I am an EXPED user for life! you just can't beat this pad for packed size, weight, comfort and R value combined. I have this one and the down7 pad love it also, but just to heavy for most backpacking trips where you don't absolutely need the higher R value that's why I bought this one. Anyhow love it and would highly recommend this pad to anyone.

I have used this stove for the last four years and it has served me well, the one thing I would say though is make sure that you know how to field service this stove before you head out on the trial, its easy to do. I found out the hard way if its starts to take longer to boil and just doesn't seem to be running right make sure you take it apart and clean it, if you don't it uses way more fuel then it should I ended up stranded on the last night of a trip without being able to cook and I should have had more fuel than I needed. Ever since then I have kept an eye on that and its been awesome! MSR makes a spoon/slash tool for this stove that I highly suggest you purchase

I have not had the problem of the zipper jamming like the review before, I love how small it packs down and it is nice and roomy for a mummy bag which actually allows me to get some sleep on a trip. I did find its temperature rating was not accurate, I am a bit of a cold sleeper but I needed my icebreaker long johns and my smartwool quarter zip.to get through a couple of nights. all in all I will be taking this bag on the longer trips this year again just because of its size and weight and room, I always have the clothes so dosent really matter the weights there anyhow.
