    Knotty, I finished up a 1.1 last week myself. My intention is to take this on my AT thru hike this summer. I am 195 lbs and trying to keep my pack weight down quite low.

    Will post how this holds up over the long haul.

    I'm just not comfortable trustings a single layer 1.1 anymore but that's just me.

    In case you didn't see it, here's another thread I started on the subject.

    Yep, caught that thread. I'll use mine till it blows out, as I do want to see if it can handle it. A few folks with more extensive experience/use than I have had good long term experience.

    I do plan to try using 1.5, but that is more out of interest to see if the comfort changes much.
