Most people need some insulation beneath them when the temperature drops below 70 (seventy) degrees.
Unless you're a lot cold-hardier than I (which is possible), you'll regret that. We had temps in the 60s last Friday at a Boy Scout campout. I thought a bag would be enough. I ended up grabbing my pad in the middle of the night. Next night was much nicer, as I started with the pad. Either way, the night was more comfortable than any night on the ground for me.

Man that first night was quite the experience though. Was basically out in the wilderness, under an untested homemade tarp, getting woken up by deer snorting and heavy thunderstorms
