    I had this same problem with my 20 degree incubator and burrow, was warm everywhere but my toes... Grabbed some flamethrower socks from AHE and I now use a partial length UQ and my toes have never been happier

    I don't really mind the size of the New River in the stuf sack. It fully fills the bottom of my pack in a lengthwize position. It seems to give it better balance or equilibrium on the bottom of the pack and things go on top of it just fine. With the Jarbidge I would need to put something next to it in the bottom of my pack to 'even out' the bottom.

    You can always use a compression sack for the New River on shorter trips, but I would not store it in the compression sack for long. I have a compression sack from an old sleeping bag which got the New River down to the size of a volleyball. Unless I am packing a ton or for over a week trek then I don't see me using the compression sack.
