Otherwise, you're adding another layer, however "crushed" it might be, between you and the efficient insulating properties of the UQ.
Keep in mind that its your body heat that makes these things work. An enclosed sleeping bag is designed to trap that heat, the same heat that is supposed to be making the UQ cozy for you.
keep in mind that you don't use the sleeping bag as a sleeping bag. You use it as a quilt unzipped and it covers you like a quilt.
This is a good way to use what you have until you can buy a TQ
