    Shenandoah quilt

    Is anyone using this quilt as a TQ? How low has it taken you?

    Alternatively has anyone used it as an UQ?

    I'm pretty interested in this versatile piece of gear if it really can be rigged as an UQ effectively. I'm a super warm sleeper and had hoped a combo like this could get me to 35 or 40.

    I have used it as a top quilt. I went to 30F once with it, under a large closed in tarp. I wore a primaloft jacket, a wool long john shirt, fleece pants, and had a primaloft vest over my legs under the quilt. Slept fine.

    Using it as a TQ been down to freezing wearing just baselayers, a longsleeve fleece, socks and a knit hat. Plenty warm.

    I'm a warm sleeper and I've been warm to 30F while using as a TQ and also using a 20F UQ.
