I live full-time in my car in the mountains of eastern Nevada and the temperatures regularly dip into the single digits during the winter (the average is about 15 F). The backpacking quilts I use work great but lack a hood to keep my head warm and I found that a wool cap is not sufficient when the temperatures dip below 20 F. This hood picks up where the wool cap leaves off. It is incredibly light and ridiculously warm. I have found that in temperatures above freezing that it is a little too warm for my tastes. So even though this says it's good up to 40 F, in my experience it might be a little too warm for that high of a temp. That said, it works down into single-digit temperatures with no problems.
My head always felt too cold using my quilt during shoulder season here in Minnesota. Looked around for some options and tried this down hoodie and it worked perfectly, stayed on and kept my head warm the whole night (used down to ~23*F) Highly recommend!
Great way to help extend your quilt into lower temps. Very well made. I prefer not using the arm straps but those are super easy to take on or off.
this thing is sooooo warm- like too warm if your in anything higher than 20-30 degrees F.... but its nice to sleep in in cold conditions or to wake up and put on in the morning when its chilly
The crestone hood is one of the pieces you just have to own. The quality of this garment is out of this world the stitching and the feel of it is second to none.
