Ok. I tried this in the general forum and got zero replies. So, I figure I'll try one last time in this one and see if I can't get some perspective. If not, I'll just let it die.
I hike as part of a family of 5 (two adults and three young children). Our winter system consists of a flannel sleeping bag and an extra blanket (for more details check out my thread in the general forum). As I look at our winter sleep system, I'm thinking of swapping out the extra blanket for a MYOG quilt, even thinking of ditching the flannel sleeping bags and opting just for the quilt in order to cut weight and increase warmth. I've looked at Ray Jardine's site and Thru-hiker and googled other ideas. But before I spend the money on the materials, I'd like to know if any WBers have experimented with quilts and what their feeling was about them.
