Did anyone say turn on the car lights? you got it in a recargable version! I've skied, mountain biked, climbed and canyoneered in the night with this light. Lasts forever, never had it go dead on a trip yet! I went on a 10 day trip and used it conservatively at first but then wanted to test see how it would last. I used it on high single beam until it automatically dimmed to the next lower setting. Two days later it started to flash so i switched it to the next lower setting(bright 4 bulbs) and finished the trip on this setting and never had to switch to the lowest 4 bulb setting. Best head lamp I've ever had and Ive got 10 or more. I also have the apex non-rechargeable and this light is twice the light, lighter, brighter, and last lots longer.
My scale said 26 oz (1lb. 10oz) no stuff sack for regular. Stuff sac was 3.5 oz. I tested two of the same bags.

Regular is longer than most 6-0" bags probably fit up to 6-3". I am just over 6'-0", 220 lbs, 46"chest I usually have to get long bags but there is lots of width and length in the Somnus 30.
I would never use the included stuff/compression sack 3.5 oz, waste of time. The bag does compresses very small, it easily fit in a #3 5L granite gear stuff sack. It weighed in at 26 oz. on my scale. Slightly heavier than expected for regular but the bag is very lofty, roomy, and very warm. It appears about three or four times thicker than my Big agnes pitch pine 40 degree, and two times as lofty as the Mont bell Spiral UL 30. The monte bell is a long and this bag is only 2-3 inches shorter. This Stoic Somnus has a zippered insulated pocket in the foot box. I'm assuming is for gear that needs to stay warm. It is not a foot vent as i had hoped. I has size 12 feet and the foot box is roomier than most bags i have tried. This bag moves well. I can roll inside it if im not using the hood and it rolls nicely with me when using the hood. I sleep warm but believe I would be comfy into the upper teens based on loft and comfort at 30 degrees without using the hood. Another Great Product by Stoic. Everything I have owned from Stoic has been great. I only wish it had a Goat on it!
There is a UL and a non UL version!
I own the Endorphin and it has been a great boot. I am 220 pounds and like a stiff boot to drive fat skis. The Endorphin was just the ticket. I was in a shop looking at the Axon for dynafit compatibility. One of the gear heads suggested the Radium and offered to let me try them. I have skied them a couple full days at the resort. All i can say is, these are an amazing out of this world boot. They are stiff but not like the Endorphin which is like skiing against a wall. The Radium flex the with you keeping you one with the boot. If you hit a hole and are thrown forward the boot flexes just the right amount to maintain perfect balance and control. I couldn't over flex the boot either, like i could in the Megarides. Did i mention light, Wow! A very simple walk/ski mode switch unlike the Endorphin where you have to pay close attention to which ski mode degree you are in, or you might be skiing 25 degreeProxy-Connection: keep-alive
I used the Afterburner while hiking Teton Pass in temps between 15 & 20 degrees with high winds. My legs were freezing in my softshell pants but my core was toasty warm. I also tried it for an over night tour. We skinned in for 4 hours with a sled, and surprisingly, I didn't need to switch to my down jacket while we set up camp and cooked dinner. Bring a waterproof shell if snow is in the forecast. It is not as packable as some fleeces, but packs better than most softshells. I would prefer the Afterburner over my Windstopper softshell.
Sizing:I am 6'and have a tall torso with a 45 inch chest and the XL was too big, the large is perfect. If in doubt i would size down!
BOTTOMLINE: It breathes better than my softshells keeping me dry and warm while skinning and Skiing.
