    Nice ... Good to know that Marco will do custom work to that level.

    Mountain Hardwear do a Lamina 35 and Ultralamina 32. The Ultralamina range uses lighter fabrics and a slimmer cut than the lamina range. A quick google suggests the Ultralamina 32 is not available in the UK. I have the Lamina 35 and am happy with it. A few other synthetic bags with a 0 degree rating and good warmth:weight ratios to consider could be:
    Mammut Alpine UL
    Marmot Cloudbreak 30
    Rab Ignition 2
    Montane Prism
    Although the Montane Prism doesn't look as good on paper (especially given the price) that's because it uses the new standard of testing (as does the Rab Ignition 2) which generally rates bags as colder than the old standard of testing.
    Don't know about collars on any of these, you might find that's sacrificed on lightweight synthetic bags with these temperature ratings.

    I've ordered a pair of Marco's down socks and have been wondering about their quilts- given I sleep on either a Synmat or a DownMat, I think a quilt would work well...

    Is it 4 season you want or just 2-3?

    2-3 season would do- augment it with a down jacket for the colder nights I am not in my Lavuu and Frontier Stove.. (Sorry, are those swear words?!)

    The down socks are great, I also got a custom quilt from Marco and it's superb.
