    Tried new Ridge Runner last night (19 degrees out)

    Below are some pics of my first setup of Ridge Runner (RR) outside in SE Mich (19* last night).
    Used UGQ Zeppelin 20* UQ I bought last Summer for my Clark NX270 ... didn't fit the RR perfectly, but did the job ... Only one very minor cold spot by my feet.
    Also used EXped down mat 7 between the layers of the RR.
    For TQ I used my WesternMountaineering Lynx (rated to -10*).
    Also used a SeatoSummit Thermolite Reactor Extreme.
    For tarp I used the Clark I bought with the NX270.
    Was very warm ... Almost too warm.
    Hammock was very comfortable ... More comfortable than the Clark.
    Could have gone without tarp given there was very little breeze.

    That looks like a very warm system. That is quite a sleeping bag/top quilt.

    Glad u liked the RR. Keep fiddling with the UQ and you will get snug as a bug in a rug. Great pics also
