I ordered a air pad that is 21-1/2 x 72 and has good reviews , it is pretty light at 16oz. Going to use along with my Z-rest so if my pad gets a leak I still have the Z-rest. Have never used a air pad so I figured this way I’m covered , my thought is this pad and my Z-rest weigh about the same as the high priced air pads with the same R value also for a 1/4 of the price.

I really enjoy getting ready for trips...

A couple small items I've found to be handy in a camping trip are nail clippers, dental floss, and a small tweezers.  After having ragged finger nails catching on stuff, a piece of meat stuck in your teeth for a couple days, and splinters in your hands you realize how a little discomfort over several days adds up! And these items can all serve multiple purposes on a pack trip!

As long as you aren't lung cap. challenged you don't need a pump.  It is a large amount of air.  I can do both of ours [my wife's and mine with no issues]  You shouldn't have a problem.  The insulation has silver in it to keep stuff from growing.  So no worries on that front either.

Now that I have looked at it, read some reviews and found out a hunting Buddy had one... I will probably go ahead and get the Qcore air pad and the Pumphouse bag. My Bud who has the whole set up not only uses it for hunting but is a big Dual Sport rider. He says the Pumphouse bag doubles as a stuff sack/dry bag and is very light weight.

2 months and a day for us here in Utah.  Two and a half for most everywhere else.  Coming up quick.  My new quiver should be in tomorrow.  Looking forward to it.

I didn't know if I was going for sure or not this year, but I talked it over with my wife and we are gonna be hunting in Utah. Can't wait to see some new country. I've got an area picked out and have been going over the maps. Just gotta keep working out and make sure we have everything for our packs. Hopefully we don't have to buy much of anything else.

Going over my pack today getting things in order also just got me a new gift in the mail from South at Stalker StickBows. So looks like I have my bow for elk this year , will be carrying a new Jackal longbow and Surewoods of my own make.

Thanks for a fine bow South it is the prettiest bow I have ever owned and shoots as good as it looks...

I just recently got one of South's bows. A Coyote for me.  It's a shooter for sure.

I've had that Dark Energy charger for a couple of seasons.  Really like it.
