    TQ & UQ Degree question for AT thruhike 2013

    First Post!!! I'm wanting to purchase an UQ & TQ soon, but I'm not sure what degree combination I should use for my thru. I'll be starting mid March, and I know how cold the weather can get here in the Smokies...I was looking at doing the HammockGear 3/4 0 Degree UQ, and doing a 40 Degree TQ in hopes of being able to mix and match what I'll use depending on the weather. Not sure if this is a good idea and am looking for opinions! Thanks!

    everyone is different. a carried a 20 degree top and bottom in march. you might consider a 20 bottom and 40 top if you are not going to swap out up the trail.

    I started in Jan and went with a 30 top and bottom with a pad for more range and sleeping options. I went down to the single digits with that and some clothing but never went to ground.
