    I do think an over-overstuffed (since cottage makes already overstuff) quilt can give you some confidence that some little quilt issues are not the source of you being cold, and rather you can have...

    I'd recommend the 20 degree Wooki because of the fit. Worth the weight over the Yeti. Just my opinion, but full length pads are terrible in a hammock. Better off with a short, light pad which you...
