    Thx! Where can I find these without going online? I need it sooner than it may take to receive it via snail mail... An army surplus store maybe?

    Precisely. That's where I got both of mine. Just make sure it doesn't say "Made in China" on the label; the issue ones have a much softer hand (important for comfort in a top quilt) and seem to be a wee bit warmer. Expect to pay $20 to $30 for a new one, depending on the store, your local prices, and local sales tax.

    Hope it helps!

    Above 60 with a bugnet, a sheet works fine for me especially if any insulation underneath is being used.

    Suggestions?

    Thx!

    A military poncho liner weighs about 1 pound and will work. You can get them on EBay for about $20 with shipping.

    SOL Escape sleeping bag: 8.5 oz good to 50 degrees. If too warm you can turn it inside-out.
