    Bought the exact same setup (HG Econ 20+3) last fall and absolutely love it. Live in western Washington State so performance when it is damp for days on end was more of a concern than a few extra ounces of pack weight. The +3 is likely overkill but my UQ is so toasty warm and instantly lofty that I trust it will exceed temperature specifications when needed and has worked well for days on end in the 40f+/- foggy, misty dampness that is normal for most of the year.

    Henge have had some War Bonnet UQ in stock (late last year iirc) but they sold out pretty quick. They didn't do WB or any quilts when I was buying. May have considered a wooki if they had them at the time. Although I'm happy with the HG having used it. I find it's easy to adjust and it gives the option to lay in either direction (I sleep either way depending on mood/aches 'n pains). Which is easy enough to change with my Symmetrical Moonlight top, but a bit of a pain with the asym net. I stick with HLFR from late spring to late autumn.

    It's hard to beat the climate we get down south, despite the mixed weather patterns it's generally pretty mild and manageable. Although I was out in a couple of those mini hurricanes, which was interesting...a tree missed my car by 6 feet, and a massive limb from a crown missed me by about 8 feet. It was a healthy tree and limb and didn't resemble a dodgy widow maker. If I had known how close it came I would probably have wet my UQ. I never even heard it come down...literately tripped over it the next morning. Those high winds sure make you respect the woods/nature and appreciate any good fortune that comes your way.

    That was close then, glad it missed you , went for 3oz overstuff just for packing out the baffles a bit more so does not migrate so much, i hope this will help, not for temps,as you say south of England it dips down, but easily manageable its the rain I get fed up with,i look at the y tube clips of hanging in the USA 2ft deep in snow, they manage ok by looks of things and keep smiling, so its just about having the right kit and mindset.

    Hg is good quality. Can't go wrong with it. You'll be happy.

    My first UQ was a 20* from HG. They make a great product. I still have and use that quilt when the temperatures start dropping.
