    Under-quilt & Sleep Pad ??

    So i have a Kylmit Static V sleep pad and just recently went camping. Night went to about 6 or 7 Celcius. I was warm, just some cold spots when i would roll over or have my arm or feet against hammock. But i find the sleep pad very comfortable. I'm thinking of perhaps adding an under quilt so i have no cold spots, but keeping pad so it is comfortable and no knee, calf issues.

    Is this overkill? What type of quilt should i get that could be used from say 6 or 7 celsius to 23 celsius along with my pad?

    If that's your lower limit, you'd be looking at a 1 season summer quilt, 0C/40F. In colder weather you'll be pushing it. -6C/20F is considered you 3 season, spring/summer/fall quilt. - 17C/0F is your winter quilt.

    Generally, if you only were going to have one quilt. Most people get a 3 season and supplement with a pad in the colder temps. In the summer you'd still use your three season, but bring a lighter top quilt.

    Other people have one quilt for each occasion.

    You could make an SPE http://www.tothewoods.net/HomemadeGearSPEZipper.phpor get an ENO HotSpot https://www.gearbuyer.com/products/e..._enhancer.html to go around your pad to keep your arms protected.

    I feel like that would be too restrictive

    It isn't really. I made one in my early hammock days when I used a pad. See it a 4:42 in video below.
    Added thigh sections to mine as well. Kept my arms, thighs warm and made it easier to wrangle the pad.
    Of course a UQ is the best!
