    I see a lot of people saying, "warmer UQ"...I think this is were it gets personal. In my experience, I like using a warmer TQ than UQ. One of the things that really factors into the decision is the tarp and orientation. If you have a smaller tarp, or have it rigged high, you expose more of the underside to wind. This will leech more warmth from your insulation and thus, less heat to rise. If you have a relatively big tarp, have doors closed, and/or set low, perp to the wind...etc., etc., etc., then I think you can go lighter on the underside, because more warmth is left to rise. A heavier TQ helps to retain the heat and prevents it from excaping onward and upward.

    This is just based on my experience and personal preferences. I sleep warm and like cold sheets, so a warmer TQ is always better for me. For the record, I switch between an OES MacCat Deluxe, a JRB 10x11, and now a WB Superfly. Adding a sock to the rig has allowed me to reduce my UQ requirements even further.

    Just something to consider in your decision making paradigm.

    Cheers,
