    Nice set up. I wanted so bad to go out and try my set up in this nice cold weather. It was down to 18 degress here last night. I had to work today, so I didn't try it. I now wish I would have.
    Happy Hangin!!!

    I'm having a little trouble picturing the "stealth as Pod" approach. How do you have enough width to wrap around the hammock? Is it only wrapped around at the foot end, then hanging as a normal UQ in the torso area?

    Also curious, how low of a temp have you been able to stay comfy in using the Winter Yeti alone?
    Believe it or not the Stealth does wrap all the way all along it's length. I used a couple of short lengths of shock cord attached on one side in the middle and at the head end with mitten clips to attach to the other side. The Yeti being on the outside covers any gap. It actually worked quite well. Getting in and out was easy and it also keeps my top quilt from falling out. I will tray and get some photos/video this afternoon.

    I have not used the Yeti alone as of yet. I just got it.

    Boy in December we did a camp out with the Boy Scouts and it was 16* at night for low. All I had was a 0* HG Phoenix, 0* Arctic Shield Sleeping bag used as a quilt and a fleece liner that my wife made. Two layers on top and two on bottom and a pair of wool socks. I was good in that. I would roast in your set up.
    Must of been a great time hanging though.
