    I currently have a Speer Universal SnugFit for my 3 season UQ that works real good with my BB 1.7 double. I've slept in in down into the high 20s and it's been real nice... Of course, I am a warm sleeper, so YMMV.

    My next purchase is going to be the MWUQ from JRB for my cold weather UQ... Just have to pay off some bills first...

    Warbonnet makes an UQ...the Yeti
    Comes in a 3 season and a winter version. I have the winter version and have used it to 4*F with -25 wind chill. Other have used it below zero.
    It is 2/3 length and you use a pad under your legs/feet. Great product.
    I believe that he will have some available for sale after Trail Days..search the forums for more info

    Side note...an UQ will not replace your sleeping bag. It will replace your pad from tent days but you will still need a bag or quilt (and a warm one below zero!)

    I would be one of the "others".
    I've used both the Winter Yeti and its predecessor the synthetic torso length below zero; double digits with both of them. Very efficient uqs and light to boot! I've got the 3-Season version too and am comfortable down into the 20s with it. Hands down my favorite solution for keeping my bum warm.
    Trust nobody!
