    I have one of their previous quilts and its a great bang for their buck. They still plan to offer quilts. They're just revamping their lineup right now.

If I get a 20* top quilt and a 20* bottom quilt, will i be too hot at night?...I am a pretty warm sleeper to begin with, if I do have a problem spot it is cold feet sometimes. Tell me what you guys think...I don't mind spending a little extra on the 20* stuff, but want to make sure i am not going to roast.

    I'd go with 20* top and bottom quilts. That way, you'll be good to go the majority of the time. I live in the Adirondacks in NY and by watching the weather forecasts and picking my dates, I camped out once a month all fall and winter. When it gets warm, venting the UQ works fine, and I just use a fleece sleeping bag liner and/or cheap fleece blanket instead of a top quilt. I thought I'd be adding 40* rated quilts to my arsenal later on, but I really don't see myself spending the money; it just doesn't seem that necessary to me.

    Thanks for all the good info everyone!! I think I am going to go with 20* TQ and 20* UQ that way i am prepared for the cold if I so choose...I live at the base of a mountain, and it is hitting mid to low 30's at night still on the mountain right now...so if I want a true 3 season solution I think the 20* for both is my best option. I also like the idea of just using the fleece liner for warmer nights.

    Thanks Again!!

    I don't have a TQ, yet...looking at a Burrow 20* from HG. I have the 0* Phoenix from Adam, love it...stay really toasty. I have used my 20* synthetic bag from ALPS Mountaineering as a TQ, works, but the hood is a pain, and even if I remove it, it's still really bulky and heavy.

    I went with the 0* Phoenix based on a call with Adam...I live in WI and talked to him about the areas that I will be going in to. He recommended to go into the 0*, not the 20*, as I could just vent it. It's a choice that I made and haven't regretted it. Real tests will come this summer, and seeing how I will sleep on all the Scout Campouts we go on...

    Good Luck, let us know what you find!

    Top Quilt Purchase

    I use my 20* Phoenix all year. If I decide to do some really cold camping I bring my jarbridge and use both the Phoenix and the jarbridge together.

    I didn't see where anybody mentioned Leigh's quilts at HammockQuilts.com.
    She sells 30* and 15* quilts.
    Perhaps the 30* would be a good compromise between the 20* and 40*.

    I sleep hot - so that set up would be too much for me - unless I kept my TQ pretty loose and an arm and leg outside it most of the time.

    And LeighLo is liquidating her inventory with really low prices right now, though she is selling out fast.
