    Honestly, don't trust any of us. Go to a group hang, try different ones, and see what you like.

    I don't think you mentioned it.. Has she slept in either of your hammocks? Or backpacked?

    Definitely an underquilt would serve you better. You can match that with your existing sleeping bag and be set. That is exactly what I do for temps around 20*, which are below my top quilt range.
