    That's because you have ice in your blood... J/K.

    Sounds like the test worked.

    IF that is not alot of clothing, what would qualify?
    I know you have "ice in your veins" but, in a backpacking situation, what other clothes would you have?
    Regardless, a 20 F improvement is impressive

    Not ice, but antifreeze!
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    Just a disclaimer note to any new folks...
    Neo is not "normal". He consistantly goes colder with less insulation than most hangers.
    That's not to say it can't be done...test temp ratings at home or car camping as to give yourself a safety out if you get too cold.

    Neo FWIW, smarter people here than me estimate mid-30's for a sewn-thru TQ (the jacksrbetter shenandoha quilt is sewn-thru) http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...?t=4362&page=3
    Like stated in that thread, add enough clothes and you can push down the temp rating of anything...

    That ia pretty good results for sure. I typically sleep in my BMW PG 14 oz hooded jacket and 8 oz pants. I have done about 48-52*F with this alone in reasonable comfort, in a HH SS. So it would probably take that Stealth down to about 20-25, if dry and out of the wind.

    Hey neo, I used my 40* North Face Alleghany sb as a top quilt to 12* last weekend with no cold issues - does that mean I'm "frigid" like you? I mean, have ice in my veins? What were you using/were you using an UQ?
