It's winter. It's cold, we all want to stay warm. I've been too cold a few times, but never too warm. I'd like to hike as light as possible, but don't want to make a mistake on gear. I'd like an opinion from experienced hangers on my winter hammock gear set up.. I'm in the midwest, mostly lows in single digits or a little higher. Here's what I have going: WBBB; Yeti UQ 3/4; Gossamer Gear Thinlight Pad; an old section of a Zrest to cross diagonally at my feet; I do not have an overquilt, but normally carry a bag. Question- do I need my 0* down or can I get by with the 35* synthetic. Both are full side zips & I would just open up & use them as tops. I also own a pair of Mont Bell gd pants. So all things considered, can I get by without the 0*, which is so much more to carry.
I know this is ultimatly a personal decision, and likely there are many threads on similar topics, which I simply did not view.
Thanks for any input.
