    I've had mine down to freezing without issues, but I do have a warmer rated bag than you. I think I would agree with OldMart, give it a try before you commit to a few days out.

    During the summer I find the stock HH tarp to be just fine, and light.

    Shoulder seasons and winter I prefer to move under something a little bigger, even if only to block wind.
