    DIY UQ Question

    Looking for an estimated temp range for my set up. I have a DIY UQ made of a military poncho liner, 30 degree snthetic bag and a Thermarest inflatable Scout pad which has foam inside. Any guess what my bottom temp rating might be? I tend to be a warm sleeper...

    It's similar to what I used when getting started hanging and I'm a cold sleeper. I got down to the high 20's with the proper clothing - med jacket, thermals, wool socks, etc.

    Oh, I meant that I get hot easy. That's not bad for being minimal.

    Optimistacally, if you are using all of that below you and can get it all to snug up properly I'd suspect being able to get down to around 0F. Not sure how comfortable you would be with all though. And I would highly reccomend safe testing of any temps lower than your warmest insulation can handle alone before taking it out to the woods without a good bug out option.
