Unofficial results of backyard test hang with new XL New River so far:
Thermometer shows 48* @ 8:30pm CST
BB hammock with netting thrown over ridgeline. I'm looking up at the stars!
XL New River beneath the BB. Nothing else.
I'm in shorts, t-shirt, bald as a Telly Savalas, and no socks.
No TQ, no sheet, no blanket, nothing on top. Zilch. Nada. Just the night air.
I'm as snug as a bug in a rug!
Been outside for 20 minutes. Enough for body temp to stabilize and adjust. Nothing but warmth below me!
This is encouraging!
Okay, so it's not exactly Arctic conditions out there...but it just proves to me how warm my XL New River is going to be. If I'm comfortable in the above conditions, and I absolutely HATE being cold, then there's no telling how low I'll be able to go with the XL below me for insulation.
The saga continues later with more updates as the temps continue to dip. If I break out my matching AHE Owyhee TQ in Woodland Camo, I might not be able to find the hammock in my own backyard!
