Guide Gear UL Bag as an Underquilt
Last week on Thanksgiving Eve I hung in the back yard. Temps got near 40. I had my HH with undercover and underpad. Previously I have added a 3/4 UL Thermarest pad on top of the underpad. To stay warm I had to get in my sleeping bag. This time I had the Guide Gear UL bag so I laid it in on top of the underpad so it became kind of an underquilt and worked with the underpad and undercover. I used my sleeping bag as a top quilt and was quite warm. I can't wait to use my new JRB Nest but it's still in the box and I won't even be able to look at it until Christmas.
A thought about the GG UL bag. It's pretty cheap, airly light and compacts well for packing. You could probably make an underquilt from one without too much trouble and I bet it would be good into the 50's. It might be a good cheap underquilt option for some of the milder weather campers or campouts.
