    I'm a warm sleeper, and have done 20F in a MSS green bag with a z-lite pad with only a little morning chilliness...

    I think that a 20F bag with a full length pad should certainly take you down to 25-30F...

    In the interest of full disclosure, I generally hammock-camp wearing a balaclava and socks to bed, and also try to snack up before bed...

    i got down to the low 30s just fine, i did better then my friends in a tent who said they were cold all night. i used my sleeping bag like a quilt its only 3/4 zipper so it made a nice foot box and iwas able to tuck the extra sleeping bag that would of been under me to keep my shoulders nice n warm

    My experience was fairly similar a couple weeks ago I used a Ridgerest and a Thermarest guidelite 3/4 with my Western Mountaineering 10+ bag as a top quilt. Got down very close to freezing and it was plenty warm at times almost too warm.

    I am guessing I could go close to 0 with that set up. I have used the WM bag down to -5 with no problem by itself but it would be very awkward to use the bag in the hammock. I do wish the pads were a little wider as every time I got a little gap between the pad and the sleeping bag I would get a cool spot. Simple enough to fix just shift or tuck the bag around like you mentioned.

    i wasnt uncomfortable with my thermarest at all, i slept on my side so it was enough coverage. i was the last one up at camp my buddies had to shake me which never happened in a tent

    i was still the first one packed up n ready to go while they were still folding there tent and what not

    i would like to purchase a underquilt for winter but iwas super comfortable with the pad, i was thinking of getting a sheet for it so it would feel softer on the skin. but that would be my only complainant about the pad is the roughness, but im just being a baby
