    WBBB 1.7 XLC UQ help.

    Hi everyone!
    I finally have a WBBB XLC DBL on the way. I been looking at tarps and finally decided on one.
    Now I am looking at TQ and UQ.
    I like what Loco libre Has to offer but more important is I can't decide on what to get in terms of how warm. 0 degree, 20 defree or 40 so on and so on. I camp mostly in Washington or Idaho.
    I was thinking a 20ish dedegree UQ would be ok and if used with a 20 TQ.
    Should I got lower than 20? I figured it can be loosend if it gets to hot but have no experience with that. I can't afford 2-3 UQ so need to make sure I get a do it all UQ. I do camp in winter every year so thats an other reason gor at least a 20. Would anyone recommend a Zero degree over the 20?
    So confused!
    I am ordering a winter tarp to keep elements out best I can.
    Can a 20 defree UQ with a 20 degree TQ go into the Teens and still work ok?
    So what do you use on your XLC and what fits best?
    Please help.

    I have the LocoLibre 20 top quilt and a 50 and love them. My next quilt will be a 0. I have used the 20 from the mid 70's down to the mid 40's and combined with my 3 season Yeti it's worked out perfectly so far. This is the year I hope to put some miles on my setup as soon as the weather breaks.

    I think I will go with either 20 or zero. Still undecided.
    Does your feet get cold with no pad? My feet always seem to be cold.

    I have full length quilts with the hot box foot box so no pads needed and my feet stay toasty. I too have really really cold feet. For my next Locolibre quilt I'm going to add the new option that George added to insert foot warmers into just in case I ever do get cold feet.

    I was looking at those pockets for hand warmers. I'd get that as a just in case thing.
    I might get a yeti but still looking at Loco Libre UQ's. I was thinking Synthetic but everyone swears by Down so still undecided???
