Anybody know how strong the pommel is on this tool? I've emailed Grivel directly through their website and never heard back. No evidence of the pommel being anything more than plastic attached to the T rated shaft. Seems like a major weak point and while I love climbing on this tool I'm more than a bit dubious about clipping it while setting a screw or using it as part of an anchor set up (why make a hammer that doubles as a chock if the pommel doesn't carry a rating?). Anybody got thoughts or experience here?

Absolutely. Throw a closed cell foam pad under the sack and a 1/2 or 3/4 air mattress inside. My estimation is that this adds 10-15 degrees of warmth to your sleeping bag rating. Don't expect the Event to be miraculous in terms of vapour transfer on a cold night but better than Goretex.

The Event shell is unbeatably breathable. Pretty good amount of room inside for a high loft sleeping bag although I found it a tad tight with a Neo Air in there too. Great zipper system, hood and bug net for the face are killer and don't give you that on the face suffocating feeling that many sacks do. Only wish it had a tie in point!
