40 rated Phoenix is listed at 11.7 oz and with one ounce over fill it'd be 12.7
20 rated Phoenix is listed at 16.7 oz
I have been able to push my Hammock Gear quilts a solid 5-8 degrees below rating however my wife can not. She is a cold sleeper. The ratings are much truer for her then they are for me. Again it just depends on weather or not the person using the quilts are a cold or hot sleeper and how much insulation (clothing) you are wearing. And are you getting one for you and one for you wife. If so you could always get one 20 rated and one 40 rated and take it from their.
Good luck on your search for your warm comfy UQ.
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.
