Other Homemade Gear / Re: DIY synthetic overbag Thinsulate query

In the end I went for something custom made by Nunatak
I have ordered a big overquilt in 3.5ounce APEX synthetic insulation, even tho the cost was high it was about the same as ordering the DIY stuff separately and paying 3 different lots of postage to Australia
Nunatak sewed up a big sleeve in the bottom to fit my winter pad and mattress in so that the foot of the sleeping bag did not slip out of the cover
Only problem is that USPS has lost the damned thing somewhere in Moab, Utah and it never left the country

Just may be something I may have to make up. I get way too much melt. Thanks for the idea.

Winter Camping Clothing / Atuk Anorak?
« Last post by Stormy Kromer on August 13, 2017, 12:50:06 pm »
Hello fellow trekkers,

Recently I took delivery of an Atuk Alaskan tent.  Guy does wonderful work.  The tent is well constructed and I am eager to get some smoke and soot on my canvas this winter!

I've been eyeing the anorak posted on his website.  It's a 35/65 cotton poly ripstop material.  Has anybody purchased one or viewed one up close?  I'm wondering how it stacks up to the Empire Canvas Arctic Anorak.  The price point certainly favours the Atuk.

Thoughts?  Comments?

I'm very much interested in this as well. I live in Northern Ontario ish, and can confirm there is a plethora of incredible crown land that hasn't been touched in dozens of years. Lots of great places to explore. However, I appreciate the idea of the "one in a life time" type trip. WCPP is on my bucket list for sure. Keep me posted if you could.

Cheers,
TRW

This is something I'm very much interested in as well. I was actually hoping to bring something like this up to  everyone at Deep Freeze to guage interest. WCPP has been on my list of places to camp for quite some time. I'm interested in how this plays out. Keep me posted if possible.

I have a hot tent and a stove and all my own winter gear. I'm currently a wilderness guide, so I have lots of experience in places like Algonquin, Temagami, French River, Killarney, Kawartha Highlands etc. Never had the chance to get to Woodlands Caribou though.

Cheers,

We call it "The LOOK" in our house.
I GOT IT THIS MORNING.
THE DAY ROOM FLOOR JUST HAPPENED TO HAVE 5 SLEEPING BAGS OUT FOR INSPECTION.
 I couldn't see what was wrong but apparently I'm not supposed to do this while the Boss is around, heck I thought she knew I had all this stuff
