I'm planning an AT section hike from 19E to Mt. Rogers HQ in early September using a HH ULBA w/#2 zip mods/Speer 10x11 tarp. Expected low temps range from 45-55 degF. w/30's not uncommon. I sleep cold and am considering either of the following quilt combinations:
1) JRB Shenendoah UQ w/3/8"ccf pad/SPE/wings; JRB N'Sniveler TQ, w/lt wt l/s shirt/bottoms/hat/gloves; or
2) N'Sniveler UQ; Shenendoah TQ w/heavy fleece shirt/bottoms/hat/gloves/sox.
I'm leaning toward #1 cuz I expect I could handle 40 deg or slightly below with that set-up. With #2, I expect to handle 45 deg, but not much lower. I could take my JRB WeatherShield2, but I'd rather not carry the 8 oz. unless really bad weather is expected. Decisions, decisions, ...
Has anyone used the JRB quilts in these combinations? If so, your experience? Your assistance will be most WARMLY appreciated!
