    I wore a fleece beanie! Just ordered a new wool one from Kat at MountainGoatGear!
    BillyBob58 thanks for your offer. I'm going to try to get it dialed in with a friend of mine in the hammock. If I continue to have problems I may give you a shout!

    Excellent! Try and figure out if it is a dif cut or not. If it is not, just make sure it is not TOO tight!

    And especially if your WBBB is a dbl layer, before you suffer that much again just put a WM blue pad into the WBBB pad pocket under your feet and or feet!
    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.

    +1 on the blue pad/ reflectix under your feet, whether in between a dbl layer, inside the hammock on a single layer, or even inside your footbox/sleeping bag.

    The small chemical handwarmer packs work great too for generating heat if there are blood circulation problems involved. Toss one in by your feet and they will be toasty all night.

    Personally I found my biggest issue with my UQ on a gathered end hammock was the "ridge" that runs through the center when loaded caused a small gap between the hammock and UQ on the foot end under my calves. That small gap lets a lot of cool air pool under my backside causing major CBS. On my last trip at ~ 28 degrees F I used a spare sock to plug the gap. I'll probably add a draft tube to the foot end of the UQ to alleviate this.
    Experience is the worst teacher - it presents the exam first and the lesson later. - Unknown
