If the bag is truly good for 20, then for sure 20. But my experience is totally based on using a thin ccf pad -- the blue el cheapo variety. I have no thermarest experience.
Use hiking clothing inside the bag to extend the range. Don't forget to really wrap up your head.
I used a bag on a pad many a time before I bought a bag with a little footbox zipper so I can pull the bag around the hammock. I find sleeping on a pad in a hammock easy and comfortable. Most don't but I like it quite a bit.
