I am so new at all this and still learning. Hoping you can help me trouble shoot why I am chilled at night. I bought a Feathered Friends Egret UL 20F 950 down fill bag. This was not a cheap bag. This weekend I was out for my first night in Colorado and got pretty chilly. My tent is a tarp tent Moment DW with the mesh interior, so it's really more like a tarp because its not a solid interior. I am using a Big Agnes insulated Double Z mat. I am not cold from the ground. But (i know this will sound crazy) but my butt was cold. I sleep on my side and this pushes me right up against my bag. I had long fleece pants on, no socks and my feet were fine, not cold. On top I had a short sleeve tech shirt then a long sleeve tech shirt and a fleece. I was comfortable on top. I ended up stuffing my down jacket in my bag over my butt and that helped. But by moving I was getting chilly all over. The low according to weather was only 37F, however a few weeds on the ground next to my tent had frost. So why was I cold? I just ordered a solid inner lining to my tent to see if that helps.
