    I really like the JRB high Sierra snivvler and the mt Washington 4.

    I use a 20 wookie for my 4 season quilt. Just sold my winter quilt. I find the wookie to be more than true to rating. I've used it at 20 in breezy conditions with an asym tarp and a uqp and was toasty.

    Best part about the wookie is you can add a pad between the layers on the odd trip you might need a little extra.

    It's also 0 fiddle factor. Colder or gets the more you feel every gap or breeze. None of that with the wookie.

    That's my recommendation. 20 wookie.

    Thanks for the replies. I now have more options to choose from. Thanks.... Haha. I know I'll be getting the high Sierra sniveller for a tq.

    If you already have a costco blanket, you can get a 20d "good quilt" and stack them together for extra cold situations. Then you've got options for all 4 seasons.

    I live in Chattanooga @ about 870ft.

    Depends on where you are going to be sleeping.

    I use mine mostly at home on my deck and I have found that the 10 Greylock 4 UQP and the 25 Hudson River with a fleece quilt liner covers my needs about 90% of the time (late fall>early spring months in the South).

    I have some data in my signature that I logged before I went on a 30 mile hike in NC (NOC to FD). I went in March and I basically used the same setup. The Greylock 3-4 has a wide range and is more forgiving on hi/lo quilts are a different story.

    I am in the NE and use the HG 20F as my winter quilt... been to the mid-teens more than once. Stacking would be a added bonus. Just be sure to try setting it up while at home..
    Yes, my pack weighs 70lbs, but it's all light weight gear....
