Got it. I dont think I would like the wearable quilts like the rocky mountain. So would you say that I would be good to say the 30's with the yeti and something like the hudson river? I am fine with putting my pack or my clothes in a stuffsack under my legs.
I will not be out in the winter but I just said the 20s because you never know if its going to drop on you. I mainly want something thats 3 season and can keep me warm if there is an unexpected drop or if I'm high up. I'll say that I dont plan to be out there if its going to get to 30
the 3 season version (12.5oz)
I'd love to use my quilt as a poncho, but I don't think it'd fare too well round the fire.
Then get a 3-season top quilt and augment it with a jacket and/or insulated pants when you're going out in colder weather.
If I'm wearing my quilt around camp I always put my rainjacket over it. Much easier to clean a rainjacket if it gets dirty, or much cheaper to replace it if it get damaged.
Though my down jacket does have a few pinholes burned into it from fire embers. Wifey wasn't happy about that...

IMPOSSIBLE JUST TAKES LONGER
I don't use my wearable quilts around camp too much; best of intentions and all that. TAK is right about the fire and that's usually why I don't wind-up using the poncho as a quilt. BUT, I do very much appreciate those wearable quilts in the mornings. I love a frigid night, but loathe a cold morning. I can keep myself nice and warm while I'm packing-up. Also a nice way to put pants on with out the cold breeze hitting my giblets.
