I know with the WBBB, I thought the 1.1dbl was more comfortable that the 1.7dbl, and most people seem to prefer the lay of the lightest fabric they can as long as they're within the weight limit of the fabric.
Does the same hold true for the Switchback, or does the different, flatter lay change that for the SB?
I am 6' and 165 lbs. What is everyone close to my size using?
5'9" 185# Have a 1.9 single SB Classic and love it. I would have bought a 1.7 single if they had offered one at the time.
I see no reason to get a double unless you want to use a pad between the layers. A second layer adds a lot of weight which might be an issue if you're backpacking.
Just my $0.02
