Winter Camping Gear

Backpacker Magazine has published it annual Gear Guide on-line.  While the comprehensive gear review examines all season gear there are evaluations relevant to Winter Camping.  For instance, their review of sleeping bags does single out two models they consider suitable for winter camping: the Marmot Lithium and the Exped Swan.  We all know there are lots of sleeping bags targeted towards winter camping.  The Backpacker Gear Guide does not try to evaluate common winter camping models: Feathered Friends, Western Mountaineering, Mountain Hardware; but it is a start.  Check out Backpacker Magazine online for their reviews of backpacks, footwear, tents, and essentials.  Maybe we should petition them to not just focus on a spring gear guide oriented towards the summer crowd, but a fall gear guide oriented towards winter camping!  Your thoughts?
