    A Cold and Windy Night

    I just returned from an overnight on top of Glastenbury Mountain (elev. 3750'), Vermont. The rain stopped during the late afternoon, but high winds continued throughout most of the night. With clear skies, the temperature dipped into the mid 20's. Had the WBBB, 3 season Yeti, Nunatak Specialist, and OES custom Spinn. With a bit of help from Icebreaker underwear and a Montbell UL inner parka I stayed warm enough throughout the night. No photos this trip since I somehow left my Blackberry on and had a dead battery.

    Sounds like that confirms WBG's rating on the Yeti. At least if you are a warm sleeper. If you are a cold sleeper, then it exceeded his rating. IOW, then his rating would br conservative, if you are a cold sleeper. No pad(except for legs), right?
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    I'm a warm sleeper, and yes I was using a 10" x 19" Gossamer Gear Sitlight pad for my lower legs and feet (which also doubles as a back pad in my MLD Revelation pack). I'd say that the 3 season Yeti should be fine for even a cold sleeper down to 30F/32F.
