sleeping cosy in Australia?
I've read around a little, but I haven't found a definite answer to my question.
The gear I have: A JRB Nest (that's moved from the US to South America to Australia)- it doesn't seem as warm as it once was.
I also have A snugpak "Softie Merlin" black mummy-style sleeping bag, rated to 5*C comfort, 0*C (http://www.snugpak.com/index.php?Men...-131&ItemID=14)
I'm hiking and camping in Victoria, Australia, with overnight temperatures ranging from roughly 0*C to 30*C (+), though I might start winter hiking, which would drop the minimum to max (heh) -10*C. (For you Farenheit-ers, that's 14F to 86F(+))
The last couple of times I've been out I've been ground sleeping in tents on a roll mat (sigh) and that might be why I've been a little cold. (Snugpak mummy only) And I'd like to make sure I'm not cold in the hammock.
Would a winter quilt (such as the Rocky Mountain Sniveller) be overkill? Or should I just go for a No Sniveller, or another system entirely? Would the MT Washington be more idiot proof?
I'd use it to augment my winter set up and replace the mummy for warmer weather.
my hammock gear weights total: 2430g (~86oz)
Winter: total 2521 (~89oz)
(see my profile for detailed weights)
gram counter, not gram weenie!
