    That is my favorite TQ and in my area it is a 4 season TQ.
    The quality and price cannot be beat....


    I just noticed that they are on sale again and free shipping.
    That is a smoking good deal!

    Did I read that right, the 1 season is your 4 season TQ?

    Yes sir.
    Where I live it does not get too cold.
    I would say that a really cold winter would be in the high 20's and that does not happen very often.
    Plus I think the temp rating is very conservative. For me I could take the 1 season down to around 20 degrees but everyone is different so you have to decide what works for you.
    Happy hanging

    I have the 3 season and it is comfortable from 65 down to 28 so far. Very light, very nice feeling fabric. I was thinking of getting a 1 season also, but this one sleeps fine at 65-68. I just stick a leg out as needed. I don't need the 1 season so far as I can tell, but I just ordered one, this price is too good to pass up! I gotta hide the card when I come to this forum!!! Thanks for the tip, I appreciate it even though the budget is complaining.

    TX...SC, not a tremendous difference I don't think. But you guys deal with a heck of a lot more wind which make the hanging cooler I'd think

    How cold have you taken it with what UQ and did you wear a lot of extra clothes?

    Also how small does it pack? Any packed pics with reference objects? Thanks for your review.

    I am down by Houston so the wind is probaly not anymore than anywhere else. I have only been out in the low 30's wearing fleece pants, a cotton long sleeve shirt, wool socks, fleece cap and at the time a 20* incubator. I was toasty warm and had to kick off my shocks and shirt. I think the key to any setup is the UQ . I am a hot sleeper and got rid of the 20* incubator because it was just too warm for
    me and now use a JarBridge since it works on my RR like a full length UQ . It's all going to depend on your location, cloths, and most important your UQ. I did have a 40* Phoneix UQ that I wish would of kept. I think that the 40* Phoenix with and the GoLite 1 season TQ would of been a perfect match for me and my hanging habits.
    That is why I say it's a 4season TQ for me since I can use it all year around here due to my location.
    I will try to get a couple of pics today of it with it's stuff sack.
    Happy Hanging
