So that the outside is covered as you already did, but also the inside UQ shell covered, which should keep any body vapor from condensing inside the UQ. Then - like the HHSS - you would have total wind block PLUS dry down with the VB blocking the travel of vapor into your quilt. Also, evaporative cooling on your back side- a considerable source of cooling- would be blocked. If you ever feel up to trying such an experiment, you might want to go light on the TQ to prevent over heating, unless you are really pushing the temp limits of your UQ and/or TQ.
    I'm going to give this a try next trip out. These things are only like $2 at Lowes. Total weight for this theoretical wrapper would be about 4oz for the 0.7mil stuff. Not something i would generally take with me, but might be useful if i knew i was pushing the limits. The bigger problem (wind) is harder to predict, though.

    Bet he carries a space blanket after that experience!
