Michele, you might consider something like a zippered SPE
like I had at Hot Springs. It would make it much easier to get into your bag, would keep it zipped up but still let you roll around, and you can use the bag you have now if it has a separating zipper.
Really needs the spandex instead of the shockcord like mine has, though...the shockcord allows the DWR to come off the pad in places and cold air gets under there. Didn't have any stretchy material at the time, though.
Or just get a thicker underquilt and lose the pad
