    My next dopey question.
    Anyone using one and could tell me please if the user levels match the Company specs or whether you have to boost your clothing ''unreasonably' to get there.
    The Liteline Cumulus 400 specs say -'2 degrees COMFORT' and 'minus four for LIMIT'.
    Any female users (or anyone) think the 2 is rightish or anyone think the minus four is rightish? My adult daughter may also use it.
    My 150 (190/OF) quilt seems about right for the 'Comfort' or a bit beyond I was quoted, rather than the 'Limit'.
    Thanks for any help.

    I've got a Liteline 300, comfort level listed as 4°, limit 0°. I use it for summer hikes at altitude, most of the time it's on the warm side, 'cos I sleep hot, just in my undies I'm fine to about 5°, leggings, t-shirt & socks below that.

    Friend has a LL400.
    It's nicer/loftierlooks plenty warmer than our Alpkit Pipedream 400s which are 750fp and rated - 3 lower comfort. Great quality like all cumulus gear.

    Thanks very much. I've oft looked at that model but feared that I mightn't be able to get it to work when it's around zero or a bit past. Just wish I could see one up close. Their stuff that I own, including two pieces of clothing is excellent, I concur. I'm all over the shop trying every idea. Getting a quote on a Long 350 quilt should have 380 gms of down and will go over my head. My next dopey plan.
