Well, I meant that because it is half the size of a standard UQ, I get the same level of warmth (where it matters) for half the weight and bulk. It does do a better job of insulating me than my KAQ builds did. The way it 'cups' around me really provides a nice seal. So yeah, I think it's warmer than most UQs and it is most certainly lighter than a full size quilt using the same amount of insulation. Did I mention that I can remove layers of insulation as necessary, then put them back in? Yeah, it's cool like that.
