    Lightest TQ for 20-30 degrees?

    Pretty much what the title says. There's an excel sheet in the UQ forum that charts all of them by pretty much every relevant stat, but no such thing for top quilts. Since I currently have a sleeping bag that, while I like it, is 2 pounds 10 oz and is rated for 20 degrees, I'm wondering if there's a lighter 3-season option out there and what it might be. I tend to need plenty of warmth, that's why I'd want a 20 degree TQ even if, in reality, I'd be taking a whole other winter setup if I actually expected 20 degree weather.

    I'd look into a custom Burrow by Hammock Gear. 7D shell. I just got a summer one and their silky smooth.
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    Here is a link to a chart that was done-- https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/...EE&hl=en#gid=0

    Here is the thread which contained it- http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ht=quilt+chart

    Hey, I had seen the chart but it doesn't seem to contain many top quilts. I'm sure there have to be more out there than what's listed, which is why I was curious.

    Did Joe from Zpacks just start offering the lightest 20* TQ? I thought someone was telling me about that at MAHHA...

    Hammock gear makes fantastic stuff no doubt. I have a Golite 20 degree quilt that is a little under 19 ounces and has worked very well for me for years

    I've been looking for a decent top quilt for a while now, and I have found that for the most part, any 40* down quilt will be ~15 oz, 20* will be ~19-21 oz, and your 0* will be ~23-25. So it's whatever color scheme/loft/material/vendor/price you prefer. I'm saving my pennies for one of leighlo's new 40* top quilts to match the underquilt! (i wish she did some kind of discount to people that already owned an underquilt haha oh well, wishful thinking)

    I wish Leighlo would post the packed weight of their full length UQ's. They do like nice...
