    my personal preference is to always have something too warm than too cold - perfect example - I did an AT trip in April, forecast showed mid-high 50s, with altitude we would have been near high 40s. My trail partner brought a 40* bag and I had a 20* bag. Temps hit mid30s and he froze every night, with long underware - I was in shorts only and couldn't have told you it even got cold (till I woke up ready to get out of the rack).

    I have a 0degree Incubator and have been in temps anywhere from 42-65 and have been comfortable wearing shorts and a tank and in a mummy liner.

    I use a 20F JRB Mount Washington 3 UQ, and when the temp drops below 20F, I add a Thermarest pad and I'm good to below zero. I camp only a few times a year in -0F weather so it isn't worth it to me to have a 0F UQ, when the pad works great as a supplement with the only dedicated UQ that I own.

    Can they be hung on the same suspension or does the outer UQ have to hang on a separate looser suspensions?

    I agree and I'm a warm sleeper.

    Another thought, I got a 20* UQ from Paul and got some overfill down the center baffles only. It adds a little extra warm where I need it.

    I've got both 20F and 0F incubators with reg fills. The 0F is heavier and bulky. Most of the time, I have the 20F and has kelp me warm to 15F, but I had layers of clothing on also. below that, the 0F is really nice. If your temp range is mainly above 20F, I would stay with 20F. You can always add a Pad if colder also...
