I have a Meteor Light and it has always come through for me- past couple of
years exploring Colorado's high country.  The 96 model has several
improvements over previous models, so I would suggest making sure you get a
new model and not some 95 they are trying to unload- one of those
cost/benefit decisions.  Personally, as I'm soloing, I was planning on just
bringing my OR Bivy Sack.  Jason
