I'm hoping this winter we will hear from some users pushing various AHE quilts to their maximum ( or minimum ) whatever that is. Based on my experience with Climashield in weights from 2.5 oz per sq.yd to 6.3 oz.sq.yd, it just seems to me that these quilts- which use 6 oz(per sq.yd) wt. CS - are rated extremely conservative.
Then again, there are many elements involved in an UQs warmth other than the insulation inside it, things having to do with fit and seal and draft resistance and compression of loft ( IOW dif cut ). So I am looking forward to seeing how far folks can push these quilts- rated to only 30F - this winter. Get to it, boys and girls!
Apparently, signature that I used from 2006 no longer tolerated so now deleted.
Had my 30* down to 22* so far. Worked well!

Old Gringo made up a bungee setup for the new river and provided me with a set, They are splendid and worked better than i could have imagined, very simple yet extremely efficient and in no way incumber the uq and hammock. You might contact him and he can provide design, very simple.
No sorry i don't, I used NR uq without and set it up as designed, even had someone snug after i was in, still as i moved around in night I'd get cool air in spots, (temp in 50's with breeze) not bad , but noticeable and "if colder" I think would have been worrisome, the following nigh, lower temp, but using the bungees with plastic hooks he made, it snuggled up on me just like you'd like, and did so well, became over warm, I'm 6'4" 225, and using a dangerbird. What i really liked was they do not interfere or get in way of hammock or tie outs. He gave them to me last year , but didn't get around to using them till this last 3 days. OG just fig it out as he often does, btw, one thing i really appreciate is I can leave attached without being in the way. jim
