    It's not the mail drop that I don't want, it's that I don't want to be caught in the cold with a 40* TQ. I'm leaving Maine in July which would be warm, until I start climbing, where there is still snow on the ground. So I guess the 20* SS would be better, bundle up in the cold, and strip down when it's warm.....

    I have hiked a lot in the Whites and MA and even in the Summer if it's raining/windy it can get pretty cold- 35-45 at night.

    My experience last Summer was that my 32 degree Nest did not add significantly to how hot I felt in my hammock on warm to hot Summer nights.
    I used a Mt Washington 4 from Springer to Pearisburg and Hanover to Katahdin, Nest the rest of the way.
    My experience is that too much under insulation does not seem to add to discomfort on hot nights so I would think the zero underquilt should work for the entire hike.

    I just reread the OP and see its a question on top quilts not underquilts so my last post is off subject.
    I would carry the top quilt that keeps you warm in the lowest expected temperature for your hike.
    I used a 20 deg WM bag from Springer to Pearisburg and Hanover to Katahdin and with my MW4 I was always warm at night.
    I used a Hammock Specialties 32 deg top quilt the rest of the way, most of the time it was by my feet and pulled over me in the early hours of the morning.
