    That's what I do for April-Oct but being Canadian I also have a 20* TQ for when the weather gets back to normal.

    I have been talking to Adam at HG about this very same thing.
    I have ordered a 0,0 setup for this winter and will get a 20* TQ next spring. Adam said a 0* BQ is no prob as it gets warmer you can easily vent, it's the TQ that will generally over heat you. But if your back is cold as many have said its a bad night.

    Below freezing, I use the same Speer Top Blanket and lots of insulation in the UQ!

    Yep, dialed in for most of my cold weather camping...HG 20* Phoenix and HG 40* Burrow, slept warm and comfortable to 39*, I think with adequate clothing, I can get close to 30* and be fine. I sleep soo much cooler in a hammock, which is why I love it for summer camping! I THINK I can get away with one setup, but I can clearly see why you northern cold weather hangers need 2 sets, pads, socks, etc...
