    I use a Lost Ranger 15F bag during the non winter months and love it. I'm slowly thinking of trying the top quilt idea but not willing to pull the money trigger yet.

    I dont use the pad in the W.B. as my bottom quilt works just fine, however if I use my Eureka Chrysalis I will use the pad as the eureka lets me sleep flat and on my side if I want to.

    I use a BA Encampment and thermarest pad in the winter. Spring and fall I have a North Face Dolomite. Both bags work well for me I don't use the pad with the NF bag.

    I've used my Big Agnes Insulated Air Core and my BA Encampment with the air core partially inflated many times - only to the mid 40's , then it's time for the underquilt for anything colder.
    I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."

    Like others, I started with a BA Horse Thief and then moved to a Lost Ranger for colder weather. The issues with restriction and movement pushed me to UQ's, but I continued to use the Horse Thief until I bought my first TQ. I keep both of them however, just in case I would ever have a reason (unlikely) that I would ever sleep on the ground again.

    BA makes great gear, if they made a TQ I would probably buy one.

    Thanks all.

    I had a sneaky suspicion that the BA would be a good route. To assume never needing/wanting to go to ground is just foolish IMNSHO.

    I just wanted to see if anyone had used that particular brand.

    I'm not decided on BA, I may do a diy thingy based on the idea.

    I love hammocks, but I will not play the part of a non thinking fanboy, and I don't have more money than sense, as many unnamed hammock lovers seem to have.

    You are star dust, not some magic spell.
