    Coldest temps I have been in

    Hung my HH Expedition Zip in the back yard last night. The temps got to the lowest I've hung in. 25 was the low. I had my AHE Lost River in digital camo under me and a Wally world mummy bag as a top quilt. I slept like a coma patient until 4am when I realized my UQ shifted from underneath me on one side despite my new UQ triangle thingies in place. I didn't use the HH tie outs in hopes of helping to keep the UQ in place. Any suggestions or experience welcome. But all in all I had a good night. I woke up refreshed and hit the local mountain bike trails for a good ride !

    Use the tie outs on the hammock but loop one through a corner of the quilt....at the corresponding corners. That will help hold it all in place with no extra hardware.

    I thought about that Paul. But I was laying head left, feet right (tieout on left at head end) but the quilt slipped under me on the upper right side causing coldness. Still try it looped through tie out on right sight foot end? I think I had my wife hang in it like that and the tie outs used caused gaps.

    Red face Cool temp vs. windy conditions

    Greetings to all forum members!! I am lucky enough to live in FL. so cold temps are usually not a huge problem but we do have some cold nights. This weekend however was my first cold feet night in a hammock. The reason for this (lesson learned) was the wind. Believe it or not this was my first night by water (St. Johns river) and the first time wind has been a factor on a hang. I had my 3/4 UQ, which has always been more than enough but with the wind my feet would just not warm up. I doubled up on the socks and put in my pad in the cold breeze but still suffered a rather miserable night. Thanks to hammock forums i have plenty of tips and tricks to try. We can't foresee every situation we might find ourselves in but don't let one rough night ruin a great past time!! Again, lesson learned....
