Reading the Cumulus thread regarding connecting quilts to mats. I don't feel the need to connect quilt to mat at all. Seems to me it creates more issues than it solves (how to, setup faff each camp, restriction in use) and negates many advantages of a quilt. I.e freedom of movement, sitting up with quilt around me, easy venting, easily wearing quilt before/after sleeping and if needing to nip out in the night. I don't fix my quilt to the bed at home. I don't fix my sleeping bag down either. If it's done to stop draughts, then IMO your quilt is too narrow or you need batwings like on the Rayway quilt. Convince me otherwise? I describe how I use mine on another 'rant' here: http://forums.outdoorsmagic.com/showthread.php/62239-Quilt-fixing-by-an-experienced-user As for having the edges of the quilt under the mat!
