All righty then, interesting results so far, though limited. But it is still way early as I only posted this late last night right before my bed time. Results - not in the comments but in the poll anyway - not as positive as I was anticipating, though not bad and better than in the past if mem serves.
For example, only 50% so far reporting no significant condensation problems. Though oddly, at the same time, zero % reporting "I tried it and had too much condensation, so it is not for me"?
So far, 62.5% who like it or find it to be more than adequate for cost and weight. So, that is at least a majority so far.
So far no one reporting being warm enough with the base system below 20. But again, it is early. And I know of at least 3 or 4 folks - none of them are frequent posters,I guess they are too busy hiking rather than hanging out here
- anyway these folks have (amazingly) taken a base system
to zero or even well below. And sometimes without being uncomfortably cold. That seems impossible to me, but that is what they have said. Maybe they will chime in later.
I am also surprised that only 50%, so far, say "The UC provides significant extra wind/rain/snow/fog protection, which is a big plus! ".
For me that has always been one of the undisputed benefits of this system.But I am jumping the gun with these comments, too early.
Remember, multiple choice! So, for example, you could choose "warm to 40 with base system" AND "warm well below 20 with unworn clothing added to the UC".
