    WOW, CONGRATS ON THE success right off the bat with below 20 first hang! On my first hang, I woke uo shivering violently at only 22*F! And congrats on being able to push the GL Ultra 20 to such temps. As an UL20 owner, I am surprised to hear that. It is a great quilt, but I really don't think I could take it to 15 with just the cloths you used. Though I have taken it to ~11 using puffy clothing, but I did not make it through the nigh without being a litttle cool. But I might have been OK if I had used my Marmot hood and if I hadn't had so much breath condensation on the quilt.

    On the other hand, that same quilt used inside the Pea Pod gets me through some serious cold while emaining quite toasty!
    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.

    Everyone likes the lay that Brandon (WarbonnetGuy) provides.

    Always nice to have the backyard for cold weather testing. It's only a few steps from warmth and you don't have to make excuses to your buddies about bailing.

    look at a Griz beak in the future,may prevent a spin around...
    thinking out loud here, if i was in the setup pictured i'd kicked/shoveled snow up to the edge of the tarp, maybe brought the tarp lower and seal both long edged.
    Impressive for a first hang, backyard or not you've earned your stripes.

    Hawkeye mentioned the Griz beak also. It would've done a much better job at keeping the wind out. I think I'll have to buy one of those too (looks like I found another hobby that qualifies as a "black hole" for money).
