I've used a 1010 with rubber liner and a home made egg crate foam top liner for the past eight years to keep my work Pentax Optio camera safe, dry, and dustless. As a wilderness manager and a rec manager this set up has been with me everyday in my saddlebags or back pack. Rain, mud, snow, and endless banging around grappling with the elements is every day life for my camera and pelican. Mine worked so well that I purchased similar set ups for the wilderness rangers, although I did have to file off the lanyard holder on the newer Pentax Optio cameras to get them to fit into the 1010 without taking out the rubber liner. I came here to the sale to buy more....but BC didn't have any 1010s :-( boo, hiss.

I've spent my career working in large wilderness areas in MT and WY. I've have NEVER been a fan of down gear and 99.9% of cold weather gear I own is synthetic insulation. Believe me, I've been spanked by Pa nature far too many times in the backcountry to take the lessons learned lightly. However, my main backpacking, ski, and inflatable kayaking buddy has owned one of these WM bags for YEARS of constant use. I on the other hand have gotten by very well on NOLS garage sale MH used synthetic bags and a MH lamina(?) -40 bag for winter. (as an aside, I will NEVER own another synthetic bag made by the furry rodent people, not good). I still have my 1969 Outward Bound REI McKinley down bag that has outlived it's usefulness (lack of ventilation and loft, i.e. cold spots). However, since my retirement goals in 20 months are to start ticking the long distance trails, I've been retooling my gear for as light weight and quality. Knowing how pleased Curt has been and researching the rep on these bags finally caused me to reluctantly shell out the big buck...(on sale). I am extremely pleased with this top quality made purchase. So far so good, and am confident in the long run that it will perform as well as it has for Curt and the other reviewers have raved.
