I have an HE and love it, but even though I sleep fairly warm, I get
cold on the bottom of my HE at anything below about 50F. And this
with a Target blue pad under my bag. Just too much cold air blowing
by. Haven't tried a Mosquito, but the double layer fabric looks really
easy to stuff a better pad in. Anyway, I'd suggest bottom warmth is
the critical factor if you're going up to the Wind high country. Gets
cold at 10k feet, even in the summer.
Looking forward to hearing about the trip.
