The 15° Arc Alpinist is a hoodless mummy - or zippered quilt - and besides confusion over its identity,
also a supremely adaptable piece of gear. Read more here
Alpinist Mummy with Gamut Synthetic Over-quilt
Perhaps most important, the synthetic over-quilt protects the down from damp tent walls, or light rain and spray, as experienced under UL tarps. Condensing body moisture, so prevalent during winter adventures, settle on the easily dried over quilt instead of the down filled inner bag.
The Alpinist and Gamut Quilt are designed to work as a unit, with the correct sizing relationship to maintain crucial loft. The strap placements and neck closure of the quilt work together with the mummy to make exit and entry simple.
Total weight of the package pictured is 2lbs 13oz.
To further dial in specific needs, the Alpinist is offered in 20° and 40° versions, while the Gamut Quilt is available with 35°, 42° or 50° fill options.
A 40°/42° setup combining the Alpinist and Gamut would create an incredibly versatile sleep system, suitable for anything save the depth of winter. All at weight of just over 2 lbs.

Ultralight backpacking - a moniker defining, among other things, the upper weight limit of one's base equipment (everything carried minus food and water). As an example, some sources state a UL kit must be below 10 lbs.Read More
For a while now I have toyed with the idea of a really big cross country loop starting and ending in or near Moab (where Nunatak HQ is located!). With inspiration from many shorter trips over the years, confirming water sources and sketchy passages, the pieces are now starting to fall in place. However there's still 'blank' spots on my map.Read More
