  5. 40 Degree Underquilt Question - Overstuff 1oz or not?

    Thoughts here? Just a waste of money to add an 1oz to a 40 degree one?

    I already have a 20 degree UQ so this is really a summer one and/or loaner quilt. I'd also use it in winter to stack.

    Probably should add in there too that a year ago or so, I was up around 180 but I dropped some (unnecessary) weight and am now down to a nice 165. Height is 5'10" if that matters too.
