Yeah, the planned use of my sleep system is going to be mostly for 2-3 day outings (so, 1-2 nights), and not usually (if at all) for flat out winter camping. Though, obviously, I would like it to be useful for longer/colder trips as well.
I'm mostly concerned about all of that unpredictable weather you hear about people encountering up in the mountains - not so much mountains in New England (though it happens here too), but more so about say, in the Rockies or in the Cascades, since I eventually plan to live out that way again.
My Rainshadow 2, well, I haven't had it long enough to test it, but from what I've read, it's good with condensation. There's not much flat space on the roof, and it pitches fairly tautly, with steep enough sides that I don't anticipate dripping to be an issue, especially if I keep a watch on the tautness of the tent when humidity changes...
And not to get too risque, but with regards to VB clothing, and sleeping in it - well, I tend not to like to sleep in anything (clothing gets all tangled up around my legs and arm-pits, etc), and while I can imagine accepting that I may have to sleep in SOME layers in the cold to stay warm enough (or to avoid having to get dressed from a naked state in the morning), I think it would be much harder to adjust to sleeping in VB clothing (as opposed to say, wool or capilene). So I guess my question is, does VB clothing really offer substantial advantages over a VB liner (which wouldn't get all tangled up around me like clothing will)?
Edit: Ok, gave the VB clothing thing more thought. Seems like it DOES offer lots more flexibility: say for example, I have a sleep system that keeps me comfortable down to 0F, without any clothing used, but freak weather drops the temp down to -10F or -20F. If I had VB CLOTHING, I could safely add insulating layers, like a jacket, over my VB clothing, to increase insulation, without being in danger of soaking the extra insulation (since VB is next to my skin). On the other hand, if I have a VB liner, any insulation I need to add could get soaked because the VB liner is now keeping the humidity in with me AND my extra insulation.
Sorry - didn't mean to be slow to catch on there.
Guess that means one less zipper I need to worry about incorporating :-)
That said - is there any VB fabric/clothing that could vague feel like pajamas? Somehow I doubt it...
