    Putting together an order from George right now and your comment is making me rethink having him add 2 ounces of overstuff... lol

    My -10 Habanero was always always kept my buttocks and back toasty. Really nice in those good cold temps we all crave to hammock in.

    extra ounce of down
    Well I am probably too late to the party.
    Its not all about an ounce or two of down its baffle depth.
    A 2" baffle vs a 3.5" there is a huge difference in warmth with the same fill.

    When Marty Gallimore from Wilderness Logic, God rest his sole, and me designed this winter UQ we did not give it a temp rating.
    It sports 3.5" baffles and 48 oz of down.

    I would love to see single digits. My reaper has four ounces overfill and the lowest that I have gotten it too was 28F with a slight breeze. I would love to see some "Shug" weather !

    OutandBack - where's your favorite place in CO to take that monster?

    Of course, I agree about baffle depth being much more important than overstuff - that's science! I was just saying that I thought George gave me an awful lot of value for the money. I think a *little* overstuff helps in humid conditions (maybe not such an issue at 0 degrees!), and I always seem to lose a little down over time.

    Where did you find 28F in Florida? It was 80F when I left Naples last week!

    I was born and raised in the Panhandle and it can get down below freezing there... not very often, though!

    Ossining must have been a shock! But, now, you're the subfreezing-weather canister stove maven!
