Downmat 7 (long) with the SPE and it is GREAT!!!! I have been too
warm at 14F - meaning that I had to get OUT of my 5F slpg. bag and
just throw it over me as a top blanket. For Springer, I used Mr.
Speer's "FrogSac" as a top blanket and I was toasty!
Fabric: Top is non-slippery and kinda like fleece in wicking. Bottom
is also non-slippery
I use it INSIDE a Speer and it does allow you to ride a bit "higher"
and it causes the Speer to "wrap" around you a bit - thus the SPE.
No experience with the Warmlite. Co$t steered me to the Exped.
