    Modular quilt system?

    hey guys.... for those who dont have a great attention span heres the skinny:
    the goal is trying to modify the usgi MSS into a versatile multi layered comprehenseive (all)4 season TQ.

    i know its kinda heavy...but its alot of gear in one tight package (and thats also why were gonna mod it). please open mind you will keep? also i am assuming you WONT use the bivy with this. each bag can be used alone as well as having hookups to create a SUPER BAG
    its like the thundercats....individually they are sweet....but when combined they are "THUNDERCATS HOOOOOOO"
    slightly related proof:

    just a question. well more of a thought that i wanted to see if it was viable. i didnt see it in the forums....but honestly i didnt look THAT hard.

    anyway. im going to post a link:...nvmd i was but all of them are retarded... heres a general excerpt:
