- Don't wrap the quilt under the pad, especially such a big pad as in the review. Buy some 1/16th in shock cord and mini line locks (I bought from Zpacks) and string up the 6 tabs on the back. This works great to keep the drafts away. I also lost some weight on the quilt and did some sewing:
- I protect this wearable down quilt just as much/little as I do a down jacket while in camp. It stays relatively close to body and I haven't damaged it yet during camp chores. Of course going SUL is going to mean having items that are multi-use, just part of the game.
- You ~can~ drop a trail jacket from your gear list that is an insulating piece to your kit with this wearable quilt. Just buy the JRB down sleeves to supplement around camp on especially cold 3 season nights. They weigh ~5 oz and also are multi-use in that I don't need to carry heavy duty socks for sleeping at night, I just take the sleeves off my arms and wear them as massive leg warmers, work great and saves weight in my pack.
