    From what I read, the latter is definitely the case. But I don't think it's one of those deals where a well-known maker has some private label business. I think those walmart poles are pretty heavy...

    Was it hydrophobically-treated down (as most mainstream makers use these days)? From what I've read - and one bag I've seen in person - it has a reputation for being prone to clumping, whatever its...

    Quite a bit, actually. For comparison, let's just look at the regular size (20" x 72") of Z-lite vs. Ridgerest classic, since the Z-lite doesn't come in wide or long, AFAIK.

    I largely agree. This is a classic "know thyself" situation. When I began hiking ... it was more of a resumption after a 30 year layoff. So I bought gear, and it has not sat unused. But I had done it...

    IIRC, the Skyscape isn't a true double wall, it's a hybrid. The sides are (in essence) double-walled, but the "roof" is single-layer fly with no netting.
