    Also, if you have the universal version there are pull tabs along each edge that can be guyed out with a short length of shock cord to create some vents.
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    Because not every night has the same temperatures.

    Case in point - a couple of weekends ago in Vermont we had some warm weather it was in the 70s during the day and wasn't getting much below 55 at night. Bring my JRB ORM seemed like a big waste of space and weight. Then, on the final day, colder temps arrived and it was 35 at night with high winds and I was very very happy I had brought it.

    I've had even bigger extremes of temperature when camping. Daytimes in the mid 70's, nights 55-65... Then frost (below freezing) the last morning when I got up...

    I had it like that - daytime in high 70's and had it snow on the last day.

    Thus its probably prudent to carry something that has the capability to keep you warm beyond the immediate temperature range... Unless you live/hang someplace consistently warm...

    yes, you definately need a bit more insulation in case temps are lower than expected, i was talking more about greater seasonal temps. like i don't really want to carry a winter uq in the summer and just vent it. i'd rather carry a thinner quilt altogether. this is why lots of people have more than one quilt. i was just replying to slowhike's comment about not being able to find a single quilt that will be best for all seasons. but, if you can add/remove insulation, one quilt can essentially be three quilts, and you don't have to actually buy three different quilts. not that owning more than one quilt is a bad thing though, i was just bringing up the idea of a quilt that had removeable insulation and the possible benefits it might have, such as versatility, cost (one rather than three), and not having to carrry around unnecessary weight. the same concept can be applied to over quilts as well, as many people have more than one with several thicknesses for different temps/seasons.
