planning a colorado elk hunt in 09,my problem and questions are: I"m 6"5 and 300 pounds sometimes its hard enough to find regular clothes and other gear to fit properly, now I'll need a good sleeping bag if anyone else has this same problem and knows a good solution please let me know.
US Army 4 pc Goretex Modular Sleeping Bag System (type that into google or at ebay)
I don't know much about using these on camping trips, but I used the heck out of mine overseas. I'm 6'-0" and about 250 and didn't have any problem fitting in one of these, but I also know there's a big difference between 6' and 6'-5". I'd try one get your hands on one of the military modular sleeping bag systems. It comes with a light bag, heavy bag, gortex shell, and a compression sack. It's a combo that's hard to beat and they are worth whatever money you spend on one. It's worth a try.
thanks for the replies, after looking around and seeing what some of this stuff costs I'm glad I have 12+months to plan and save$ by the way couse those do look like nice bags, but OMG thats almost the price of my elk tag. thanks again
Sorry to high jack your thread, but i'd like to hear some input on packs. I'm 6'8 and am finding a limited selection of packs that will fit. I'm looking at the EberleStock DragonFly and J107, Nimrod, and Badlands and it seems EberleStock is out front from what i've been able to track down.
