    When it's 50 degrees outside in the middle of a windy night, personally, I'd like the same coverage on my top quilt as I would from a quilt when it's 20 degrees on a windy night, so I would order the same length you would for a cooler-weather top quilt. You're already saving weight by ordering an ultralight 50-degree top quilt; for my own use, I don't see the point of being so stingy with the length that it becomes less practical or less effective. You can get away with having a very short underquilt, especially in warmer weather, but a top quilt that is even a couple of inches too short can really prove annoying. Yes, you may be folding back the quilt to vent your torso on a 60-degree night, but you'll benefit from every inch of length on a night when you unexpectedly push the rating...

Would someone who usually goes 75" in a 20* bag maybe order a 65" for this specific bag?

    Thanks for the help. Trying to decide which two TQs I want before placing my order!
    The 65" default was a mistake. When we added that length option it became the default. I have changed it back to 75". The 50 GP quilts seem to lose a little length due to no baffles, so unless you only want partial coverage (ie like an elephants foot or 3/4 bivy) I wouldn't go that much shorter than your normal selection.

    I've been primed to order from Loco b/c the rep. The summer series made me jump.

    Started to watch the video and its frozen on the first image once you tap play. My heart fluttered in my throat b/c I thought Spiguyver had a prosthetic leg. Oh man, glad it's not so.

    This is for anyone who's contemplating to buy an Operator Ghost Pepper 50 and wonders how far it will take you down temperaturewise. I reached a new personal record a couple of days ago. Paired with a 20F UQ, a deployed wind shield and long clothes while sleeping, it actually kept me warm in a 37F-night.
