My Locale Oregon and Washington
About Me I started hiking about 45 years ago. My first backpack was 40 years ago. I currently try to do one backpack trip of 5 nights every month (which can be tricky in the winter) 20 to 50 miles. Mostly I stay around Mount Hood, Columbia Gorge, Mount Adams, Goat Rocks, and the Olympic Peninsula. In recent years I have shifted to lightweight - my pack weight without food and water is about 15 lb (7 kg). I make a lot of my own gear - silnylon tarp-tent, bivy, synthetic bag, simple bag style pack. My sleeping pad is a Therm-a-Rest air mattress.

Re: Smaller sleeping bag with 100% overfill: I am confused"
You don't really care about theoretical over-stuffed, you want to know whether to over-stuff a sleeping bag. So it makes sense to construct two test samples that are the same as actual sleep...

Okay, now I'm searching even harder for a Romney/Obama analogy. And now I know I'm supposed to be against it : ) Like Obama intentionally muffed the debate so he could put Romney out. ...
