Seems impossible with no recharge? I mean, turn it off... that'll make it last :)

comment What sleeping bags are needed for a northbound thru-hike of the AT
Yeah, fair enough - I think the Q specified that money wasn't an object, so I rolled with that. There are definitely reasonable budget-conscious alternatives!

GoLite falls below the listed companies IMO - bags are a bit heavier for the same temp rating, people seem to find their ratings to be optimistic too, and the half-center zips are weird/not ideal for the wide range of temperatures seen on a thru-hike.

Lots of good stuff from you and phidauex. I think I'm likely to aim for this more than a tele setup since I'm not keen on the downhill aspect. Somewhere to start from at least!

My backpack and contents, not what I'm wearing... boots + snowshoes and hiking clothes are extra :)

Yikes, considering my whole rest of my winter camping gear is around 16lbs, that seems hilariously heavy :) Nonetheless, I appreciate the detailed advice!

@furtive, I suppose I should have made it clearer above that I'm aware it's not healthy :)

Yep Justin, I agree that this is a good question and definitely different than the one I had!

I asked a similar question to this by the way - more about prevention than controlling symptoms - outdoors.stackexchange.com/questions/596/…
