Has Tim or anyone else actually had to use one and what was their experience?
    I've been carrying one year-round for a couple of years, but fortunately have never needed to use it. It takes the place of the bivy and the bag. I bought the bright orange one.

    All of my winter boots keep me warm when moving but start to fail if I stop for extended periods. For an unexpected lengthly stay or overnight, I've been recently bringing along down booties, along with the extra socks.

    55 gallon garbage bags or barrel liners. You can use them for lots of things.
