Basically the current models have more loft (thus greater warmth) & lighter-weight fabrics. The fabrics used for the shells now are more consistent in color & weight than previous models. Ask about the color---if it’s all gray it could be the same as the new ones; if it’s gray inside/forest green outside, it’s probably a few ounces heavier than the new ones. ..........

    Mine is Forest( I guess.. dark anyway) green outside and gray inside. However, it is a "3" or "III" model, 900FP with 2 oz overstuff. I notice that Ed has dropped the "3" designation. But the current specs are identical to the one he snt me, and mine weighs 42 oz and has at least as much loft as he advertises.

    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    That is exactly the same specs as mine, except color. Prepare to be warm.

    I'm a warm sleeper, so I'm going to have to find out how to vent a peapod.

    I like the idea of letting one side hang down when it's warm. Kinda like scandalizing your mainsail, or sailing by the lee, in order to slow down in strong winds.
