    UQ from a Czech Army Bedroll

    Has anyone attempted or successfully modded a Czech army bedroll to make it an UQ?

    I know the simpliest way to do it is just trapping a ridgeline between the sheet/blanket and bivvy outer with the buttons, just wondering if anyone has done anything else to make them more UQ friendly?

    In case ou don't know what one of these is, it's one of these jobbies:

    I would be more tempted to simply add this to a double layer, or directly under your bag. There will be no problems if there's a strong breeze going. I did look at these some time ago as a dedicated winter solution, but weight and bulk ruled it out for me.

    A friend simply uses a summer back with reflective foam padding added inside it and directly below his winter bag with great effect.
    Cost- About 20 and good for -7 (20f) and probably a bit more.

    If you don't go far from your travel source, they make a great/cheap alternative. They are well made for the price.

    Don't get me wrong, i've got a thermarest for if i bimble away from the car but was toying with the idea of making it more UQ-usable, the simple way does work, just pondering if anyone did anything else with them to use them as an UQ
