    smallest package for insulaton?

    So I have a ity bity thermarest neoair. And I want to convert to underquilt, but I want something that packs down as small or close to as small. I have an osprey stratos 36, so space is LIMITED. I'm more of a summer hiker and will be spending about three weeks in northern Maine this summer. Any ideas on a really small underquilt for summer weather?

    If the temps aren't gonna get below 50 the Hammock Gear 50* burrow packs down ridiculously small. Especially if you get the short version.

    LeighLo 2/3 UQ is what I use in summer. I could fit it into my cook pot if I wanted.

    I have the summerweight one. Not sure if it is offered anymore, but I use it down to freezing (in concert with other solutions).

    I use a te WA breeze good down to the 40s and weighs 10 ounces...and packs down small enough I could fit it in my cook pot.

    Also, I will be in the downeast Maine region over the summer, if you need a place to recoup or whatever, let me know!

    +1. Warbonnet stuff is great quality and this piece of gear fits all gathered-end hammocks well. I'm not aware of many other lighter UQs and this one packs up very small.

    I had Adam at HG do a Summer quilt for me that took me into the 30* range on the AT.

    It weighed about 7 oz, and packed about the size of a softball. Love it

    Lazy River Road also has one, same results
