O.K. So I was looking at the crowsnests. Due to this wonderful sale coming up on Friday, I definitely am going to have to purchase one. What I am having difficulty deciding is whether I should go with the Summer Crowsnest, or the 3-Season Crowsnest?
I live in Florida, and it is hot most of the year, so most of the time I can get away with no insulation at all, or just my Therm-A-Rest Z-Pad. In the middle of the winter, the temperature in my neck of the woods rarely drops below 45*F, and almost never drops below freezing (that's South Florida for ya).
I know that the Summer Crowsnest is good down to 40*F, which should be just fine anywhere in Florida in the Winter, but I know that I would like to make it to hangs in the Gorge, and further north in the future, not to mention trips that I plan on taking myself up north as well. I know that in the future, I will probably own every type of UQ known to man, but for now I can really only afford one (for this winter at least). So here is the dilemma:
Seeing as I would like to go out of Florida for some weekend trips this coming Spring, I was thinking that the 3-Season Crowsnest might be more appropriate than the Summer Crowsnest so that I can have some good insulation down to 20*F. However, I would also like something to use in Florida in the Winter considering this is where I will be doing most of my hanging. As I said, the temps in Florida in the Winter can go down to freezing (maybe a little colder in North Florida, where I do also plan on hanging some), but they could also possibly be as high as 75*F in the middle of the night depending on the weekend.
So......what is the highest temperature you would say a 3-season Crowsnest would still be comfortable to before I would start to sweat? Mind you, I am a fairly warm sleeper.
Any suggestions would be appreciated, and remember there is a time-line on this as I must purchase this product on FRIDAY! Not to put any pressure on any of you, since the pressure clearly falls on me at this time!
