I'm still trying to figure out the best way to maximize the warmth of my down underquilt in below freezing temps. Many are reporting low temperature hangs right now. And I see many of us using closed cell pads or windshield reflectors between our bodies and the down underquilts. (I'm not talking about leg pads with short quilts.) Is this maximizing the down warmth factor? Doesn't the down work off the warmth of our bodies and if we put a ccf pad between us and the down, doesn't that simply block the heat getting to down and keep us as warm as possible?
Should we be using CCF pads between our upper bodies and the down quilt? I'm confused?
