About the gear:

Sleeping bags. These were all our original ideas and we definitely didn’t have any help or sourced from Backpacker Magazine. 🙂

About our topic:

Our topic comes from a book Adam has been reading called, “Nothing Superfluous“. It’s a mindblowing book that shows how we receive each gift of the Holy Spirit during a specific part of the Holy Mass in order to receive the necessary grace to pray the Holy Mass well.

Drinking: Talisker 10 Year

Gear: Sleeping Bags

    Whats up Catholic Man Show! So this is completely personal preference, but I could not help but comment on your dialog about outdoor gear. *Incoming personal bias in 3…2…1″ Get rid of the mummy bag. They are terrible, stuffy, and generally heavier than some other options. I have sworn by quilts now, for they are much MUCH more versatile, and can keep you just as warm if you get the right accompanying components (down beanie, booties, etc.)

    Below are my recommended quilts if you are interested:

    I cannot recommend these guys enough! My EE Revelation is so versatile, and I have used it anywhere from humid Texas springtime to cold Rocky Mountain fall nights (temp range 20F-70F)

    If you need a bag to keep you comfy during the hot and humid summer nights down here in the south, the REI TravelSac is also a good option. Its more of a bag liner that also is pretty warm in Spring Fall (Temp range 50F+)

    Keep up the awesome work! You guys are in my prayers!
