    I am actually planning a summer UQ project myself. I have purchased the Climashield for all my projects from thru-hiker and just assumed I'd get some 2.5oz from there. I was going to send you that way, but I checked first and they don't have the 2.50z listed, just the 5oz. I sent an email to inquire if it would be back.

    Outdoor Wilderness Fabrics is the only other place I know of where you can get Climashield retail. Their price is a bit higher than thru-hiker but they have a variety of types/weights.

    Interestingly they have APEX in 3.3 oz and 6 oz. That makes me wonder if they have perhaps changed the weights the produce this in. 3.3 would but just a bit heavier than the Combat (which is 2.8). That would provide a little additional range with that and I probably still would not be to warm for summer use. I have a summer UQ I with Combat and there have been a few summer nights where I was just a bit chilly. An extra .5 oz would have done the trick.

    Thanks. Ya if I cannot find any here I will go with the 3.3 from owl. I am modifying a quilt that already has some synthetic insulation so I was looking for a low weight climashield since I am only trying to increase the temp range a little bit.
