Love my Cosmic 20!
I got mine for $140 here in Canada. Mine is the blue and silver one in the review, not the yellow one I have seen (don't know if they're different).
I use it like a TQ, infact I have toyed with removing the zipper for weight and potential damage to my hammock, just not that brave yet. It is pretty light for the price and quite comfy.
As the review said, buy the Cosmic and with the money you save get some better gear (i.e. lighter pack, or I say a good UQ).
“The word 'hammockable' (describing two trees that are the perfect distance apart between which a hammock can be hung) is not in the dictionary, but it should be.”

Went out this past weekend for a hang with the scouts. I used my Kelty like a TQ. Temps got down to freezing and I was very warm. I used my thermarest and a CCF pad and was wearing light thermals and socks.
