BTW, the coldest I have been out hanging is -25C or -13 F. To me that is 'very cold' but not 'extremely cold'.

Good one! Like you say, they are relative terms. While I'm freezing wearing every item of clothing I have, you would probably be standing around in flip flops, t-shirt, shorts, and chewing on ice trying to stay cool. I suspect you would be the better judge at determining when and how to use vapor barriers at 'cold' and 'extremely' cold conditions... whatever they are defined to be. My personal points of reference are probably shifted by 30F from yours.
What are your thoughts on vapor barriers?
