the Pac NW. I'm hoping to use a light down underquilt and leave the
foam pad at home. It should pack up smaller although it will be
about 5 oz heavier. Just being able to sleep without fighting the
slipping pad makes a cushy night's sleep even nicer! We HH have it
sooooooo nice compared to ground sleepers :-)
Also, the light quilt is a good way to test overall dimensions and
stuff so that when I make next year's winter down quilt, I won't have
to worry about hypothermia. Of course, it will take all summer to
sew the cold weather quilt.
