Does anyone ever wish when they travel they could rent a high end road bike and get a guide to show them the local routes that are the best and safest in that area?
The glacier route sounds brilliant, though I am not exactly a svelt or accomplished cyclist. 4 passes in 4 days might leave me crying into my cup of tea but this is supposed to be an adventure so appeals greatly. I will leave that thought whirling around my noggin whilst I investigate all of the many other alternatives suggested.
That said, I'm eagerly waiting to hear from somebody who's tried one of the new "coated down" bags to see (a) if they live up to the waterproof hype, and (b) how long the super-duper-water-repellent coating lasts in the field.
Are you asking about the bags with a DWR shell or the new treated down. If you are talking a DWR shell I can comment on that.
When you have to carry the gear with your own muscles and have limited space like panniers or a backpack, DOWN sleeping bags are the choice. Small and traveling on your bike with a synthetic sleeping bag? Good luck.
