I’m kind of in the same boat. I’ve just never been able to cut the drafts or feel like I can let my body go lose without an elbow or something falling out into the cold.I started using a quilt for early season 3 yrs ago. Honestly not super happy but I would not go back to a bag. Reasons for that is shaving ounces and less bulk in pack.
I use a lite weight bud bivy. I think it helps with drafts and keeping things together.I’m kind of in the same boat. I’ve just never been able to cut the drafts or feel like I can let my body go lose without an elbow or something falling out into the cold.
I’m actually starting to dabble in hammocks since they keep your arms all together and the under quilt kind of wraps around your body. Just haven’t had a night cold enough to really test it.
Thanks for the help.i am willing to spend more for a good quilt and pad that keeps me warm.Yes, but there's a learning curve. Some love em, some hate em. What's your budget? Lots of good vendors out there now....Katabatic Gear, El Coyote, UGQ, etc. Also, pay as much attention to your pad as you do your quilt. That's what will be insulating you from the bottom.
