    HOT weather top quilts

    Here in South Carolina, now that we're staring down the loaded barrel of February we're getting geared up for summer...which starts in March.

    Summers here get up into the hundreds, which I'm sure is par for the course for lots of different parts of the world. That said, most of my hangs have taken place in late fall and winter and thus, I'm ill prepared for what awaits me in the hot, steamy months ahead.

    What do you use (if anything) as a cover in the summertime? I'm one of those people that can't just sleep under NOTHING...I have to have some kind of sheet, at least.

    Guide me, learned ones.

    For the true summer temps - a simple sleeping bag liner. They're relatively inexpensive, pack small and light, and have just about the right amount of material to have ~something~ on you.

    They're often available in both silk or fleece. And you can find them on sale if you follow the gear prices from the larger distributors.
    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

    If you have to have something, I'd go with the liner like Mr. Sparrow suggested. I myself camped last year in Sept. in the 90's and the only thing between me and my buginator was a t-shirt and boxers. I hate to be covered if I don't need it.
    It'll be alright Friday!

    I've got a silk mummy bag liner that I was intending to use just as you've described, but not having done so yet I wasn't sure if just that alone would be sufficient, overkill, or otherwise...not to mention other possibilities.

    I bet it's nice and fluffy! Making a down UQ for winter use was enough of a hassle for me, though! lol

    I used a pillow, and it still looked like a goose exploded in my workshop.
