Hello, all. Looking for some cooler weather advice. I have a AHE/KAQ Lost River 3-season 2/3 UQ with my Speer hammock. The AHE site says it will get most users into the 30s. I had it out on Friday, and I am estimating that the temp got down to about 40. I had "medium weight" long johns on with a fleece vest, and was using a sleeping bag as a top quilt. It's a down bag and let's say it has a 20 deg. limit (my top was pretty warm and I had to vent from time to time during the night). For the most part, the UQ worked well. A couple of times, my butt (and really, nothing else - my torso and feet stayed warm) got cold as I was mostly sleeping on my back. It wasn't bad enough that I actually got up and did something about it, but I was getting pretty uncomfortable.
So this weekend, I will be out again, and temps are looking like they will be a little cooler, and I am trying to figure out the best strategy for CBS (cold butt syndrome, of course). Is this a problem that you have dealt with? Is it a problem with how I am hanging the UQ? It seems tight around the shoulders, but it's harder to tell what is happening at the foot end. Would it help to lay a CCF pad in the UQ? Fleece pants instead of long johns? I carry an Adventure Medical "Heat sheet." Will it help to lay that between the UQ and the hammock? Other options without increasing weight too much, as this weekend I'll be backpacking. Thanks for your thoughts.
