comment Warmth of two sleeping bags
@ppl - yes indeed, I didn't see the part about two identical bags. I've seen weird results with compressed down though - some things suggest that (in jackets at least) volume of down is almost as important as loft... so it just goes to show you actually have to test your own setup!

comment What type of mosquito repellent is most effective?
FWIW, I did mention permethrin briefly in my answer... and that ultimately I just prefer to wear mozzy-proof clothes :)

comment Backup prusik for Abseiling: Where does it go?
Emphasis on NEVER enter the descender. If you let that happen, you are in serious trouble. For this reason, some (very cautious) people extend their descender further "uphill" from their belay loop so there is absolutely no chance of this happening.

comment How does Frogg Toggs Polypropylene measure up?
A note on durability - I bought two sets of jackets and pants, and ripped the seat out of both of them before I even got to the trail :) I think it was mostly a fit issue though, I found that I was swimming in the jacket, but the pants fit snugly. YMMV!

reframing the words, I thought this should look more sensible.

comment What are the major difference between a regular sleeping bag and one designed for women?
The cut of the bag is often different as well - more room in the hip area. Look at the lengths too - "Long" in a womens bag is quite different than "Long" in a mens bag.
