A note about cold-weather hanging with the PLUQ.

I will definitely trying this out when I start trying some cold weather hanging!
I am still playing with the PLUQ in colder temps, this last weekend being the most recent. Here in the high desert, we've been getting some low overnight temperatures in June. Sunday was 34°F! I was feeling pretty good at 45°F, but as it dropped to 40°F I started to cool. I was wearing shorts, socks, a t-shirt, and a long-sleeve fleece shirt. This was my new sewn-up PLUQ with one layer of Insultex sandwiched in the middle. On top was my deliciously warm Stormcrow Burrow top quilt.
My rabid gram weenie wants to see better results from the Insultex, and I was marginally upset that it didn't help as much -- maybe 5 or 10 degrees of warmth.
The optimist in me wants to try again with more layers of Insultex and a better baffle sew job. But, with just the PLUQ alone, it seems to be a strong performer in 50°F±.
