    Do a search of the forums using google (the search engine here is terrible). You'll find this thread and many others:

    I made one and it works OK. I put some shock cord in one end and sewed the edges shut about 15 inches up. Looking back I should have made it shorter, it covers well over my head

    I made this one for my wife with a sewn foot box. It's only good to about 60-65* for her, she's a very cold sleeper.

    I use mine for a bag liner with no mods. I fold it long way and tie the two corners and the middle together with the little strings built in.

    I Get about 10 degrees improvement inside my bag. I'm sure it would work to 60 deg F by itself.

    Shotgunred, I made a TQ of a similar loft as a poncho liner. By itself it's only good down to around 60* also. I followed up with an outer windbreaker of polyester to fit over the TQ. This gained another 10 to 15* with very little increase in weight or bulk. To get down even lower I made a fleece inner liner. With polypro long UW took this down to the mid 20's last January at the 2 Annual Florida Hang. The fleece does add quite a bit more weight and bulk but it should keep Ms. shotgunred warm.

    That's a great idea olddog, the fleece is comfy I'm sure. Mrs. Shotgun has an HG 20* she uses for anything below 60*
