I think you could very easily hit your target with room to spare.
I would have to agree with SGT Rock IX works for some but not others, but I wouldn't write it off without a test drive. Maybe there's someone near you that has one that you could try???
Kind of funny, the IX experience seems to be about like the HHSS experience: great for some, terrible for some, some in the middle.
And even funnier, while I have had some great HHSS experiences and none I would really call bad, my experience with IX has never met expectations. Not as bad as Sgt. Rock's, but I never came very close to getting to freezing. However, I still think I might could do better in the future as I was getting better results each time I used it. And mine was one of the originals with no end channels or draft tubes etc.
My best night with IX was the time I added that same UQ inside my PeaPod. That was one warm night, way more than similar nights without the IX.
But at the opposite end of the spectrum are TeeDee and Tiredfeet, both of whom I believe have been plenty warm enough with 3 layers at 11F. So it must have some potential, but apparently fit is even more critical than we are used to.
