    i'd say about 70 degrees... consequentially that is also the same temps that a light fleece top will take me to

    Please remember that the very same UQ or TQ can be used by many different people and you'll get just as many different temp. ratings for what the quilt will keep you warm at. Those ratings that you see listed are basicly just guide lines. Every one of us then has to test our own gear to find out what temps WE can use that piece of gear at. This quilt that I got at EB seems to be similar to my summer UQ that I made for my Clark Hammock. That UQ will take me to about 45 comfortably and down to 35 where I'm alive but chilly. I wont know what this EB quilt will do until I've been able to test it. I'm just about positive that it will be usefull well below 70 degrees "for ME". And I'm a very cold sleeper!! Although again, I wont be sure until I've actually tested it, which wont be done until the outside temps go up again.

    Maybe it's because I live in WI, but I can use a simple cotton bedsheet at 70*.

    I wish they sold these in my store. I'd love to check them out, although my wife would probably be annoyed with my buying them. She doesn't mind me buying things, she just doesn't like me buying things and finding they don't do as much as I need them to. She'd fully support a quality underquilt purchase if I 1) used it a lot, and 2) bought the one I needed and then stopped looking at them. I'm not quite ready to commit yet though.

    #1 is completely up to you! Actually, so is #2, although I personally don't think #2 is all that reasonable since you of course have to keep up with current trends in the industry . Besides, you can always sell a quilt if you don't want it for any reason! You know somebody here would be happy to buy it. (How am I doing, convinced yet?)

    like i said. i based my findings off the quilt i saw, which wouldn't cover my entire body and lofted to less than 1/2 inch. so i would expect similar warmth from wearing a fleece top and bottom or like kyk said, a cotton sheet...

    there are tons of variables that can get factored into "what will this keep me warm to"...

    i usually assume wearing a thin t shirt and shorts when i talk temps. other variables i assume include: eating a good hearty dinner, cleaning my body off with water, hiking during the day and sleeping in the woods (a HUGE difference from just walking out in the back yard and setting up the hammock)...
