    Id grab the 35 degree bag, id rather have it and vent it if its too warm than not have it and wish i did!
    Dale Gribble: I'm thinking, "new hammock." For me, laying and swaying in a hammock is like a steady morphine drip without the risk of renal failure.

    Sleeping bags alway give you "extra" since they're much bulkier than a quilt which is made for a hammock. I found I can go much lower with a sleeping bag in a hammock. Last winter, it was 3F and my 20 rated bag was plenty. Lots of extra down on top of me. Plus you probably have extra clothes, a fleece or jacket just in case.

    I agree with bringing the 35. The ratings are just the temps you would survive in, not what you would be comfortable in.

    35* bring, the ratings are low end with the assumption you've got proper shelter, clothing, and a full belly. I bring a 20* tq for anything over 40*,

    35* bag. I was out last night in Pisgah Nat Forest with a zlite and 27 year old 20* bag and was very comfortable. I debated taking a fleece bag but glad I went with the heavier option.

    The only reason not to take the warmer bag is the weight penalty, and then it comes down to how much weight and how far. I prefer to be warm and sleep.
