Looking for some thoughts and feedback.
I'm trying to get my insulation set up just right. Warmest and Lightest possible.
I have a regular Clark NA. I'm an extremely cold sleeper. I do not sweat at night, well that I have ever noticed. I would like to set my gear for down to 20 degrees at night. Here's my thoughts:
*I have a Te-Wa winter UQ
*Just bought a SPE with 4 slots on each side. (I'm a bigger girl, wanted the coverage), along with 4 CC pads for slots (not sure how that will all fit, might only be able to use the slots closer to the center due to the clark zipper)
*either a neo air regular 14oz or my big agnes 3/4 insulated inflatable pad 19oz
* 1/4" GG x 40" wide pad (to be cut when I decide what to do)
*My bag is a montbell Super stretch #2 (awesome)
All together = warmth and WEIGHT! argghgh
I also have a down jacket, REI hiking shirt, hiking pants, mid weight base layers, awesome 3oz down booties!
Does this seem too much? I also will have my custom winterdream tarp.
I'm such a chicken when it comes to cold. My hubby and I are still fiddling with the UQ to fit around the pockets and such, and I'm open to tweeking my set up.
p.s. Yes I have switched out my tie outs to whoopie slings (thanks to a Stormcrow purchase) and I do have a WBBB double layer to use, but I thought my weather shield would benefit me down to these temps. But I will have the tarp...I don't know. grrrrr. Decisions are so frustrating when you are a newbie. Shoe shopping is easier. lol HELP please. Trying to keep my pack under 35lbs and I would like t use my Clark on this weekend Sycamore canyon trip.
*Pic only reflects practice hang. Now using WB tree straps on both ends to the whoopie slings, and UQ not set completely
