Temp Range

Designed to be used in conjunction with clothing layers on the upper torso, head and arms.

Above 50 degrees: Sleep in a T Shirt, socks and maybe a wind shirt.

38-50 Degrees: Add a medium insulated jacket, balaclava or hood, light gloves and socks.

A bivy sack will also add a lot of warmth and block wind.

My Comments:

It packs well and is a work of fine craftsmanship. A bit less than 9 oz.

When hot, I used the 2Thirds XP quilt in a bivy sack wearing a tee and found it to be comfortable. When cool, I used Cocoon Hoody and Pant with the 2Thirds and it was sufficiently warm.

I plan to use it for added warmth for colder weather. Will report back on this later.
