the UCO is worth much more than 10F degrees

inside of my mylar and absorbent bag assembly than it was inside of just the extra plastic bags. The 4x8 ft bags are JUST barely large enough to let you use the UCO lantern. Do not light the lantern with it inside of the bags. always light it outside. The "pack flat" reflector, sold for the UCO on Amazon, is necessary as a base-extender and so is the enlarged base sold. So there goes another $20. But the UCO makes this set up adequate to 0F without any extra clothing. With the netting wrapped around you, under your clothing, and the longjohns, beanie, gloves, and longjohns, it's going to handle -10F, I"m certain of it, but it never gets that cold here for me to confirm it. Hot rocks or hot water will suffice to 0F, and will let you sleep at 10F. They make the setup too hot at 20F if you're really buttoned up and have on the extra clothing. This is easily fixed, of course, just by un-zipping or if you haven't installed the zippers, by removing one or more of the strings you've used to tie shut wads of the opening of the bag. The zippers make this set up a lot less hassle, but they'd cost a bundle if somebody else installed them for you. As in $50 more per bag.

How about a picture of this wonderful invention or is it a top secret. To most people it sounds like something that should have been thrown in the nearest dumpster.

Cobbled up crap that he doesn't have anyway. Ole Melvin has NEVER produced a picture of a single thing. First he didn't own a camera, then he couldn't figure out how to post a picture. I'm anxiously waiting for his next excuse. Of course the truth is none of this exist's except in his own world. What we he need it for anyway? To sleep in the alley? To put over a heating grate?

He don't need to sleep in the alley when he has the van but maybe it is parked in some alley without the battery since they stole it while he was passed out from the drugs.

My gear is perfectly warm to colder temps, weighs less, packs smaller, and is more durable. I applaud the experimentation, but without pictures, it reads like made up b.s.

I’d really like to see what is being described, because it sounds, well silly.
