    I would get the quilt for the temps you will be in. 0* quilt will keep you warm for sure in 10 degree temps while a 20 may not even overstuffed.

    I would consider what temps at which you plan to spend MOST of your time camping.

    I wouldn't want to carry a 0 degree rig all the time if I'm only looking at pushing the limits of a 20 degree set up, on a rare or very infrequent basis.

    I've gone to about 17 degrees with my 20 degree UQ + 40 degree TQ, supplemented with med base layers, fleece hood, and socks. Instead of looking for more down to accommodate a drop to 10 or lower, I'd try further supplementing with CCF and/or Reflectex, maybe heavier base layers, maybe not. Hot Water Bottle! Especially if I didn't expect or prefer to camp at those temps MOST of the time.

    I'm not even sure a 0 degree kit will fit comfortably for me in less than 4500 cu in.

    Based on your location, I'd say both 20 degree with 4 oz overstuff and the 0 degree normal are both massive overkill. Just try a 20* full length UQ first before going all Minnesota when you're living in North Carolina.

    I agree with SS. a 20* set up is fine for your normal gear. I use a combination of items depending on temps. My DIY JCpenny quilt will supplement under me and a army green patrol bag fits nicely inside of my 30* top quilt. That combination will get me around 0* easily.
