Quilt Liner/Summer Fleece Blanket can soften the feel of your quilt. Extend the temperature range of your existing quilt … or use just the Quilt Liner/fleece blanket during those sultry summer nights.
Using a quilt liner will increase the effectiveness of your quilt between washings. The build-up of oils from your skin can migrate into the down of your quilt preventing it from fully lofting and keeping you warm. Dirt and sand that you bring into your quilt can also work their way through the lightweight shell fabric and damage the down or fill.

I enjoyed a great weekend in the White Mountains, hiking and snowshoeing. Plenty of snow and definitely cold temperatures. We started on Saturday morning at the AMC Highland Center with a temperature of -9. That night we slept in the bunkroom of the Zealand Falls Hut where the interior temperature at bedtime was 2 degrees. I used my Sniveler with quilt liner and ended up sleeping comfortably in my long johns, socks and hat. I am delighted with the performance of your products and appreciate your personal guidance when asked for. When I was packing up the next morning, other hikers in the hut could not believe that I was comfortable with that small of a quilt in those temperatures.
Short Round –
Anybody who has ever tried using a traditional mummy style liner in a hammock knows what a pain it can be to get in & out of. At the time i never knew that there was a fleece liner made for top quilts. JRB solves this by making the liner with NO zipper & giving it the same shape & cut as a top quilt making for super easy exit & entry from the hammock!
In addition it adds warmth pair with your top quilt & as mentioned can be your summer top insulation

One of my favorite pieces of gear. This extends the temperature range of my Hudson River by 5°-7° according to my calculations. The best sleep I have ever had was under this quilt liner and a Sierra Stealth.

This is a really unique little bonus. It’s a nice touch inside your main top quilt to have a soft liner or by itself for those hot nights you still want some sort of cover. It’s not the lightest thing, so not really UL, but not too heavy if you have some comfort-weight budgeted. Planning to try to make it a regular part of mine. It’s nice inside the house for those of us tall enough to not be able to fit under your average blanket too.
I will warn that the “gray” is really pretty “purple”. Not an issue for me, but it was unexpected.
