    Depending on the thickness ....maybe 45 .... but I am just speculating. I think it would require a test.
    Folks on here have done it with wool.

    I was thinkin' bout the same thing originally but I just don't think a fleece blanket/sleeping bag liner would be able to block the wind very efficiently by themselves and I find the wind is where most of my coldness comes from in the hammock.

    However that's all my speculation, if you end up trying it out, you should post the results.

    I think the Shugman is pretty close.. But everyone is different, so you have to test it yourself. As far as blocking wind, That would be a job for your tarp..

    It is mostly limited by a couple things that can be solved by many means:

    1) Loft = warmth so thicker is better
    2) Seal - if it isn't snug, the air will get in-between and rob heat from your backside
    3) Permeability - clad it with nylon of high thread count to prevent wind penetration (see #2)

    Disclaimer: I've never done it... but it will work given the above considerations.

    p.s. yes it is heavy. But if you use wool felt it would be pretty much bullet proof re: moisture

    Sounds like a challenge!

    I will attempt to spend a night with only a thin fleece blanket and a poncho on the outside.

    I will, however, require some of thine vital assistance in its construction.

    Bearing in mind I don't want to destroy my poncho - though the fleece blanket can be subjected anything.

    Equipment available:

    needle and thread
    cord
    cotton string
    webbing
    fleece blanket about 5'2 x 3'2 about 3mm thick
    poncho 6'8 x 4'
    and piece of car windshield reflectix 3'2 x 1'6
