    Have you gotten an actual temp rating below 30 on it?

    I have gotten reports back for as low as 17 degrees. But of course each person is different. With my own testing I would say 25 would be very fair for most folks to expect from the FlameThrower.

    I love my lost river, I've been out in 10F weather before and I somehow managed through the night. I am going to invest in a down UQ in the near future and would like to keep ordering from AHE since it's some of the best gear I own.

    I was comfy at 24F and light blowing snow with my flamethrower.

    PG does a good job on his down quilts. I have a full length for the cooler temps and a partial for 3S. If you have been in the teens with a Lost River, the Flamethrower should get you to the same place without any problems. I wouldn't hesitate buying another one from PG and company, especially if he does the trailhead delivery option.

    My buddy Doc has one and loves it. He's been in the high 30's with it and had to start peeeling off layers.

    Yeah, but you're hardcore.
