    Yeti question

    What is the tested low for the winter yeti for most?

    Been to -26 so far. Very close to my limit with a Winter Yeti.
    I doubt most would be comfotable too far past zero; I'm a bit of a mutant when it comes to tolerances with cold.

    I don't think many would need a sock to do zero, if they are well experienced, well fed, adequately dressed and have a good/large enough tarp and or sheltered site to block the wind. Some would of course, but then a very few are like Cannibal, who I don't think needed a sock for way below zero.

    The rating is zero. A rating from a reputable company like WB usually means that a lot of people, though not all, can be at least warm enough at the rating.
    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.

    I disagree .Personally I think go with a sock and smaller tarp, But either way im a cold sleeper so I would definitely be at my limits at 0 degrees.

    You would be in good company. That's pretty much how Just Jeff rolls. I've seen him sleep in single digits with no tarp; just a sock and a couple of quilts.

    Socks vs winter tarps is really little more than preference. Personally, I choose large tarps to cope with cold. Mostly, because I'm a furnace when I sleep and with socks I have to monitor my temps pretty closely, or deal with the condensation. So for me, it's the winter tarp route.

    A Winter Yeti used in conjunction with a sock should get you to zero pretty easy, even if you're a cold sleeper.

    From my experience with a spindrift if there is a slight wind you shouldn't have any trouble with condesation but you are correct if there is no wind condensation is a big problem and you would have to vent
