I'm builing an ultralight kit for 3 season backpacking. I currently own a HG 0 degree underquilt and a Phoenix 3/4 20 degree underquilt. The next step is something I can use for most of three seasons in Missouri including the summers. I've looked at getting a 40 degree HG Phoenix but there's really only about 3 oz of difference between that and my 20. For so little weight difference I'd be inclined to simply make due with my 20 degree Phoenix.
I've been looking at Te-Wa brand underquilts; they seem to have a 40 degree UQ that only weights 10.5 onces so that would be a significant weight savings.
I'm looking for recommendations for a truly ultralight underquilt. This will be teamed up with a Darien UL hammock that only weights around 13 oz or so.
for the top quilt I'm looking at Zpacks 40 degree top quilt that only weights a tad over 11 oz.
The goal is to come up with a low weight, low volume TQ, UQ and Hammock for true 3 season use here in Missouri.
Your thoughts and experience are highly sought and appreciated!!
