    Jarbidge River UQ question

    I'm seriously thinking about ordering this. It says most people can sleep down into the 30's with it. Anyone who owns this ever taken it lower than 30 degrees?

    i'm pretty sure brother jeffery took it down pretty low on the last ohio hang... in conjunction with a pad, though.

    i got my lost river - ( same temp. rating / insulation as the jarbidge ) down to about 37F and was warm with no cold spots.

    Yeah I just want to get an inexpensive UQ, I just ordered the 20F Burrow from HG. I'm wondering with a pad and or my poncho liner I could cut it down under 30. Been gettin some freezing temps up in the AT here in GA.

    Jarbidge to 33

    Used mine last week In the backyard with a CCF pad beneath my feet, a 20 degree bag as a top quilt, and base layer polypropylene tops and bottoms. It got down to 31 and I was perfectly warm.....no cold spots.

    Also used it two nights ago down to 33 but was inside the 20 degree bag (was expecting colder temps) and wearing two layers of insulation. Laid for a while with the bag on top of me and just the Jarbidge underneath after late night wake up call and was warm then too.

    Pretty sure you can take it to 30 and probably a little below and stay warm.

    Yeah with a down jacket and some leg thermals and such I could probably make it. I'm going to sleep on it!

    Question, I was looking at the Jarbridge as well...but the pack size is huge! I see its not compressed so I was wondering how it packs when compressed. That thing would eat up my pack without it.
