1. Any idea how much lighter the Dynaglide WS's are compared to both the stock strap and cinch buckle suspension that comes with a WBBB as well as 7/64th Amsteel Whoopies? I'm sure the latter is meere grams, but just curious.
2. OES Micro. If a heavy summer shower rolled in, how would you feel being under it? For me, the line is not between "comfortable" and "acceptable," but between "acceptable" and "why am I getting wet?" Hahaha. As long as it will keep me dry in a heavy rain (I'll take a little bit of wind blown rain if I have to, especially if it's summer and warm) then it sounds great to me.
3. That DIY UQ... IX? Down? Whatcha got? I'm thinking about making a summer UQ out of two layers of IX, and am curious as to what its finished weight will be like.
I've already got my summer base weight down to sub-8 pounds, but thats with a WBBB DL 1.0 (with stock straps) and a Sil WB Edge. (Total it's somewhere around 2.5 lbs.) At this point, I'm well within the realm of "acceptable" weight in my mind. If I were going on a trip with friends for a night or two, I'd definitely bring a few luxury items without feeling overburdened. The only reason I ask any of this is cause, like any decent gear head, I'm curious as to how far I can push it, and it still all "work."
