    I camped out one really hot night last summer with a 40 topquilt that I had mostly kicked off and my Phoenix 3/4 20 hung but pulled all the way to one side.About an hour or two before dawn it was time to engage the underquilt.Better to have them than not in summer.Since I usually sleep cold I seldom get overheated in the hammock once the sun is down.

    I have a 0 degree Wooki and I am able to sleep most of the year pretty comfortably. I am a cold sleeper though and get cold easily. The biggest downside I experience is that it takes up a lot of room in my pack. I made a DIY UQ from a Costco throw and a DIY UQ 30 degree to give me more flexibility. Also, it will give the the ability to stack quilts this winter to stay warmer when it really gets cold out

    Maybe it is my age. I am 50.

    I use my Zeppelin the same way - 70*F down to 20*F - I only break out the Zero when temps or wind dictate below 10* or so. I am also about your age 46 and like sleeping HOT. For example I don't like wind blowing on me when I'm sleeping - it could be 80 in the bedroom and I need a sheet on me.....
    HYOH and better yet try lots of different stuff - You never know what you're hang is until you try a bunch of different things that don't work. Experience IS wisdom but so is learning what is GOOD advice

    I forgot my 40 UQ last night @ Guntersville Lake, AL
    I think it got down to about 73 last night.
    I put my UQP on for some warmth...worked until about 5am.
    The Greylock 3/4 would definitely have been too hot in August in NE Alabama.

    In summer I love my 40 under quilt and my 50 top quilt. They pack small and there is no fiddling trying to vent the under quilt to stop getting a sweaty back.

    In winter my 20 under quilt is much better at keeping me warm. Where I camp, the 20 is enough, so there is no need for a 0 under quilt.

    Whether owning two sets of quilts is a problem would probably depend on your finances, some people can easily afford it while others need to be a bit more careful with their spending.
