    Thanks to @Shewie @tom and @Bob-W for PHD comments.
    Unfortunately, Leeds is a long way from me but thanks for the offer, @Shewie .
    Good luck to @Arne L. on finding a bag/quilt for your GF.

    Was just looking at this thread again and had another forum Freudian moment... I thought you wrote "Sue's Quality Sleeping Around Thread"...!

    Have you looked at Thermarest (yes they do make excellent sleeping bags as well) Questar HD small. 920g total weight, has 470 g of 650 Fill Nikwax Hydrophobic Down. I paid £184 last October.

    A young female friend has just ordered a Cumulus liteline 400 (short). For bikepacking trips down to light frosty (near/above zero) conditions.

    I'll try and get pics and impressions when I get to see it.

    Have a look at Western Mountaineering Quilts. Used my Nanolite last week on the Cumbrian Way and was pretty warm every night with thin sleeping clothes.The Astralite should be a good option?!

    Did you get the Panyam 450 @Arne L. ?
    Interested to hear it's lower limit of comfort for whomever used it.
    Any use feedback would be appreciated.

    I went for the Vaude Alpstein 450. Another quilt, but with a superb attachment-system so it mimicks a bag when necessary.

    Took it to the Pyrenees myself late September; great bag.

    Cumulus Liteline 400 with 50 overfill would be interesting too. Has it worked for them can I ask @Mole ? Especially interested around zero or below please. The only difference I can tell from the pics and specs is the down collar goes all the way around on the Panyam but only on top on the Liteline? Should still work okay? The Liteline works out lighter than the Panyam with the modifications I think would work.
