    reflectix

    I'm backpacking in GSMNP this weekend and am trying to decide between hammock and tent. I'm a cold sleeper. I've got a hammockgear underquilt and a decent sleeping bag for a top quilt. Toying with the idea of getting some reflectix to put under me.

    It'll probably be in the 20s. I'll be several miles in the backcountry so I'll have limited options if I do get cold.

    Any advice? Would Reflectix be a good idea and if so where can I get some?

    I always carry a 12"x14" square as a sit-pad but use it under my knees or slip it under my buttocks if the cold creeps in with my 3 season UQ.
    I got mine at Home Depot...a big roll for $11.

    I've seen you do some pretty crazy tumbling into your hammock. So I'm not sure you get in your hammock like the rest of us.
