    I have a te-wa 3-season and love it. It helped me down to 13 degrees, packs around the size of a nalgene bottle and is very well made.

    I use the Golite 1+ season ultralite 40* down top quilt, It is an awesome bag and I have used it to 28* with good results. If you can get one on there 40% of sale it's a great bargain.

    I am looking at a diy IX underquilt. I don't really care if it is lightweight I just want it to be extremely compact. I want to have an Adventure Racing type backpack and everything needs to fit inside. Gunner thanks for the Matrix I just wish they had pack sizes listed.

    Does Leigh have a website and if so does anyone have a link.

    IX is warm, but not very compressible.

    I have and IX underquilt and although it's very easy to make, very easy to attach to my hammock, very easy to keep dry, fairly lightweight.... it is not compackable!!! So if that's highly important to you, I wouldn't recomend the IX.

    I've tried climashield and down quilts, the most compactable are the down ones. They are also the most expensive ones. If compactability is your highest requirement, you'd probably be happier and better off to get down. (this, of course, is just my opinion and worth just about 2 cents)
