Yes I generally sleep cold. Using both straps and a BA qcore sl R4.7? I think. I have the foot box zipped up and the lower strap sucked in. Part of it I think is the wind usually swirls around at night and blows in the open side of the shelter where my head is and right inside the quilt. I think for next year I might upgrade to a bit more substantial shelter like a Cimarron or TutAre you using straps when it's colder? Do you generally sleep cold? Also, what's the R Value of your pad?
20° is perfect for September.Thinking about going with a EE quilt solution for Idaho archery elk during September. Would a 20 deg quilt be enough or should I push for a 10 deg quilt. As a bigger guy 5'11" 250lbs I have always hated mummy bags and thinking I want to try the quilt path.
