Was wondering what the benefits of flour where... never heard of it but hey, something new and cool comes along once in a while. Good thing I didn't try it.. :chuckle:
benefit is you basically become a human wind checker after your first nights sleep :chuckle:

....and mice, softly brushing your ears and giving you little mice kisses all night long

Since that's a 15 degree survival rating and if that's how you normally store it, I'd call that a 35 degree comfort rating bag. You might also need a more insulated pad as others have mentioned.

Look at LiteOutdoors. They are good stoves and the tent is pretty nice. You can get into a combo there for less than $700. Seek is very high quality and just about anything they make is great but you are going to $$pay$$ for it. PM me and I'll tell you more. They wont let me share the link unless I pay.

I just bought this from mountainsmith, and will install a stove jack in it. Ive only had it up 2 nights to test it out, seems good so far. I found a discount code and got it for 107 delivered. Hoping to find a small stove for it in the next few months. Its not very tall but more than enough room for 1 guy. Weighs under 2 pounds, you need hiking poles or to cut your own poles out of wood..

You can share the link. People share links all the time. You're no different. You can't promote the business you were promoting where you were being given gear in exchange for posting reviews online.

I've never used Seek Outside gear, but they have a very god name they've built up for a long time.

I use the 8 man Seek Outside tent.  It's great and I'll be getting a smaller one for backpacking.

Prior to the Seek Outside, I've owned a Black Diamond Megamid and the Go Lite floorless tents.  I like them, because you can wear the boots inside, let the dogs (and sometimes the kids!), spill the coffee... But, in the summer you can get spiders and critters in there.

If not backpacking a wall tent or Alaknak other walled tent options are quicker, roomier and cheaper than tipi's IMO.   I use the tipi for pack-in camps and spike camps but gets old in a hurry compared to wall tent or alaknak luxury and zero condensation - plus you can run a big stove in a wall tent that will burn 3-4 hours.

The reviews on that Nemo bag say its barely good to 30 degrees, with 650 down vs 850 or 900 preferred sounds like thats a good summer bag but you need a good 0 or -10 bag.
