Tall Sized Sleeping System
« on: October 29, 2017, 06:01:50 PM »
I know this is going to be completely subjective but I'm curious.... If you fall into the "tall" category on a bag or sleeping pad, do you go with the tall size or save weight/space and buy the normal length?

i'd go with the tall bag.
a little extra room at the bottom is great to toss your morning clothes in to keep warm.
a lot of times the difference is like 3-4 oz mayyyybe.
you can go normal, even shorter on the pad if you want to save weight there..

I have a long marmot bag and not enough room for clothes at the bottom.

$5 says for a sleeping pad you would recommend one that holds air.😉
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

Every father should remember that one day his children will follow his example instead of his advice.
