    I love my hydrophobic down quilts. I've never had any real issue with the quilts becoming wet, other than when it's 100% humidity - and then, everything's wet anyway.

    And even if you lose your tent stakes, you can always make tent stakes out of wooden sticks. However, if your guylines are with your stakes, then you have a real problem.

    I don't quite understand that rationale. If the guylines are always on the tarp, then you can't lose them. Also, if it rains, then when you get home and dry the tarp out, the guylines also dry out....

    I've personally never been tempted to get tarp tie-out hardware - my guylines are permanently larksheaded onto the tarp, and then I just use a marlin spike hitch on the stake.

    One reason I would never even consider a Draumr is that a pad is essential, and the pad is a vapor barrier. I can't deal with any kind of pad because of condensation, or sweat, or whatever you want...

    Google tells me that 15* Celsius is 59* Fahrenheit. From my perspective, 10* quilts in that temperature are just ridiculous. Forget backpacking with that setup in summer or winter.
