more about the quilt later.
the hammock is the one ewker posted photos of from the mt rogers trip.
according to the brunton ADC wind, it got down to 14.1 for a couple hours in the early morn.
i slept warm w/ the exception of feeling a slight coolness a time or two during the wee morning hours.
no wind... maybe just a slight bit of air movement.
i wore the same clothes i would normally wear on a cold weather backpacking trip. i consider my clothing part of my sleep system.
short sleeve wicking shirt
long sleeve wicking shirt w/ zip neck
synthetic insulated jacket
fleece balaclava (or whatever<g>)
fleece lined nylon pants
mid weight thorlo socks
the fleece lined pants are really warm, but also heavy & bulky. i hope to be replacing them very soon w/ montbel`s UL thermawraps.
i forgot... between the long sleeve wicking shirt w/ zip neck & the synthetic insulated jacket, i was wearing a golite wind shirt.
