      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Sleeping Bag - event vs epic fabrics

Recommended Posts

Hey folks,

 

I'm about to order a the FF Ptarmigan for my Denali expedition, and I'm wondering if some folks with experience can weigh in on which of these two fabrics (event vs epic) would be most ideal for both this expedition and general use.

 

I've heard nothing but great remarks about event, but I don't know much of anything about epic, nor do I know how the two fabrics compare. And, I'd rather get some experiential advice than have to take the companies at their word.

 

Thanks in advance!

I have a FF Widgeon with Epic fabric that I used on Denali. I thought it worked fine, shed spilled liquids well and allowed perspiration to escape.

I knew I could count on you guys!

 

haha (j/k)... but seriously, can anybody objectively lay down the pros/cons? All of my research leads me to the manufacturers themselves, and on an investment this big I'd like to get some experiential advice.

 

 

Thanks,

Ambys

Well I spoke to FF and elected to go with eVent. It appears to be a little more water proof, and they're pre-stocked that way so I don't have to wait. Thanks to those who chimed in!
