    I made a quilt with 2 layers of 2.5 Climashield XP, and got down to around 28 - 30F I think (if I remember correctly). You'd have to be wearing some very warm clothing to get down to 20F, imho.

    Wow, you've got quite the production line going on there, when do you start taking orders
    I like how you did the footbox end so it can be opened back up (not permanent). Great idea, I think I will add clips to mine.

    Thanks a bunch for the nice comments

    I am gonna be rather doubtful that I'd get down to 20deg and be warm in these quilts. I tend to get cold easily.
    I guess once the GA weather cooperates again, I'll be out in the yard giving it a try. I'll use gear and clothing that I'd normally bring on the trail to get as real of an experience as I can. There's really nothing to cut the wind in our yard, so it should be a good test, pushing a bit beyond....

    I'll update when I get to try them out.

    Thumbs up

    I recently made 4 Climashield XP (5oz) quilts for our family. These will be kept handy for emergencies and, since the family is beginning to warm up to the hammock idea, we now need lots of quilts!
    Perkolady, you are an inspiration! I'm trying to outfit myself and 3 of my boys for backpacking and hammocking.

    This weekend, I will be altering sleeping bags we already own (which are too big for my washer, a big negative) into quilts similar to yours. If they are still too heavy, then we'll use them as twin comforters and I'll make quilts just like yours, except I have blaze orange and olive drab ripstop in my stash.

    Thanks for sharing!
