Rainy Pass
Another vote for Rainy Pass, if you want to have it repaired. I agree REI will take it back. If you think the tear was due to poor material, then take it back. If you think you caused it, it up...

I prefer a liner
I have a silk liner that weighs about 4 ounces (maybe less). I always use it. Sometimes I have a base layer on also, if it is cold enough. Use what you like. I prefer to sleep in less clothing, ...

Osprey Aether
Another vote for the Osprey Aether line. They come in 60, 70 and 85 liters. I have the 60 and use it more than other packs because it is so comfy.

I had Rainy Pass in Seattle wash my Marmot bag. I mailed it on Monday, had it back Thursday. (I'm only 1-day UPS transit from them). You might check that out.
