    Tips on Sniveller Serape use?

    After a half-dozen years of hammock backpacking with pads only, I finally made the plunge and bought the 3-season JRB set with Sniveller, sleeves, and Mt Washington (3 -season).

    So I haven't found a video or tips page on how best to use the Sniveller and sleeves as a serape. The basics are pretty straightforward: tie it around your belly. But I have to believe there are some good pointers have picked up as to how to best keep the heat in, tips for how best to use the sleeves with the serape, etc. I have seen Shug's entertaining video on the sleeves, but I'm interested specifically on best ways to configure the quilt, and then how best to integrate the sleeves.

    What have you learned that you can pass along before I head into the cold mountains? Is there a good thread on this topic that I simply didn't see?

    Thanks in advance for your wisdom!

    Dry Ducks rain jacket. Buy one a couple sizes larger than you need. Wear it over everything. Makes you a rather huge rain/windproof puffer. A tie around the serape at the waist helps reduce the Muffin Man Look.

    Don't forget to scavenge a down hood off of a jacket or order one from JRB, to complete the set.

    Be sure to open that oven up and baste the roast, while it cooks in there

    Besides a rain jacket, a larger wool shirt like a pendleton will also work. I much prefer the wool when near a fire.
