    reflective blanket, over or under uq?

    On the Yeti UQ, it come s with an optional reflective blanket, Its my understanding that it goes between the hammock and the UQ. How does that work, with condensation etc? Can the same thing be done with a mylar emergency blanket? How does the UQ still breathe if you do this?
    FYI: If you want to know what type a certain bear is, sneak up behind it and kick it. Then,
    run like crazy and climb up a tree. If the bear climbs the tree and eats you, it's a black
    bear. If the bear just pushes the tree over and eats you, it's a grizzly bear : )


    Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me, either, just leave me alone.

    In short, it acts a vapor barrier to limit breathability. In really cold temps, that can be helpful.

    There is a great thread here about using vapor barriers.
