    Winter Yeti vs Normal Yeti

    OK ... I did a search but came up empty.

    What's the difference between a yeti and winter yeti?

    Weight? Loft? Temp range?

    Any info is appreciated.

    Yes, yes, and yes.

    There aren't final specs on a Winter Yeti yet, since all the ones in distribution so far have been called prototypes.

    Animal Control's review of his is probably the most reliable source of info so far.
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    Thanks, AS. I guess I'm a little paranoid. I'm a cold sleeper. Winter is around the corner. I've got a 3 season yeti and a Golite Ultra 20. I just hate to think about being in single digit temperatures and freezing my a** off. If I could get a 'warmer" yeti now, I think I'd get one. Otherwise, I'll bring along a few more layers.

    I bought two of the Ultra 20 GoLite quilts so that I could take my brother with me. The loft in them is not impressive. I'm a hot sleeper, and the coldest I've had it to so far is in the mid 50's, which was fine although I needed to vent it to keep from overheating.

    If you can find one on sale or lightly used, it will probably be significantly cheaper than the Jacks' quilts, but you can tell this one was made in China. I have no complaints with it so far, but I seriously question whether or not it would make it to 20 degrees in a hammock. On the ground with a good pad, maybe.

    What is the loft on that 3 season Yeti? 1.5-2.5"? I would wild guess that for a COLD sleeper, single digit temps are going to be pretty cold without an added pad. I again would GUESS that the 30s is going to be about it for a COLD sleeper. ( So many variables in these temps guesses)

    You might be able to pick up another 10 degrees or more by adding a Heatsheet on top of the Yeti, to serve as a radiant/vapor barrier. Plus you might be able to wrap it all the way around the Yeti to serve as added wind block.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    3 season yeti is good to the 20's for warm sleepers and to the 30's for cold sleepers

    reflective liver will add some
