Valandre
What about a custom made Nunatak ARC Alpinist? To be honest I have never heard of Valandre. At 22oz with 800 down fill and a 20 degrees temp. Hard to beet!!

FS: WM Linlite
You are correct Chris--I want a Nunatak Arc Specialist or Alpinest. The Linelite has been slept in about 12 times since 2006. I am looking for something warmer and lighter. Ultralite Sicknes!
