      Tim...? Understand what Dave is talking about now?

      The SPE "BODY with stretch bottom" holds a 20" wide pad of most any
      thickness. Exped DAM fits in there easily or a T-rest plus Blue cc.

      The SPE "wings" are in TWO different configurations. If you're skinny
      and don't need that extra width in the shoulders, one set of "wings"
      (4 in all) works fine. If you are wide across the shoulders, you
      probably need the extra 4... Make sense...?

      I know I posted this before; but, I am so impressed with how well it
      worked for me! NO COLD SPOTS! (Exped DAM + SPE + blue cc pads in the
      wings) What had concerned me and turned out to be a non-issue was if
      it was going to be "too tight". Of course, I was a bit "higher" in
      the Speer because of the thickness of the DAM; but not a problem. I
      was wrapped "snugly" but not "tightly"...

      Warmer temps, I will definitely use the SPE; but, a gray or blue pad
      versus the Exped DAM.

      I am also pleased with the TOTAL weight! Speer + tarp + SPE + Exped
      DAM + blue cc for the wings + 5F sleeping bag = 7.75 pounds. I am
      getting a quilt and eliminating the slpg. bag which should get that
      down by as much as 2 pounds!

      Thanks, Dave....!!!!!!!!

      Happy Trails,
