    Doubling up on under quilts??

    So the trip I am going on this coming weekend seems to be getting colder and colder. I run quite cold to begin with, but I really, really want to take my hammock set up. Lows look to be in the low teens, some forecast showing possibly as low as 5 Fahrenheit. I am thinking of bringing my full size 20 degree incubator and my 20 degree Phoenix, and a thin closed cell foam mat.
    Has anyone doubled up on under quilts? I am pretty small so both under quilts come up quite high on my sides.
    Do you think I can swing this, given that I do run cold? Oh, I will have insulating clothing as well...
    Thanks for the help.

    You'll be fine. Try to stay out of the wind! I double up uqs, a three-season and a full length down. You probably won't need the foam pad, you might get a little too warm and sweat, which would be bad. Wear moisture wicking underwear. Try it without the foam first, and see if you need it, then you can add it.

    Yes you can sometimes get to warm to a point that the down gets wet and looses snugliness and awesomeness. Sweating is as bad as being cold.

    the jacket in the pic is how i put my packa on my hammock as a wind shield.
    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness.

    Should one put the full or 3/4 UQ on the outside?
