    Whoo! My 20*F is Perfect!

    Got my order on Thursday and slept Friday night with just my Phoenix. And my 3 season bagI can honestly say that was the best cold night (raining and blowing) hang I've had. Yes it's the first UQ for me but easy as stink setup, lightweight, small pack size, not one cold spot. Except my hands as I watched a movie on my phone (Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy). Granted I don't know if it was the incredibly boring movie or the wonderful warmth that put me to sleep, but I slept in till 9:30 no prob.

    Short summary, loved the quilt, hated the movie.

    And here it is, I'm thinking I'm the only person watching movies on my smart phone! LOL! Since the days are short in the colder weather, turning in at 7:00pm had me waking up too early in the morning, so I needed something to keep me awake and this was the answer.

    Got my notice for my 20 7d Burrow yesterday. Can't wait till the warm downey goodness arrives. Enjoy the new quilt Hammock gear does a mighty fine job.
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    Great results on the first try, Hangandy! How cold was it?
    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.

    OK, so what next; Digital TVs installed on the ridgeline?

    Congrats on your warm hang!

    You know, it was only about 40* but our weather blows sideways rain and so I'd say it was the equivalent of 20* dry.

    So...I buy an extra silicon skin for the phone, punch some holes in the back, run some string and toggles, hang it over the ridgeline...


    Thanks for the idea!

    Just got mine, this evening!

    I don't know if I've ever looked forward to a piece of gear as much as this. I would be under it tonight if I had the chance. Excellent craftmanship, excellent service. Couldn't be happier with my 20deg Burrow.
