    Actually, my preferred top insulation in summer is either a fleece blanket or a poncho liner (woobie). I know that I'm more likely to sweat during the summer...and just haven't felt comfortable with spending that much on a down TQ that's likely to suck up a lot of sweat. I can wash my woobie after every trip and not worry about whether or not I'm going to destroy it. And it's < $30 if I do. I'll take the weight penalty to save my piece of mind.

    I also use my poncho liner when it is hot, and the WL SS TQ is a bit too much. SC is hot, hot, hot in the summer. It was 82* at 0630 hrs this morning. No UQ or TQ needed. Phew, did I say it's hot here???

    I use a HG 40 Burrow with 2oz of overfill & snap footbox. In its stuff sack it weighs 15.07oz (427.2g). I bought it last year right after HG began offering the Argon material. You could only get the Argon on the inner shell then so it has whatever material they were using before the Argon as the outer shell material.

    I use one of these: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Single-MUMMY...item45f88a813a

    I got the mummy bag shape, but they also sell rectangular shaped ones. After using it last summer and struggling a little to get in and out of it, I had a friend who's a thread injecting extraordinaire to turn it into a "top quilt" for me...now I love it!

    I use an old Big Agnes Lost Dog 50 degree bag that I cut the back out of and left enough for a foot box. Works fantastic!
