Warm Summer Nights Sleeping Bag and Quilt Roundup

Which model of sleeping bag or quilt/blanket do you use for warm nights? Since "warm" is a somewhat subjective term, let's consider a warm night to be 50° Fahrenheit (10° Celsius) or warmer (for the sake of this thread).

Feel free to list more than one option and indicate the temperature range (50° F. or above) for which each is used.

Thank you for your participation.
