    Jeff,

    For those who take a sit pad, etc, this is a great weight saver! Great job.

    I've found that I really like having it for winter camping just for a warm place to sit. Then when I use it under my legs I don't have any condensation issues, so why bother with an underquilt there? Works for me, at least. Plus gives me backup for going to ground, as if THAT would ever happen...

    jeff, I was talking about summer, and Im a warm sleeper. I really want to see if i can get away with no foot insulation in summer. I hope so. even so, sit pads arnt that bad.

    a pad under your legs does not suffer from the problems associated with normal ccf usage, you can't really feel any discomfort from it, and it is not so bulky and you don't need it to be nearly as thick or wide, and condensation shouldn't be much of a problem either. alot different from actually laying directly on one

    point taken. and some vendors offer ccf by the linear yard. so 3x5 would be more then enough pad at next to nothing. and save weight and bulk of the quilt. 6 oz os really all you need for a great setup.

    Quilts are much less bulky than CCF. But it'll save the weight, though.

    point taken, my old sleeping bags (several years, so no high tech stuff) bags were synthetic, and bulky as bulky can get. but i have never used down, so i wasnt sure.
