    and a sticking together point of "the low setting" on my dryer Still works tho. I hung comfortably last night down to 45* with one layer of Climashield xp (2.5oz) and one layer of "dryer" IX. I was comfortable the entire night. I used a 30* Alps Mtneering mummy bag converted to TQ and 15# mini-dachshund as a foot warmer.
    and then

    Note to self:

    DO NOT put your new UQ in the dryer! Hand wash and line dry!

    IX Underquilt

    I have also been experimenting with an IX underquilt. I took DWR ripstop and sewed in a heat sheet, then have one layer of Insultex over the heat sheet. Note in my picture that I have installed a draw string to close up the ends of the underquilt.
    So far I have been toasty at 45 degrees. I am waiting on colder weather for further testing.

    I got to see Canoeski's "baby orca" insultex/nylon UQ this past weekend. The thing is tiny and light! Nifty little piece of gear.
