    Where are you going with this Syberia? I've slept down in the teens with my BlackRock hat and had no issues at all and I'm a very cold sleeper. That "getup" should take you into the -30's with no problem

    Siberia, now that would be fun. It might not get that cold here, but it's gets cold enough for me to need a -10° quilt set so this is the perfect way to keep even more precious body heat in. I wonder what HG would rate it at? It's sewn through, but the volume of down would make up for it I think.

    REALLY wish I would have seen this about a month or so ago when i was deciding on one to buy...oh well. I bought a cheapy that I'm not happy with, so maybe i can get this one down the road. I may have missed it, but i don't think i see a picture of it in the stuff sack. kind of curious how small that huge hood gets to.

    **UPDATE**

    So I used the hood last night ( well, very early this morning) and it was awesome. I tried to wear it while getting settled in and watching a movie on my kindle , but I was still warm from just having come out of the house and started to get hot. That was around 930 and 23-24°. I ended up putting it inside my TQ with me to keep it frost free until I needed it. At around 330 my beanie had come off and my HF butt had slid down around my neck , my head & face were so cold theyhurt lol, it was 20°. With the cold cutting through my head like 1,000 knives and still half asleep I got out the hood and got it on with relative ease. The cord locks were easy to find and adjust. I cinched it down just enough so all sides were barely touching my head , pulled my Buff up to my nose and eventually fell asleep again once I warmed up a little and was comfortable again. This time, I stayed asleep until I woke up around 7 , it was 18°.

    The hood stayed in place relatively well and only need small adjusting when I turned my head sideways. My 20° Burrow also kept a nice seal and didn't come untucked at all at the head end. I did find that the area of the TQ in front of my face was wet, but the hood stayed dry. Overall I'd say it did extremely well and once it was cold enough didn't cause any problems with overheating or comfort. Getting my pillow in the right place was tricky at first but it stayed put once it was. This is definitely something that isn't for everyone, and for me is only to be used below 20°. But I can definitely see using it quite a bit this winter and feel it was more than worth the $60. The key is to only cinch it enough to keep just the right amount of heat in while allowing in to vent slightly ( at "higher" temps anyway), just like using a 30° UQ when it's in the 50's. I think this will definitely make a good addition to many peoples deep winter kit.

    No stuff sack, but I'll put it in one and take a pic today at some point.
