Cheap Synthetic Puffy!
Got one. As Eric described, mine weighs 17oz in medium. I would also agree that the insulation is probably in the 80g/m+ range. Much warmer than my Thermawrap, good down to about freezing with ...

Warranty Replacement Options
POE offered to replace it with one of their much heavier Adventurer series pads. I inquired and may be able to get the last Peak Oyl Elite Uber they have. It should still be useful as it is very si...

Free Bump
I would jump all over this but already got an Apache earlier this year! For only 3oz more than an Ultralight, the Apache has the better Microfiber shell and is 5 degrees warmer. Good bag for a good...

Why can't I get a replacement pad like the rest of you?
