Really enjoyed that video Shug. Along with Griz's new "beak" vid, it has been a great week or two for videos!

I agree a bag can seem like such a PITA once you are used to a good quilt. I have been playing around with them again recently. Although, if you have a dry place to stand on and put the bag on and hood over your head before getting in the hammock, then even just zip up most of the way, it is not really much trouble. And so draft free!
But I have just been reminded that there is one sleeping bag which is a real exception to the PITA rule: The Speer Pea Pod! After all, it is nothing more than a sleeping bag optimized for a hammock. And yet, it get's rid of all the bag/hammock problems while maintaining almost all of the benefits. Unless warm air escapes out of the breathing hole (easily avoided if I even bother with a breathing hole), drafts are never an issue no matter how much I move. Of course, a TQ might still be part of the system. I can't imagine ever bothering with a bag inside the pod(bag). It would be pretty redundant.
But, speaking of TQs: man, that WB TQ looks REALLY SWEET! What kind of loft does that thing have? I think I love it!
That winter Yeti doesn't look too shabby, either!
