    HG Incubator 20 UQ. This was my first & would be again. I got 2 of the jarbrdges (or however u spell it) @ the sale a couple weeks ago but haven't had time to try them out yet. I'm sure they will be top notch for 3 season.

    For a TQ, I used a variety of sleeping bags for the last 10 years.. and got along just fine. Up until I picked up a HG burrow 20 in trade recently.. holy crap, what I was missing. If I could do it again, I'd go for the HG in a heartbeat.

    For an UQ, after spending a few cold nights in sleeping bags turned UQ, I went with insultex DIY, then primaloft.. then Apex (Jarbridge) to a 0 incubator short that JUST got ordered. (Early Xmas present from family)I have a feeling in a few weeks I'll be saying "If I could do it all over from the start.. I'd go straight to the HG"

    40 +1oz Burrow, which is what I have now. Comfortable down to 34 so far. Anything in the 20's and I'm thinking I'll stick with my sleeping bag. Not saying that won't change in the future though!

    p.s. the OP asked about TOPquilts

    I sort of waited around and looked for a deal in the for sale section, but then Enlightened Equipment had the RevX line at a price I couldn't resist and I have loved my RevX 20 ever since. I use it all the time. I did pick up a WB Mamba 0 deg in the for sale section for those really cold nights. I have had it down to 7 deg and it did it's job well.
