Type of UQP for different conditions?
New to the hammock world and would love some advice on summer insulation.
I am looking for options for both cold and humid conditions. And this is what I am considering (in association with Hex fly and synthetic sleeping bag as TQ):
Cold (0-15 degrees Celsius): hammock, space blanket, UQ (torso length) with UQP
Humid (15+ degrees Celsius): hammock, fleece blanket, UQP
My first question is, is this a suitable option (cold sleeper)? If not, what would you suggest?
The second is what UQP to use, breathable or sil-nylon? My current understanding would be breathable with the UQ and sil-nylon for the fleece option.
G'day hikerkelly and welcome to HF.
My thoughts are:
For 0-15 I think you could just have your UQ and UQP - skip the space blanket. Just get an UQ suited to those temps.
For 15+ I would go breathable UQP with that setup for sure.
I guess to make it simpler and only have one type of UQP I would just go breathable.
I will be making a UQP soon out of 1.1 breathable ripstop nylon for Tassie conditions.
