1157Re: Speer answers
- Apr 27, 2003It is possible a synthetic bag would actually be slightly better in
a hammock. Notice you can't compress a synthetic as much as a
similar loft and size down bag. One reason Big Agnus has no
insulation on the bottom. Another posability (not made to my
knowledge) would be a 2-tone sleeping bag. Down on the top half,
synthetic on the bottom.
From your other post it is obivious your cold spots were where you
sliped off the pad. I have had similar experiences. That is one
reason my reflectic pad is 40 inches wide. I fold each wing to the
middle and rool it up into a 20 inch wide bundle for the trail. It
is bulky but not as heavy as most thermarest. I have a target blue
foam pad 27 inches wide and it works good in my Crazy Crib but the
CC dosent wrap around me as much as my HH so it works quite well.
