I definitely sleep cold and I'd like to be able to comfortably sleep down to around 20 degrees or so, as it pretty rarely drops below that here. That said, I don't know if I'd actually take advantage of that lower boundary very often. So I'm hoping a 20 degree quilt with a couple of ounces of overstuff will do the trick.

    I admit to being a bit of a gram weenie sometimes (at least, when I can afford it), otherwise this wouldn't be much of a decision at all. But considering that I'd have to bring a foot pad with the 3/4 anyways, the weight difference is something like 2 or 3oz. A good night's sleep is probably worth at least that.
    I should qualify my statement: I had HG make me a full length underquilt for my height (short-not 3/4) and had them make me a shorter topquilt just like LilPrincess (who told me about how she had hers done by HG). You should be fine with 20 degrees.

    Simple and easy, I wear a waterproof sportsbra and swimming bottom for underwear. Super easy to have a solar shower, or even take a quick dip in a stream or lake to clean up. Dry off a bit and put the overclothes back on. I've found this is the simplest way to keep clean and not have to worry about anyone getting a glimpse of any bit and bobs!

    I'm so excited to see this series of threads. I know when I first got into it and I bought my chameleon the buddy of mine who was helping me out wanted to know why I bought a big black tarp and an asym cover that just had the netting on the corner. He laughed and said why? He never has a full cover. I looked back at him and said "Cause I'm a girl!" I needed somewhere to change. He had never thought about it. So far I've hung in Arizona, Indiana and Wisconsin. Next year I'm looking at doing a trip to the boundary waters. Looking forward to reading a lot here. Thank you ladies!

    Thanks for this thread! I'm planning on backpacking with my son's Scouts BSA troop this upcoming year, and this was something I wanted to make sure I had "covered". I'm really trying to get the troop to embrace lightweight backpacking, so I don't want to bring a massive tarp with doors to change under.

    Plus, we now have a girl troop that does activities with the "boy troop", so I wanted to have some backcountry recommendations to pass along to the young ladies.
