Go for it
You've essentially described my main 3-season pad. It consists of 4 sections cut to about 10"x24", though I went with duct tape (the cheap option) to attach them so that they fold acc...

And besides, us short carnivores prefer to sleep in a fresh buffalo skin. We'll leave the down to the omnis and the synthetic to those veggie-heads. *curls up in his down quilt, giggling a...
