    Does anyone bother taking a sleeping bag/quilt if the temps overnight are projected to be in the lower 70s?? Maybe just a silk bag liner?

    I've slept in a hammock on the back porch in the summer and don't see any reason I couldn't do it on the trail. Also, at summer camps I just brought a sheet.

    A silk liner sounds like a superb idea to me.

    In both the Grand Canyon (low humidity) and Oklahoma (not so low humidity) I've used either an old Marmot sleeping bag liner or a sheet when temps are steadily 70F or higher at night.

    In the low 70s I found that want more than a silk liner… or even silk liner inside a DWR bivy. A fleece blanket or light quilt have worked for me. When it got into the 80s F at night a silk liner worked.

    A silk mummy liner and a square of mosquito netting are all I carry in the summer. No need for insulation in Texas.

    Unless I'm going to sleep on sandy or rocky soil I also forgo the sleeping pad. An insulating pad also protects you from Hot Ground!!!!

    I made a lightweight quilt from a fleece throw. I've considered trying a silk liner, but I prefer to play it safe and carry a bit more weight (my quilt weighs 12-13 oz). The quilt has proven to be very comfortable in temps in the low to mid 70's.

    When it's above 80 degrees at night I've had great success staying at home and using the air conditioner!!!

    Might be overkill,

    but a poncho liner? Kinda like the Integral designs poncho liner. Double duties as insulation and sleeping!
