    pro & cons of 0 vs 20 degree under quilt?

    Just wondering what would be the draw backs of going with the 0 degree underquilt as opposed to the 20 degree besides weight,cost and size. What I would like to know is will the 0 be too warm in say 30 degree weather? I have never hammocked yet I am waiting for delivery of my clark nx 250.

    I wouldn't worry about being too warm with a 0* UQ in 30 degrees. However, you might get more use out of a 20* UQ. I've used mine from 70* to 15 degrees. The 0* is likely gonna be to hot in the upper ranges.
