I searched the forums threads and haven't found any devoted to this product, so I thought I would ask.......
I am looking at UQ options and my funds are extremely limited. I currently use a fleece sleeping bag liner that I converted to a UQ and it does pretty well in cool temps (50's) but isn't warm enough to get me through the night at 40 and below (even with a ccf pad between the UQ and my ENO DN). I use my 30* sleeping bag as a TQ, but my size (girth) limits my ability to cocoon into it and be comfortable in the hammock. I tried putting the pad directly under me in the hammock, but made for a very uncomfortable night and still felt cold on backside. I want something that will keep my backside warm in colder temps. I know that the best set-up would be to bite the bullet and get a UQ, but I am still a season or two away from this option.
I saw this SOL SUB
and thought it might work as a UQ. It has grommets for hanging and isn't going to be super noisy like a mylar emergency blanket.
I've read the post's on vapor barriers, but I'm still confused about possible negative affects from hanging this kind of blanket under the hammock.
I was thinking that I could add a few more grommets to the blanket and attach to my biners with bungee cord.
Any thoughts on this proposed set-up or other ideas are GREATLY appreciated. Thanks.
