The new Ultra 3 is definitely more puffy than the old Ultra 20, especially noticeable while handling or putting in storage bag. I probably won't try the new Ultra 3 until fall as my Ultra 1 looks plenty warm.
Here are the three fill weights from each hang tag, all for the long size.
Ultra 1= 247 grams
Old model Ultra 20= 297 grams
New Ultra 3= 450 grams
Got my Ultralite 1-Season today. Seems like a well made quilt with good loft for it's rating. I am a little disappointed that it weighs 4 oz more than advertised...23 oz vs. 19 oz.
The tag states 300 gr fill weight.
I've owned a couple quilts from GoLite, they have always performed to their claimed spec! In comparison, the new quilts are much better than the old ones (more down, better fabric) but has translated to a heavier product!

I like hiking as it's like exercise!
Has anyone used the Golite 3 season in the summer? Thinking it could be kind of off the body until early morning when temp drops in the mountains.
Tough getting the insulation right for the mountains in the summer, as one night it might be in the upper 30's or even low 40's and the next night, 25 or slightly lower.
The 1+ season has good loft for a summer quilt, and I imagine the new 3 season quilts are quite warm.
Hope this helps-
I had the new Golite Ultra 1 season out last night in the Central Oregon Desert, 27 deg F, slight breeze, no tarp. UQ was a Incubator 20 with a ZQ UQ cover, wore a Patagonia Regulator 1 jacket and Regulator 1 bottoms. And the moon appeared too large.
