I'm currently using an Enlightened Equipment ProdigyX TQ with a Hennessy double-bubble pad in a Hennessy Expedition Asym Zip.
At 30° I wake up with painfully cold feet and am shivering all night. I feel warm on top but it's cold underneath me. I think it's time to go for an under quilt. JrB seems like a popular choice and I've got a couple Qs:
1) given my cold feet, I'm thinking about going full length. It gets cold in Arizona at night. I'd like to be comfortable to 20°. Am I crazy to go full length?
2) which full length JrB UQ fits a Hennessy zip best? Nest or Mt. Washington?
Any advice would be welcome.
