    For warmer temps (50* and above) suspend it under your hammock like any other under quilt. Works for me.
    I'm so out of shape ......I passed gas yesterday and pulled a muscle!

    I have tried sleeping on a fleece blanket, I can't say I really liked it all to much, it kind of got bunched up on me in the night.
    Some of my freight hopping adventures on film over at my YouTube Channel... Oh and there is other stuff there as well!

    I am looking for some general info. Need ideas for a place to get a mid-sized tarp. Can't get a standard Macat till August I hear and don't sew.

    I am also wondering if a fleece blanket might work as well....maybe even polyester?

    Man, I love those fleece blankets for 60 deg. or better with just my pad (walmart)
    When it gets colder I will try it slipped inside over my pad in my 1.1 dbl.

    ===> I work part time for LL Bean, and just picked-up one of their fleece sleeping bags ($25) - basically a fleece blanket sewn into a bag shape with a zipper. I will try to use it with a 3/8" CCF pad, and maybe a bag liner. Since it opens-up (and two of them could easily be zipped together) using it as an UQ might just work also! Dunno until I get to try all this stuff out!

    Whether I use it inside the hammock, or under it, or as a bag or top quilt, it will be accompanying me whenever I head out. Just seems to be pretty versatile, light, and has it's own set of elastic compression straps sewn on, with a carrying handle, as well. The temps drop pretty quickly in the New England/ NY mountains, and having this fleece multi-option bag I think just might be a permanent part of my gear!
