    If you could only have one... (TQ/UQ)

    If you could only have a TQ or UQ which would you want to keep you warmer at night?

    Say you could have either a TQ and a foam pad, or a UQ and a fleece bag liner. Which one would you bet on keeping you warmer?
    With beauty all around you, may you walk.

    Underquilt and the fleece liner. I've used it before and I get colder underneath.

    Under quilt you can use lots of things for a top quilt.

    Underquilt for sure. As has been said-lots of things work for a TQ, a UQ is pretty specific gear and oh so nice. YMMV.

    If I could only choose one, I would choose a pod, best of both worlds.
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    A top quilt won't protect you against the dreaded cbs. I would pick the under any day.

    My vote would be for the underquilt. I have used a sheet for a TQ but I love my UQ.

    Don't argue with the alligator until after you cross the river.

    8 out of 8 hammockers can't be wrong! I guess UQ is first on the buy list.
