    Keeping in mind that I've only done 3 or 4 overnight hangs and they've all been on my turtledog stand in the backyard: I LOVE my fleece Superman Snuggie as a summer top quilt. The last 2 times I've slept out I've also thrown a poncho liner on top because it was down in the 50's at night though.

    I like to use my quilted poncho liner. It's thin enough that I'm not sweating a bunch in the evening, but It's warm enough that I can sleep through temperature drops into the 60's without a problem.

    I should clarify that I had an UQ as well as my poncho liner.

    I'm with the poncho liner crowd. Good down to 45/50* for me so far. I ran some string through the foot side and cinched it into a kind of vented foootbox (also identifies the foot side so I'm not smelling toe jam).

    If I'm in Florida, I use a cotton percale twin size sheet, doubled. Anywhere else, I keep my Burrow handy. I sleep cold.

    I bought 2.5 yards of "whisper fleece" at the fabric store for $12.00. A perfect compliment to my Z-Liner underquilt and perfect for a 55 degree night in northern AZ. This will be my summer TQ with my 20 degree UGQ Flight Jacket for shoulder and winter seasons. Possibly both for a very cold (for my neck of the woods) night. The UQ is my main warmth in the summer. Good thing my Clark has the weather shield for wind reduction.
    The love of wilderness is more than a hunger for what is always beyond reach; it is also an expression of loyalty to the earth, the earth which bore us and sustains us, the only paradise we shall ever know, the only paradise we ever need, if only we had eyes to see.

    The DD Jungle hammock also has a great waterproof base layer that cuts wind. It's a great piece of kit. Removable too for those warmer nights.

    Cali,

    I have lived in SC my whole life and never heard of Modoc until I read this post.

    You are right that SC is super hot in the summer. Let me know if you are ever in the Columbia area.

    I use a DIY CS Apex 2.5 top quilt with a matching 3/4 length underquilt. This is good down to the mid 40s. If it is going to be above 65 deg, the UQ is off to the side but ready if needed. When it is going to be for-sure above 60 at night and it is sticky, I use a poncho liner TQ made from a new, unused liner. Like mentioned above, it can go straight to the washing machine when I get home.

    FYI - using a 3 layer Insultex UQ, I have taken a several hour nap in my hammock using the PLTQ when it was ~45* and breezy. The new, unused poncho liner has about twice the loft of the used ones.
