The Big Agnes bags are great! Lots of room to move around compared to other bags. Price is good on these. Havent used below 30 but at 35 -40 these are really warm no need for extra layers .Very cozy
Pad sleeve is great if you havent tried this type of bag it is a great design holds pad in place no matter how much you toss and turn the bag and pad are allways where it needs to be.

Great little kit for three hikers/campers. recently used and worked great very handy with everything you need for three nested. the great thing was we were the only one with this kit so it was easy to locate our cooking items laying around the base camp site while everyone else debated about if they had there cup or someone elses. LOL
no issues with cook set . packs resonably well, only issue is cant get msr stove in this kit unless u pull out the three cups so youll have to pack stove seperate. since this is the case easy to add fry pan to nest with this kit since stove has to pack seperate anyways

The Big Agnes air core pad is a decent pad. Great for back packing as it packs down to a very small size and is light weight. Bonus is that it comes with a repair kit located in small pouch in stuff sack. Takes a little time to blow up but inflates fairly quickly.
My only issue with it is that it is alittle narrow and didn't completely fill my big agnes sleeping bag built in pad pouch but it was ok.

Just got this bag. It is a must to have a sleeping pad with this since there is zero fill on the back side. Luckily you have a sleeve for your pad to go into which keeps it in place. otherwise it is as thin as a bed sheet . I have the long version but if you are taller than 5' 9/10 it s not long enough. pillow pocket is nice addition
it is a good light weight summer bag

They are used for public water disinfection all over the country . The large units they make dissinfect millions of gallons of water a day piped to homes in small to major cities all over the usa and the world. I know because I install them. :)
If you live in new mexico your water is more than likely purified by a large miox system

these are made In the usa their factory is in Albuquerque New Mexico
These were made and used for our military for many years before being introduced for civilian use. The company also makes large water disinfection systems for public utility use. (the water you drink from the tap in your city)

I have these on both my 2002 VW passat and 2008 Nissan Titan. They work great . no issues lock down tight and no slippage.
Had yakima hullraisers before these and had alot of slippage and movement just could not get them to lock in well on the yakima round bars, so switched to the THULE rack and kayak holders and now no woories

The hull raiser aero do not work well with the round bar you need to get the regular hullraiser for round bar. I have the Yakima round bar and had some hullraiser aeros and they do not hold well at all. They will slide back and fourth and the rubber grip underneath will come out allowing further movement during travel . I learned this first hand. I have since purchased the regular hullraiser mount to attach still not a super tight clamp down . The THULE bars and kayak mounts are much better. I have them on my second vehicle and no slippage issue and they hold tight.
