    That's why I really dislike sleeping in bags in hammocks.

    Dang, a spindrift JUST sold on the for sale page. I'll look into a quilt protector though.

    Yes I need to study this. Maybe on this trip Ill just get some merino wool base layers to stay warm as suggested by ObdewlaX.

    Thank you so much for the advice!

    Yes, I think that is a must. Also something to keep my head warm.

    It was fun watching you squirm around like a worm in a cocoon!

    Always good to have some hand warmers or something similar you can use to add some heat if you are unsure if you will be warm or cold. Light, cheap and can make a huge difference.

    If anyone is interested in trying out the Spindrift, Brandon of Warbonnet has 3 different first generation ones for sale on his "Blem Accessories" page at a pretty decent discount.

    Piling on with the head insulation comments - very important.

    I use the Costco diamond down quilt folded lengthwise between my 20* UQ and Ridgerunner for extra insulation...been good down to 0*. Then for my feet I bought Amazon $20 goose down booties, they weigh nothing and crazy warm!
