Check out his web site for specials - he currently has his poncho liner
on sale for $17.00. You could easily add a foot box to get a summer quilt or maybe a 3 season quilt depending on how warm/cold you sleep.
Heck, you'll pay a lot more than that for a poncho liner with crappy fiberfill.
I checked the weight and it is within 3 oz of even the lightest ones.
