    single quilt?

    Just a thought but has anyone thought of making one large quilt that could jut wrap around the hammock and tuck in as opposed to seperate under anf top quilts?

    Yes, sleeping bag mods have been done by quite a few folks here.

    The problem is that unless the bag is oversized, it doesn't leave much room in the hammock to move around or lay in a diagonal position. It does work though.
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    I did it with my Western Mountaineering Alpinelite 20 bag. I added a small TQ and UQ as it was real cols weather.
    Totally doable.

    Whats this get down to comfortably? I rarely go below 20F, just looking to cut weight wherever I can.
