I've made 2 IX quilts. Both 3 layers and both full lenght. Actually, that full lenght is custom sized to the user on both of my quilts. One was for me at 5foot and the other for my 6'4" husband. What we found this past winter was that, as usual, I sleep colder than he does. I had to have more, way more insulation added than just using the IX quilt. He did much better, but still needed an extra poncho liner added under the hammock. I'm waiting for our upcoming trips, with warmer temps to test to see if I can go with just the IX under quilt. I already think my husband will be fine with just this quilt. I made his longer and wider because that's what he wanted. And then I added shockcord and all he has to do is hook the ends over the end of his blackbird. Anyway that I can make set-up easy for him is always a plus. Anyways, the testing is still ongoing. Oh, we have found that the waterproofness (is that a word??) is great here in the humid south. I just camped through a weekend where the rain was falling sideways and we were in a flood warning zone. Hammock and outer quilts were dry as a bone. And what rain did splash back onto my IX quilt, didn't stay. This was a huge + for the IX. My IX quilts are covered with $1 ripstop fabric from wallmart.
