There's been a few of these threads ever since the quilts came out, and I'm sorry to rehash it. It's just that no clear conclusion seemed to be reached! Not many people have actually used this... or not many people are posting about it at least.
For the closeout price, it makes me want to get it just to see if it could work for my needs. It's tough though when there is so little info out there about people who have field experience with this quilt.
Is the loft really as thin as .6" like I read in another post? (I think this was just a guess - not measured). From what I've read it seems that XP has superior insulating value per loft unit than PD. I assume that's why the new quilt Ryan mentioned will be XP.
Anyway, if my nighttime temps are going to be around 45-55 F, then that means my daytime temps are going to be sweltering. Railriders Adventure Shirt, RR Ecomesh pants (or regular shorts), and Houdini wind shirt are the only clothing items I bring. If I need supplemental clothing to stay warm at this temp, it is useless for me. (I do sleep warm however). Richard's clo value chart showed this being good to 78F. That is one thin quilt!
Any comments anyone? (And please spare me the "It depends on so many factors...")
