    Alternatively, I did this with my modified Poncho:

    Works surprisingly well, but is definitly not extremly lightweight.
    If I wouldnt use and therefore carry along a Poncho Liner, I would have bought a cheap synthetic-filled rectangular sleeping bag and cut off the zips and superfluous material.

    How thick is your liner? The one I have is very thin...It worked well...but for any thing under 40*...I will have to have another liner tied in.
