    There is no way this chart is accurate. I don't own quilts, but I own a 15 degree sleeping bag and a 30 degree sleeping bag. According to this chart, If I layered them I would get a -20 to -30 degree rating. Both of my sleeping bags combined equal 31 ounces of down. Most 0 degree sleeping bags have around 30 ounces of ounces of down. If I am missing something here please correct me, but I don't see how this is adding up.

    it's about inches of loft not ounces of down. Quilts can be layered as to minimize the compression of the bottom layer, whereas a sleeping bag inside of a sleeping bag would compress the inner bag unless the outer bag was way over-sized.

    So, silly question:
    Does the order of the quilts matter?
    I have a 20 Enigma and a 40 degree Revelation quilt
