mods, this is for both TQ's & UQ's, so i put it here since there wasnt one place that covered both
i emailed and talked to mike at Te-Wa and he gave me some great advice, and im not doubting him but i wanted to know what "real world" users think. heres the gist:
since im a little ways off from being able to afford a set of quilts, im studying up.
im in south carolina, and cant say im going to be doing a ton of camping in the winter, but even if i did it rarely ever gets down to under 30. i prefer to sleep in as little as possible (ie, boxers) for comfort, so im trying to factor that in too.
i would be using any set of quilts with either an ENO DN or a WBBB 1.7DL and a superfly with doors for full coverage. I will not be using a pad, unless its for the foot box. Because i wont be able to have a quilt for every situation, i need a set for all situation.
he suggested a 3 season UQ and a summer TQ, since the UQ will help keep you warmer. Ive not heard that, but it makes sence.
The ONLY thing im not a fan of with Te-Wa is the shiny material, but thats it. and it seems that just about everyones got the same thing going on.
Does all that sound like a good setup, or should i think more of both being summer weight. the price difference isnt too terrible with these, so im probably being paranoid. i guess i could always vent either way.
