"much higher "R" value and easier to blow up. "
Ryan F said
"I would just like to note that I dont recomend blowing into a down filled air matress because of the moisture.
[Gee, do you think you are the only one that ever had that thought]
so just from looking
[looking at what/where Ryan F.??]
"I think the exped would be a better choice because the stuf sack acts as a pump so you dont harm your precious down
["harm my precious down?? that doesn't sound very friendly Ryan F] [I even use a small air pump on my Home-Made DAM]

[As far as looking at the Moontrail web site, they are located maybe about 12 miles from my house and I have seen and touched most everything they have that I had any interest in. I have been there 5 or 6 times in the last few months and have another visit planned soon.]
"but I dont use either of theese so I would recomend using a combo of a Gossamer gear thinlight and thermarest ridgerest for a warm pad"
[been there done that. My interest is in sleeping warm in my Hammock down to at least 0 degrees. The DAM helps me do that without all the underpad/overpad stuff.]
Ryan F: Maybe it just your age, I was beginning to think you were a very bright and well read young man. You don't seem to know anything about how the Warmlite DAM works. "IF" you HAD any creditability I think you have now lost a lot of it. If you do some real research and check out the Warmlite web site you might get a surprise, I expect you will get more than one surprise.
So Ryan F. we all say/write things that sometimes come back to bit us. It has also happened to me at least once in my life, I think. We get over it, you have done good here, I think we all still like you.
As a side note, you may not be old enough to look at the Warmlite web site. I only say that so no one can say I didn't warn you.
