    I don't know, I read that the Momentum Tafetta is not that much softer in the hand than the regular Momentum MR. I think they are the same weight. I think MLD designed their quilts to be reversible or something and the Tafetta drapes against the body better. I just guessed that the Momentum MR would be a little warmer, having less air permeability, but don't know.

    I'm hoping to get a decent range, for my Ozark trail season, out of the quilt, from early April- early June, (no summer hiking here!) and late Sept - late October.

    Does anyone know if the Climashield Apex insulation will be available soon?

    The third hand story my bad memory remembers is that it is under an exclusive contract to a few manufacturers and would probably not be available to the public in the near future. MLD got their hands on some, somehow.

    I called and talked extensively with the sales rep at Climashield last week. Apex was developed for a company (and that may be MLD--no confirmation of that) and when they develop a new product to a set of specs, the company requesting the development has the option of holding an exclusivity license on the product for a set term. I tried to get the time line on when that would expire and Apex would be openly available, no dice. I got could be sooner than latter but also got impressions that it may be late in the year if this year at all. I have his direct number and was told to check back often for updates. As soon as I can get my hands on it or a set time I will get it in and make it available for DIY along with updating KAQ.
