    Just as another follow up to my initial outing:

    Went out this weekend under very similar circumstances/temps as my initial test. Temps were down to 34* per my thermometer. I did not get cold - in fact I was quite comfortable sleeping in just my boxers with the quilts and my 2QZQ UQP. The differences were that I wasn't sick, and hadn't had any NyQuil. I should also state that I made a slight adjustment in the hang of my UQ - I may not have had it tight enough before. I still feel like the 20* rating is a bit optimistic, but in low-30s I was quite comfortable.

    To come up with a rating of 20 degrees are there just 2 layers just sewn together?

    There is a second layer in the "middle" that makes it thicker. The thicker part doesn't run the full length of either quilt. After my most recent outing, I feel much better about the purchase, especially at the price point.

    EDIT to add: That being said, you'd likely be cold at 20*. I was fine at 30*.
