I ordered a Hammock Gear Pheonix Underquilt last night. I am excited to receive it, but imagine it won't arrive to me in Japan until sometime in August. However, I am planning on heading out on a 4 day hike in a few weeks, and want to use my hammock. I am guessing that we will hit around around 60F in the evenings, but want to prepare for the possibility of colder weather.
I am considering purchasing an Isuka Pilgram sleeping bag, and thought that I could use it as a hammock pod until the HG arrived. However, I wanted to get some opinions about it working the way I hope based on the product descriptions.
Does this seem big enough to work as a pod on a 10.5 Half-Wit Hammock with a 6'2" hanger?
Specs indicate that it is 80cm x 215cm (31.5" x 84.5") with 720FP down. It weighs 470g and is rated to 50F.
At $140 it seems like a good deal.
It has a nylon construction with a full length zipper.
My biggest concern is how I will get the hood to stay against the hammock. I don't want to make any radical changes to it as I would like to use it as an extra top layer if needed once I get the HG.
Anyway, any thoughts on the sizing would be appreciated.
