About 10:30 it had dropped to 30 and I was getting cold in the shoulders and across the top of my back. So I added a set of spare sleeves to my upper back and within 5 I was good again. I woke up at 2:30 , temp was 28 and I felt fine, not toasty but bearable, feet were a little cold but I moved around and the felt a little better. So back to sleep until 430, woke up with the end of my right foot freezing. I had been pressing up against the side of my hammock and UQ pretty hard so I lost all my loft in that area. Rearranged and added other sleeves as booties, (not sewn yet) and it was bearable for the rest of the night.
If I hadn't been testing the UQ I would have had my pad under my feet and I believe that would have solved the cold foot syndrome.
The free sliding channel of ribbon made it easy to move up and down as needed depending on the slant. I could pull more over my footbox and shoulder quite easily. The shock cord kept everything in place nicely.
I took some video through the process and hopefully I will be able to piece together my first DIY video and hopfully it will help. :-)
I freakin' love the UQ! If I were you I would never part with that one. Love it that it's modular too. Add extra insulation when needed- i did the same. Yours is a work of art
