My wife and I are going on a trip out west later this month, and being the po' students we are, we're trying to avoid hotels as much as possible and camp. Trouble is, my wife is chronically cold, and the night temps where we're going are ch-ch-chilly (in the 30's!)
So I made her this full-length UQ meant to be good to 20 degrees. I maaay have gone a little overboard with the down; after all, a few extra oz means nothing to me if it avoids hotel costs It weighs about 27 oz, and I think I'll be able to use it in winter with all the extra down.
Here's a teachable moment: I've been using a small WalMart carabiner to attach my ridgeline for quite a while, but when testing the UQ I guess I strained it too much and...
Didn't put me on the ground, just dropped me several inches. And startled me a bit. Looks like I'll be using something stronger.
