    Try what, tightening it up some more? Well, OK but it works pretty darn good already.

    I may have given the wrong impression. It's really not a big deal or problem at all, it stays put pretty well. It's a somewhat "occasional" thing that it might slip up above my shoulders enough to cause venting. And very quickly and easily fixed if it does happen. This thing rocks! ( and OTOH, it is just super easy to vent if needed).

    I cant imagine a headhole with overlapping insulation and a good closure is a problem with an UQ, you think it is?

    So your Torso UQ with both layers (?) was still comfortable at 50F? , with or without venting? What is its average lowest comfortable temperature?
    I don't have enough data to give you a temp rating. Theoretically 2 layers of 3.7oz combat should take you well down into the 30's but I can't personally confirm that yet, and it'll be this fall before I can. i still say you should just buy or build a No Sniveler if you want a headhole. I plan to build a summer NS, I know JRB makes the Stealth but I want one-inch baffles.
