I am wondering if anyone may have actual experience or an opinion on the following thought.

Is it possible to moderate the effect of an underquilt? I know that making sure it is tight against the hammock when you approach a UQ's rating, is important. With that fact, would it be logical to think that you could have the opposite affect by hanging the UQ looser (is that a word???). In other words if you have a 40* quilt but want to use it in warmer temperatures (within reason) does it make sense that you can moderate the insulating affect by not having it tight against the hammock?

If there is anyone that has actually done this or wants to chime in with an opinion - it would be greatly appreciated.
