    You have a rough idea of the temperature and wind rating? I have a -30C sleeping bag but I fancy winter hammocking.

    Pertex is windproof. Stitching is nice and tight and you can't blow through the seams.

    I have a similar one and have been now down to 0 deg C with it over the last few weeks. Thats using a rab 250 down bag and wearing merino thermals and a hat.

    I used a Thermarest Z Lite seat pad for insulation under my feet.

    Wind proof is good. I can go to 0C with my existing kit, what I am really looking for is the ability to go to -15C to -30C without a thermarest at all. It would probably work with my big arctic bag but I would feel safer picking one up if I knew it would work since I pay $1.65 to the 1.00.

    I hear it is -18C in parts of france, you feel like driving over and doing a test run tonight?

    My rab bag is only good to 0 deg but I reckon I would be fine for another few degrees lower. The underquilt works like a sleepmat but more comfortable. It is as least as warm if not warmer than using my thermarest prolite 4 when I am on the ground. How low in terms of temp is very subjective. It depends on climate, metabolism etc.

    The important thing with the underquilt is that the insulation is more than enough for your back as its not going to be compressed. Add your winter bag and your good to go.

    It was -16 here in NW UK last week. I spent a while testing stoves in the cold, I did consider trying to hammock a night but decided against it.

    Any chance of a full length quilt? My consultant reccomends full length for my local environment. I don't really know jack about hammocks. I am only good at sleeping in them.
