    Plan to test it on my first night in a hammock tomorrow night, 45*, 50% rain. I'll be letting you know how it does.

    Well took mine on its first test last night. Rained off and on all night, temps got into the mid to low 40s. I have a BB XLC with net on and a 0 degree full length UQ. With this bag as a tq I ended up having to vent a few times during the night. Pretty sure I could go close to 0 with this setup. I also tried to flip the hood up as a face cover but got way to hot way to quick. I am happy with my purchase.

    I picked this up today. Initially its very thin but does loft up decently about 1.5 inches.. In original packaging it weighed in at 25 oz.. I trimmed off basically everything I could without cutting into the chambers including the zipper,shock cord, cord locks, and Velcro; I also trimmed off the compression straps on the stuff sack and it's cap. It now is registering at 21.5 oz. I plan on taking this on my upcoming section hike of the AT this coming week. We shall see how this combines with my three season yeti

    Tested this bag as a quilt last night, it bottomed out at 48*. I was on a blue pad, and I'd say it was warm enough, but not toasty.

    About the same as a poncho liner, same weight, same temps.

    I used this last night with my new DIY reflectix pad and stayed plenty warm. It was around 35* but I could probably go lower and be fine.
