It is 4 layers of Climashield XP 2.5oz. Hard to measure the thickness, but probably around 2". It's had a hard life; most of it's days were spent cramed in the bottom of a pack. Lost some loft as a result. It has it's own rubbermaid storage container now.
Still works very well for me, but to be totally honest I am a very warm sleeper. I figure I'm comfortable about 15 or so degrees colder than most folks.
I don't think I'll ever go back to a full size UQ when hiking. This concept is just too efficient to pass on. I still fight my girlfriend over the SnugFit when car camping, but as you can probably guess, I end-up in a torso length UQ when it's all said and done.
