews.

    Well,

    Everybody in this forum will strongly advice you to take light runners or some.

    But if you really want boot, there are couple of boots that you should look into:
    Lowa Banff Pro
    http://www.lowaboots.com/catalog/ShowBoot.cfm?StockNum=2104954649&Category=2&Type=M
    And
    Asolo TPS 535 LTH V
    http://www.asolo.com/eng/prod_list.php?area=2&catid=5

    I have Lowa and they heavy but close to perfect for my purpose.

    It happened to be that I have all 3 sizes of Driducks.

    The smallest out of three is Medium size.
    And the Small is very close to Large.

    The difference between sizes about 4cm in length.

    Initially I bought Medium for me (6, 170) and Small for my GF (5.6, …).
    But, when first tried – we immediately switched the sizes.

    Hi,

    Does anyone know where do I find the netting material used in backpackinglight headnet?

    I understand that this product is much more superior that other headnet made from regular noummsee netting.

    I used DriDuck top on couple of peaks at White Mountains.
    It was really nice, warm and comfy. Though I probably would agree with previous reply and not stress it to much.

    Did you have a chance to look at Montane SpeedLight?

    Everyone seem to love it.

    It happens that I own S, M, L sizes of Driducks which I bought couple of month ago.

    Guest what?

    Yes right, size S is actually bigger than M. By inch or so. L is larger than both of them.

    Anyway, I have a question about patching Driducks: I have couple of small cuts in my DriDuck suit how do I patch those? McNett SilNet?

    Did you take a loot at:

    It looks nice but not sure it will meet the lightweight…

    You can go back and relisten to Western Mountaineering podcast.
    Gary stayed there if I recall correctly that their method for down measuring is conservative and their source for down is Poland and Hungary.

    Beware the REI Quarter Dome T3 Tent is not for tall people.

    If you more than 6" look somewhere else.

    Did you have a chance to look at UltrapodII?

    I am not sure that it will perfectly fit your demands, but it certainly worth to look at.

    They also have a preproduction quick release head option for it. And this combination is working perfectly for me with my D40.
