My base weight is about 11# right now. I use a full length ridgerest, and GG Mariposa (uses pad as partial support). I have two goals-drop packweight, if possibly, and sleep more comfortably than the ridgerest, which weighs 1#. I can get a 66" NeoAir at 14oz and sleep on a cloud, or learn to get comfortable with a SUL torsolite pad, and perhaps a short chunk of ridgerest for my legs which would go in Mariposa while hiking. Those using the torsolite, is it a learned skill to sleep comfortable on that small of a pad? I roll around while sleeping-side,stomach, and rarely back. Or go with the Neoair, sleep like a dream, and lose the weght elsewhere. Drawback to it being that it is not all that insulated for shoulder season trips, meaning I may have to take something else during that time. As for losing weight elsewhere, I use a 20 deg down bag, and may try the quilt thing someday. Which pad is better if I try a quilt, and what has the learning curve/comfort level been for those using BMW torsolite?
Thanks for the thoughts!
