I will be heading out for 5 nights in late December and am starting to second guess my set up. Have any of you done well without an UQ during low teen temps?

    Thanks Brian
    If you double up your pads and use a sleeping bag liner you will probably be fine. But by the time you carry all that bulk and weight you could probably get an underquilt. I used a 20* bag with no pad or quilt, and was COLD! With one pad in the low 40s I sweated like crazy on my back and had to leave my bag open some. With an under quilt at the same temps, I was warm all over. And felt much better!
