My Locale Wet & Humid Southeast....
About Me My stomping grounds are the SE US, and 90% of the time, somewhere on the AT in GA, TN, or NC. Other times I enjoy going to the Smokies, or other smaller wilderness areas such as the Savage Gulf area.
Most of my trips are between 2 - 5 days long, with rare 7 day long trips. My total pack weights are generally under 20 lbs, unless trying new gear, or carrying extra for the kids. In the dead of summer, I enjoy SUL hikes, and have given thought to XUL (almost there...)

Re: polycryo?
I agree about going with polycro... it is much less expensive, will weigh the same, if not less (depending on what thickness cuben you use) and will last about the same length of time...

Re: Relenting on NeoAir XLITE
I love the NeoAir design in general, and for me, they are my favorite. I started with the original and loved it. Most comfy of any other pad (to me). Lighter than others. Packed small. 2+ ye...
