- Oct 3, 2006Sorry for the late reply. I'm way behind on reading this group.
I've used a 25" x 2" TR in a HH Explorer UL Asym many times to the low 20*s
and have been perfectly warm. I called TR and they said the pad has a R7
The rest of the clothing was medium weight Duofold long underwear, Possum down
socks, and fleece balaclava. I used a TNF Blue Kazoo (20*) as a quilt on
top and slept directly on the TR pad.
This system is awesome, but H E A V Y ! Now that I have a Speer hammock with
PeaPod and TopBlanket, I'll never sleep on a pad again. I'm totally sold on
My sleeping kit:
Speer 8.0A hammock
Speer 8' x 10' silnylon fly
HH Explorer UL Asym
JRB Shenandoah Summer Quilt/Under Quilt
TNF Blue Kazoo bag 20*
Big Agnes Horse Thief bag 35* (top bag, bottom has no insulation)
Bozeman Mt. Works Cocoon pullover
Bozeman Mt. Works Cocoon pants
I like HH in summer when bugs are present and Speer in colder temps.
This "modular" approach allows mixing and matching gear to meet
the temperature. Being able to use insulated clothing as part of
my sleep system allows me to use a lighter bag, saving real weight.
