    ... I have used a down filled quilt in weather from 60 F to -15 F. It works well. The down needs to be kept dry, but my hammock stays a lot drier than I ever

      I have used a down filled quilt in weather from 60 F to -15 F. It works
      well. The down needs to be kept dry, but my hammock stays a lot drier
      than I ever did in a tent in the rain.
