Does anyone use the Garlington insulator underquilt? What are your thoughts and experiences on this? To me, it seems like a cheap, lightweight, and effective solution which has the advantage in the cheap and lightweight categories over a traditional down or synthetic underquilt.
The description says it's been tested to 5* F (along with two pads), but I wonder if sticking the pads to the outside of the hammock bottom with velcro would be almost as effective?
I just finished making a Speer hammock for backpacking and family camping. (Actually, I made my daughter one too, since I wasn't paying attention and cut the first one 2 ft too short for me. )
I don't really like the idea of sleeping on a pad (aversion to being sweaty and stuck while sleeping), and I'd like to avoid carrying two quilts.
