About Me I grew up car camping and started backpacking while in Boy Scouts. My pack was always #40 plus. The last trip I went on my pack was #35 and that was with my wife hauling some of the gear. We have since been dropping pack weight.

Silk Pajamas
I use silk pants and bottoms now rather than a liner. They have more uses and I feel like they are warmer. I do not think they raise the temp rating 15 degs though.

Base Layer
I also wear silk base layers to bed. I just could not get my liner to stay where I wanted it throughout the night.

I have the cloudburst. It works great for me, but is too small when backpacking with my wife. To fit our bags in it we end up sleeping on the side vents, therefore not being able to use the batht...

Not my wife
I got my wife one this season and she does not like it. Now I will need to sell it. We ended up getting her the new REI pack, which she does like a lot. She just did not like the frameless aspec...
