    first time hangin with a chill

    I just spent my first chilly night out. I put a tapered synthetic 0* sleeping bag under me in my diy tbcf hammock with a 20* unzipped mummy down on top and slept warm as toast at 34* F with 15k wind. no tarp, no dew or rain. slept on the bag zipped up so it was double thickness.
    next i will try just the 0* bag alone unzipped.
    i am a still sleeper.
    the only negative i see is the weight and bulkiness of 2 bags.
    i do plan to make an under bonnet from a quality bag or mummy,
    the two i have now are just too fine to cut up.
    just thought some other nubies might like to think on my experience.

    Congrats! There's few feelings better than sleeping in a warm cocoon knowing you've protected yourself from the cold all-around.

    Now the next challenge - down to below 0!
