Northern Tier deep winter - can I do it?
Obsessing over things, and I haven't even bought one yet.
I'm reading about the various insulation methods, and I'm seeing a temp range starting around 40 down to about 25 for various levels of comfort with liners and underquilty things.
I'm a Scout Leader; we camp year-round. I'm wondering about January and February out here in New England. In a tent, and my -5 sleeping bag, I'm perfectly comfortable down to about 10 degrees above the temp rating. I was last out in the cold a while back, and we did about 15 degrees without any trouble.
Can I do this in a hammock, or is it just beyond the temperature rating of the various insulation methods?
(Side note - I was out this past weekend at Nobscot Scout Reservation in Sudbury, MA....we were out for a portion of Saturday afternoon in shirtsleeves. I'm sure this is perfectly normal for early December, but I digress.)
