I use a bivy, ground cloth, torso pad and tarp. Most people use a tent, some use a tarp, few use bivies.
Bivy is from the French term "bivouac." It is the term used to describe mountaineers and soldiers making a temporary camp by wrapping themselves up in their woolen blankets or perhaps animal hides. My bivy is more sophisticated than that. It's made of waterproof material on the bottom, water-repellent material on the top, and has no-see-um netting from shoulder to head height. Entry and egress is made possible by zippers which open the top 1/3. My REI Minimalist Bivy is approximately five years old and is RED in color. I recently ordered a Tyvek Ground Cloth to use under my bivy. I will cut it to size [larger than the bivy and round the corners] so that I'm not carrying extra weight. My Silnylon Poncho-Tarp will be held up by my REI Trekking Poles with the use of a new item I found, Trekking Pole Cups. My guy-lines will be light reflective cord, for stakes, I'll use the MSR mini-ground hogs.
As stated, I spent most of yesterday researching WhiteBlaze and Backpacking Lightweight, two websites with Backpacking Forums and all kinds of hiking related information. I looked at a lot of sleeping bags referenced in those two sites.
At the end of the day, I settled on two specific sleeping bags, one from Western Mountaineering and one from Eastern Mountain Sports. Both were high quality goose down and both were in the $369 and UP range. It's not that I don't want to spend money on quality items, it's just that I had that 'gut feeling' that I was missing something.
I had gone to bed but not to sleep when it occurred to me that I had not studied the REI sleeping bags in my research and I got up 'in the middle of the night' and used my iPhone to do some 'stealth web searching.'
And I found what I was looking for: a lightweight women's sleeping bag with polyester on the bottom and a wrap-around top filled with 800-fill goose down. The advantage of this arrangement is that the back-side or bottom of the sleeping bag compresses any insulation up against the sleeping pad. I sleep on my back and do not toss and turn, so this arrangement is not only 'ideal' the price is reasonable. [I use a sleeping pad which went out of production in 2009; a Pacific Outdoor Equipment Uber Lite Torso Pad.]
Tomorrow on to a new adventure: A massage.
