Well, I just use a larger sack. A large Sea to summit or just a large WM compression stuff sack like this, with one HHSS with one Explorer UL hammock, pad, plus kidney/torso pad
, a space blanket, overcover
,undercover and one Golight Ultra20 TQ
in one Heavy duty coated nylon sack, total weight 5 lb 7 oz:
Or I just stuff it in my pack. I stuff it just like an UQ. I just grab a handful of hammock, UC and pad (and sometimes TQ ) and stuff it to the bottom of the large sack, grab some more and repeat until all is in, and then compress. This would compress more but this sack is limited on compression. But still, consider all that is in there!
Yep, it will spring back pretty good and fast, unless it has been compressed a long time, not unlike down. But good down will compress more, still it ain't bad.
Thanks, it does appear to have the ability to compress, fairly well.
[QUOTE=BillyBob58;851724]OK, you've lost me. Are we talking about the WL UQ here? But whichever, what do you mean succesful sub zero hangs? ( sub zero F? )
So are you considering the HHSS - without adding insulation - for sub zero F use? Admittedly, a few people have done it, but they are rare as hens teeth. Most get to the low 30s, a few others into the 20s or rarely high teens. There have been 2 or 3 max that have gone below zero F without augmentation, most notablt Cryofthewild.....
kwpapke went to minus 27, but that was heavily augmented.
I left out a few words....proof reading ..
I meant to compare the WL SSUQ size & temp success with the SS size and temp success. It seems I misread the temp success others experienced with the SS, seems like I should compare to a 30* UQ.
