I received a River's West Artillery Blanket for father's day, and I'm thinking about using it as an underquilt, or maybe folding it up and trying to use it as a sort of makeshift pad. The material seems like it would keep the heat in pretty well, and the company claims that it's 100% wind and water proof. If I slung it underneath, in uq positioning I would probably stuff clothes/mylar blanket between the layers of my hammock.
Anyone ever use anything like this/have any experience with this kind of gear? I'm a bit of a nuub...so I'm trying to avoid barking up the wrong tree.
