Have tried that one. Been stuck on the SmokeJumper from Left Hand. We'll be there tomorrow night so I'll break out and order the Mercenary.

I second the Paco Pad.. have had one for about 8 years now, and it is Thicker and more durable than a Thermarest.... A friend of mine who river rafts lent me one once, and i was hooked....

Fridge, Thermarest pad, RTT -all great choices! My absolute favorite, though, is a quart size plastic jar that seals VERY tightly. Don't need to show a picture as you can use whatever one you can find. A Metamucil jar works for me. Having an RTT and being a beer drinker like Uncle Ben, you can see the practicality of this item in the middle of the night when you don't want to fall down the ladder of the tent. Only took one fall like that to convince me of the value of the jar.

Only a quart size? How many do you have?

Forever skiers and climbers and boaters and hikers have demoted an old Nalgene to this exact duty. It also serves to retain heat during winter camping. The first time, well you question your trust of the mentor.

Dude, you need a UriNalgene that is entirely different from your potable water Nalgene. Unless you believe your flashlight will ALWAYS work when you need it...
