Hi guys,
I recently considered using quilt instead of sleeping bag to shave 0.5kg off. (~17 oz, ~ 1.1 lb)
I read about how quilt's are being used (no material in the back),
and Im using Klymit Inertia O-Zone




and I want to ask you, Will it work with traditional quilt? Does to holes in the matress would make "dead" spots aloowing cold inside?

With traditional sleeping bag the fabrics are being squshed to thoes holes and you can't feel cold spots.

Thank you so much smile

p.s
Its my first topic here

Having froze my butt off with a Trekker pad with no holes (long sold!) I would say you'd have some issues with the ground radiating some cold. As those pads are just air and low R value, it may be no worse than a conventional inflatable pad that has no insulating properties added in. That said, I'd re-think the quilt for colder weather, or at least add in a closed cell foam pad underneath the Klymit. At the very least, a piece of Emergency blanket cut to fit the pad might help some. We use one in the tent in the winter and it makes a difference. I'd do some experimenting before taking it out on the trail and having a bad night(s).

I once asked this very question to a klymit rep. He admitted their pads are not for quilts. As mentioned above if you layer it with foam pads they may work.
