Personally, I've used a FF down bag for over 20 years, a bit too long for me (there were no women's bags when I purchased in those dark days long ago), and never used a quilt.

I am considering a quilt, either as a supplement to, or replacement of the bag and this is quite interesting.  I do toss and turn at night, so having the freedom to move freely rates highly in my view (it's doable in the bag, but a bit of a pain).

Anyone know of anyone using?  (There are a few - very few - Utube reviews.)

Can't comment on that one specifically, but I very much prefer a quilt to a bag.  Also prefer zipperless, even though it's a little bit less convenient.  The zipper in a down bag failed once and I spent a very cold night out.

I bought an EE quilt last year and I love it.   I use it when the nights are mid 40ís or above.   I like it because itís lighter by a pound than my bag and much easier to move around under get out of.  ( just fling it off as opposed to unzipping.... ) love that !!!!! 

But if temps are in low 40ís or below, I prefer my WM bag.    I will say, the down does move toward the feet over time but thatís easy to address. 

I think I have a 40 degree quilt and after using it for a while, I could have gone for a 30 degree one.   

The weight savings is a big factor for me, so I wouldnít be inclined toward a sheet system.

The quilt is about a pound, maybe less.

I made a fitted sheet for my NeoAir several years ago. I don't like laying on a bare pad as I most often sleep without clothes. I don't like attachment systems for quilts which is why I went with a FF Flicker that has a full zip for colder conditions. I wear a fleece hat when it gets cold enough for that.

Anyway, it is fairly easy to make your own fitted sheet with minimal sewing skills like me. Find a comfortable light-weight fabric and some elastic to sew onto the ends and one to link the two sides to keep it staight.
