    Looks like some good deals. I keep thinking about getting a summer bag or quilt. But $110 is not in the budget right now. I would get the earier verson of the frog sacks, but at 1 lbs 10 oz they are only a few oz lighter than my normal bag.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Hey hammock engineer, what ARE you doing for a summer bag/quilt? I haven't figured that out and I'm tapped out financially right now. I was thinking about using my silk sleeping bag liner, sending my WM bag home, but keeping my Nest with me the whole time to use as UQ or TQ. Maybe keep my mid-weight thermals to sleep in? I don't know yet. Kind of thought I'd figure it out once I got there you know?
    This is my signature.

    I have no idea. I am also getting tight on money as the start date approaches. I may push my start date back to April 1ish instead of mid March, but I don't think that will gain my that much.

    There is a thread about this on WB. My sleeping bag weighs in at 34 oz. Most of the summer bags that I will find for cheap are in the high 20's. I really don't want to spend $100+ to save 4 or 5 oz right now.

    I think I am going to take this one as it comes. If a killer deal comes along on a 1 lbs bag I will get it (I'll pass it along to you too). I am going to keep my regular bag until I don't even want to have any part on me and see what options I can find. If the night is over 70 I think I can sleep without any top quilt and just the under quilt.

    In the end I really don't know.

    You can pick up a fleece sleeping bag for about $10. They do fine for me in most summer conditions, probably down to 50 degrees, maybe lower if you are a warm sleeper. I bought my fleece bag at Big Lots and it has gotten plenty of use..

    Those look like they might work. Based on the ones that you guys have, do you think I could trim down the rectangular bag? The rectangular bags, or even the mummy ones, are bigger than what I need in a hammock. I am thinking that I can trim it down to what I need and get it down closer to 16 oz.

    Looking at the rect bag it is 58"x79" opened up. I should be able to trim it to 48"x79" and lose the zipper for velcro. That should buy me 5 or 6 oz.
