    -39*C at a group hang. Used my Blackbird and superfly, 0* partial uq undermy body and myn20* partial under my feet with a ccf foot pad. -10 down bag inside of a -5 synth bag. Wore light baselayer vapour barrier suit then 2 midweight fleece layers. 2 layers of average wool socks plus my slightly damp bootliners to dry them out. Wool toque and fleece neck/head gator thing i have. Was toasty and comfy and slept soundly until 2 or 3 am when the trees around us started popping and splitting. Night one went to -35 and night 2 went to -39.
    Good times.

    Are all of those temps in Celsius/centigrade? So your 0* UQ: is it +32F or zero F? I figure 0F, but even so, if you were warm at -39C(bout the same as -39F?), you done good! Credit to VBs?

    When those trees start popping, do they start falling?

    In a tent I have been to 14F (-10C) with some layers on and a 30F sleeping bag with some hand warmers thrown into the foot box. In a hammock I have only been down to around 27F (-3C) but was quite toasty in one of Sheltowee Hammocks 20F insulated hammocks and my sleeping bag over me.

    You mean to say "recorded low" since your thermometer froze on you, right? Possibly could have been a few *F colder and with windchill, ow, it hurts. I think I got brainfreeze and without the yummy icecream or slurpee.
    Enjoy and have fun with your family, before they have fun without you

    I posted while at work. Just reread...very confusing. 0* and 20* F quilts. Top bags were bought in Canada so those would be basically a 0* bag inside a 20*. And Bubba maybe right about the temperature...was the same trip. I could have sworn it was colder then that tho. I am convinced the vapor barrier made a huge difference and it will be part of my cold gear for anything longer then a single night out.
