    underquilt width for summer quilt

    you can get a summer rated 3/4 length uq for around 12 oz or less. they're very packable. I even bring mine along when I'm winter camping to add some extra insulation too.

    Cold Front

    I slept outside last night in South Louisiana. it got down to 29 degrees and the wind was blowing steady until the wee hours of the morning. I can't believe it froze in South Louisiana before winter!

    Summer Hanging?

    yes you will need something under you to keep you warm even if the lows are in mid 70s. if you want to buy an underquilt, I'd recommend the hammock gear Phoenix 40 degree econ.

    Is it time to upgrade to a fancier hammock?

    get a netless 11 footer from dutchwaregear.com
    they're under $50 and will give you an idea of how comfortable an 11 foot 58 inch wide hammock can be.

    or do it big and get something fancy :)
