I used this while floating 600 miles on the Yukon River in Canada/Alaska. With a touch of a button I could let my family know via email where I was and if I was OK. I never used the emergency button, but it was a huge comfort to myself and my family that I could have help if I needed it. Bottom line: If you spend time in the back country, this is something that can save your life.

I bought my first Litespeed in 2001. I still use it to this day. When Lamson came out with this reel over a decade ago, they set the weight standard for large arbor reels. It weighs practically nothing, its drag system is second to none and its damn good looking too. This is the best reel you can buy under 300. Period.

Throw out every floatant that you have and start using this stuff. As a fly fishing guide I can say "Mucie" is bar-none the best out there. Works great for bushy dry flies to small midges. Once you switch, you will never go back to gink, froggs fannie or any other.

The real Bottom Line:

This is a summer sleeping bag. This is not your GO2 bag in the spring, winter or fall. This is the bag you take on a backpacking trip in the summer, pinching for weight, and willing to sacrifice a little warmth for more movement in the bag. (You can damn well do anything in these spiral stretch technology bags ;) You can always layer correctly to make this bag warmer too.

I have the 0 degree version of this bag. I spent a week in southern Utah canyoneering and backpacking-- this bag kept me super warm, when others were cold. My buddy was in the MH Lamina -15 below bag, and he seemed to be cold. I am 5' 10'' 165 and bought the regular- next time i will buy the long- a regular was tight- but still super comfy.

Bottom Line:
Its warm, feels great to the skin and has a nifty zipper that eliminates snags. The hugger feature is nice, stuffing this bad can be slippery, but it compresses down well with straps-- the extra weight is worth the warmth and comfort.

I spent a month using this pad while canyoneering in Southern Utah. I put it directly on the red rock and many other rough surfaces. Its tough, warm and extremely comfy. I had friends who had spent a lot more $ on their Thermarests, that envied my pad!! (they actually pack smaller than other pads too)
