The final thing which pulled me to Wiggy's was the EnLIGHTened Prodigy quilt made with Climashield Apex 8 and rated to +15 F, weights about 2 lb. It is very nice TQ - but feels bit fragile. When hiking and tired I do not want to stress about gear going broken. Wiggy's materials are bombproof - if that is possible when talking about sleeping bag.
I also think that extra weight put to the bombproof sleeping bag can be taken out from other gear. There is no need for extra clothing or similar back up solution when sleeping bag is warm, does not loose it's insulation ability or does not loose it's insulation as has sometimes happened when down bag melts in camp due to fire accident.
Summa summarum - bigger, more dependable and better bag means less and lighter other stuff.
