I'm going to Sequoia Kings Canyon in September wiith 3 friends. The average temp at night is supposed to be in the mid 40s but can, on occasion, get down to the low 20s. Unfortunately I'll be leaving the hammock home on this trip (Blasphemy! I know) and sharing a 2p tent with one of my buddies.
My question is... Does anyone have experience using the 3-Season burrow in a tent with a pad? I'm a cold side sleeper that tends to toss and turn frequently (not so much in the hammock, though). I like the idea of bringing the quilt as it is lighter and less confining than a bag. I'm just worried the quilt might be too drafty making the potential low's a little risky.
The 3 guys I'm going with have much more backpacking experience (especially in this environment) than I do and they've somewhat poo-pooed my idea (they still haven't accepted the hammock either. So it may just be quilt-ignorance on their part). I just don't want to regret my decision (at 10,000 feet) and wind up being the cold, weak link.
What do you think... Will the quilt & pad combo work or should I borrow/purchase a bag?
