    i believe that even ultra lighters consider the quilt (or sleeping bag) to often be the biggest single dollar investment in a persons gear list.
    especially in colder times.
    it's an important piece of gear & a place where you can get more function w/ less bulk & weight if you do it right.
    don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!

    The sleeping bag/quilt is where one can save the most weight in many cases.

    like the old saying goes.."" travel light..freeze at night!!"".. my time in the woods has taught me this truth....tote a backpack that fits and carries JUST what you need comfortably..plus..go with the best bag you can afford....if these two things fail at any point ..its not fun anymore

    My 20 deg sleeping bag weighs 34oz and my quilt is going to weigh in at around 20 oz. For the same warmth I am going to save 14oz.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    I have a 35F bag that weighs 14.8oz. I have been down to 20F, with light weight thermals on and I was still warm. But, I am a really warm sleeper. I don't like to sleep with the blanket on in bed unless it gets below 60F.

    And I thought I was a cold sleeper. I got nothing on you.
