What are the advantages of using a TQ over a quality sleeping bag? Is the main advantage weight savings? You lose some versatility going with a TQ, but if the weight savings was significant I guess I can see the advantage.
The way I see it, I'm going to spend about the same amount of money so why not go with a good bag that has more versatility. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
You are right on the money. In fact, depending on the temp rating, many down bags can be found this time of year (close out/ last years model) for much less than a TQ. Whether a TQ is worth the extra money depends on how far you plan to carry it.
