I decided to change my sleeping system to become more 4-season, and started with a new quilt. I got the EE Revelation, 20 degree, regular length,wide width. The thing weighs just under 20 oz, and packs to half-or less- the size of my Mountain Hardwear syn bag. 800 fill, with Downtek treatment to repel water. Comes with a storage bag and a stuff sack, but the stuff sack doesn't compress as much as it could. Not sure if this is on purpose, but since it is so small compared to what I used to have I am good with it. This quilt comes with a drawstring at the top and bottom, and a zippered footbox. It also comes with 2 elastic oval bands to slide around your pad with clips to secure the quilt. The quilt arrived on time and looked perfect when I got it. EE answered all my questions during the buying process quickly, and helped me decide what was best. Used it this weekend, temps in the upper 20s. I regularly use a liner, and wore long johns because I always have to get up for the call of nature. Loved it. I was worried that it would slip off because I roll around at night but that didn't happen, even though I only clipped one side. Next step is upgrading my pad, now that its the only thing between me and the ground! Anyone thinking about going with a quilt, I highly recommend EE Quilts.

I agree 100 percent. I've been using the EE Rev20 (I got it overstuffed by 2%, so Tim said it's more like a 15 now). I love it! I've never liked being constricted inside a bag and like to throw a leg out now and again if I feel like it. I use it with the Thermorest Xlite and strap it down...I sleep like a baby. I slept on Cold Mountain (VA) last March and temps got down to 15, and I was toasty warm in long underwear and a hat. I agree it could compress more but you don't want to ruin the stitching.
