    Augmenting an under quilt.

    My 3-season 3/4 CrowsNest UQ has kept me toasty so far this fall, but I was wondering if anyone had augmented an UQ with Reflectix for colder temps?

    I was considering cutting pieces of Reflectix to fit the pockets of my NX-250. It seems to me that in that position they would be in the proper location to act as a vapor barrier (although there would be gaps at the pocket edges). Anyone tried this?

    you'd be better off (imo) going with very thin ccf (you can get 1/8" landau or minicel or eva)

    that adds at least 15 deg for me.

    i know 1/8" ccf will take up less space than reflectix and i bet it will be warmer as well

    I'd be curious as to how it would work with Insul~Bright, instead of the Reflectix.
    Yesterday's tomorrow is tomorrow's yesterday. It's the only day that counts.

    Not familiar with Insul-Bright

    and I agree that the 1/8" CCF would be as warm as the Reflectix. But I just happen to have a roll of Reflectix.........

    Probably going to get a test hang this weekend. Report to follow.

    Thanks for that idea. I just ordered some landau to try out.

    You read my mind. I been thinking the same thing with my NX150. I have some reflectix sewn into a fleece bag from wally world, for a pad, but keep sliding off and getting CBS. Got a coupla synthetic comforters at auction 2/$1 but I'm reluctant to do the butchery to build a UQ. If they aren't snug, you're cold. Good luck, I'll eagerly await posting of your results while scheming the purchase of one of Stormcrow's incubators.
