    Underquilt Requirement

    I will be camping this summer and the only underquilt I have is a 20 degree. The temps at night just get down to 65 at least. So should I use it and if not what should I use instead?

    You can still use it just fine. No reason to go buy new stuff. If you feel you absolutely must not use the 20d then a Costco blanket works pretty well in light summer temps.

    No reason why you could not use it. you can vent the ends if needed it it is too hot. If sleeping fairly clothed then you may be able to go without any UQ or sleep on top of a blanket in the hammock. just some ideas...

    Use what you have. If your under quilt has shock cord in the ends then loosen those. Vent it. Or you can pull it off to one side until you need it. With a 20 under quilt you wont need much for a top quilt.
    I like refried beans. That's why I wanna try fried beans, because maybe they're just as good and we're just wasting time. You don't have to fry them again after all.

    I've used my Wooki before. Move it to one side and sleep, cover back up when I wake from CBS.
