    The Ultamid is rock solid. Have been using it for the last two years in pretty harsh conditions and it still haven't shown any weaknesses. Last summer we used Zpacks bivvys inside but we have now switched to a Bearpawwd inner. Good stuff.

    Movies here from Jotunheimen and Iceland where we had a couple of windy nights.

    Here are some pics, it has one of the water bottle pockets and the top lid removed, I use it this way most often. I also have a cheapo Rei pack I use during the summer.

    Newbie to these forums but thought I'd add my current top ten list (in likely hope of getting some good kit suggestions for 'upgrades' ?!)

    1. Pack = Laufbursche Huckepack (older dyneema gridstop version)
    2. Shelter = MLD Trailstar (2OookStar inner)
    3. Sleeping Bag or Quilt = currently either a PHD Minimus Long or fairly crappy old ME Dreamcatcher 500 but am looking to upgrade to a Katabatic Alsek Quilt or ??
    4. Mat = Exped Downmat UL7 M
    5. Stove = TD 12-10 / Modified Zelph Starlyte
    6. Cookset = Sidewinder Ti-Tri with Inferno, Evernew 1.3l (as my wife and I are usually together on trips - can't decide whether it's worth getting a separate ti-tri for my 0.9l evernew...)
    7. Clothing Shell = OMM Cypher Jacket
    8. Clothing Insulation = PHD Yukon - custom with zip-off sleeves (purchased from Stephen at Outdoors Magic)
    9. Footwear = La Sportiva Primer
    10. Gizmo = dunno really - suppose Samsumg Note 4 phone and (+ powerpack if going away for more than couple days)
