I was out in temps ~38* and used a 40* 3/4 length UQ. I wasn’t expecting the temps to dip below 45, but Mother Nature had other ideas.
On my feet I was wearing lightweight wool socks. Under my feet I used a 20in x 20in blue CCF pad. These are about /4 in. thick, I believe. My body was warm with the UQ, but my feet were freezing.
One idea I've been kicking around for avoiding this in the future was to bring 2foot pads, each cut to 20in x 20 in to double up the foot insulation—wouldn’t add much weight and I could use the pad in my frameless backpack, but it would rob me of some pack volume.
So, my question to everyone is: For those of you using 2/3 or ¾ length UQs, what combination of foot gear do you use to keep your feet warm for various temps? Let’s hear those ideas: inflatable sit pads, CCF pads, Gossamer Gear foam pads of various widths…and what else do you wear (if any), i.e. down booties, extra socks, etc.
