Hello all. I've been sleeping in my hammock in my sleeping bag thus far. But frankly, I've gotten tired of wiggling into my sleeping bag every night. It's very time-consuming. I recently ordered a Jarbidge under-quilt, along with a Maccat Deluxe, and I really can't afford to spend $180 on a top quilt. What, if any, are my alternatives?
I've been looking at Fleece sleeping bag liners. Maybe the Sea to Summit thermolite liner? I know that they're rated to around 50˚ on their own, but how about with a Jarbidge UQ? I know these wouldn't work for a winter hammock, but would it be feasible to go down to the mid-to-high 40s in combination with an underquilt?
I've also got a down blanket that I found at Goodwill. It's around 1.5 lbs, but doesn't have very much down/loft. Maybe I could sew this into a TQ?
Has anyone had any luck using any type of blanket?
If I must resort to a topquilt, what are some of the better models out there?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I want to thank you all for enabling my new addiction....You hear that?!!! ENABLERS!!!!!
