On the bike, I'd worry about volume more'n weight. Even on gnarly singletrack with big climbs, the weight distribution is going to be more important than an ounce or two either way. So...down quilt. It's more flexible on how you pack it, and it'll require less volume than an equivalent pad.
On the other hand, it'll also be more moisture-sensitive. If you're going somewhere where there's going to be a lot
of humidity (the Smokies come to mind), it might be worth bringing along an underquilt protector or figuring out how to attach the pad to the bike.
Hope it helps!
