I've got a couple of newbie questions for the group. So far I've been using a 24" wide ccf pad. Its worked ok so far, but I feel like I have to sleep with my arms folded across me and me legs straight to stay warm. I'm considering making my own SPE type thing or a DIY 3/4 underquilt. I can't afford one from the cottage guys as they are almost $200 or more.
I know some of the 2/3 underquilts like the yeti don't insulate the head area. Are there others that do? Is it that there is a problem sealing up the end? I ususally don't carry a pillow. I just fold over my sweatshirt once and use that. I'm not sure that would be enough if the head area wasn't insulated.
Qustion 2. Do folks have to adjust their underquilts much if they lay in a position other than on your back. If you roll over onto your side or lay semi-fetal, do you open up air gaps at the ends? Thanks for the help.
