    Using reflectix in conjunction with UQ?

    Could you use a piece of reflectix with an UQ to add some warmth? I know I could use a full length pad with my 2/3 UQ, but I am trying to figure out the warmest addition to my leighlo 20* UQ.

    Reflectix is bulky. I'll bet you could get close by just using a space blanket or maybe a windshield reflector.

    Tanker, Check out the Insul-tec carried by Hancock's and I believe our WM has it. It's a fleece coating on both sides of a perforated mylar sheet. Used it in my PLUQ last spring between the layers, gave a good boost to the UQ. Believe mine is approx 45"x 60" and rools up to the small WM stuff sack or 4"x 6", and hardly any weight.
    Most of us end up poorer here but richer for being here. Olddog, Fulltime hammocker, 365 nights a year.

    I carry a 12"x14" piece of reflectix as a sit pad and often use it under my buttocks, back or thighs when need when cold out. It boosts the heat for sure.
