    testing 3s phoenix in backyard

    First off I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. Just got my 3 season phoenix with 900 down, went back home for the holidays and decided to test it out in my backyard last night. I slept in my eno double nest with a eureka silver city 30 degree bag for top insulation. It got down to about 23 F last night here in Jamestown NC so I wasn't to concerned since the phoenix is advertised to 15 F with 900 down. I love this under quilt. I was very warm on my underside and the sleeping bag kept me nice and warm on top which surprised me since it was well below 30 F. I had a jacket, hoodie and sweatpants on for clothing. I could never imagine going without an UQ now that I've slept in this baby. Stormcrow makes a great product and I highly suggest one to anyone wanting to extend their hammocking season or tired of getting a cold back in the night.
    I plan on sleeping out in my backyard again tonight, its suppose to get down to 25 F.
    Heres some pics, I bought a piece of the camo fabric from the HG website and made a weather shield. It was a clear night so I slept under the stars with no tarp.

    Can't wait to get mine. I think it should be here today but will have to site under the tree until Saturday. I am leaving for a little 2 nighter on Monday and will be taking it with me.

    Did you have to use anything under your legs for insulation or was the bag enough?

    The bag was enough the first night but I did notice my legs getting a little cold last night. Other than that I slept very well and managed to sleep until 10:30 ish with no tarp on a sunny morning.
