    A -20F bag might be a bit overkill, large to pack and heavy.
    im not buying it because it's -20 im buying it because its the only bag that fits me haha im 6'6'' and most bags come up to my lower chest

    Sounds like if yours going to stick with hammocks you should just get a TQ made by one of the vendors that will fit you

    i'm sure if you PM stormcrow he could help you out with that
    It puts the Underquilt on it's hammock ... It does this whenever it gets cold

    A stormcrow made top quilt is a great way to go. However, if you would like something a bit less expensive, but at the expense of more bulk and a bit more weight, you might want to look into a 0 degree ArcticShield sleeping bag. Instead of using traditional insulation like down or poly-type, it uses a laminate layer similar to insultex, with a thin layer of hollow fiber surrounding the laminate. Using my compression sack, it compresses down to 8"x8". It only weighs 3 lbs, which for a 0-degree bag, is impressive, down or synthetic. The best part is that its only made for 6'6" height. The actual length of the bag is 84", I'm only 6' myself, makes it easy for me to duck completely buried into my bag on those really cold nights. I've had it down to 7 degrees F. and was completely warm and cozy. Unfortuately the retail chain that had exclusive rights to it,BassPro Shops, lost those right to another company that only sells on Ebay.

    They don't come much larger then this. Unless you go to full rectangular bag:
