This review does not reflect on backpackinglight who have provided an excellent service and is unfortunately the only bad one I've had to give for one their products, i have used the corus 32f/0 quilt by thermarest on several occasions now in the vane hope i was doing something wrong but unfortunately it just doesn't do the job thermarest state its for, the fill isnt enough to take up the space in the baffles and leaves cold spots all over the place, if you hold it to the light there are gaps all over the quilt and the fill that is in there heads for the corners of the baffles, i got really fed up with trying to plump it back into an even layer, i dare say it works for the thicker fill version but really feel let down by thermarest with this product.
The same 'transparency' can be said for many quilts and sleeping bags which use a fine down. Often when held against the light there appears to be nothing in there, but somehow they still perform.
I've used this model in 3 seasons with an insulated mat and have only been really cold during a frosty night, when I add extra layers and a hat of course. I'm not sure what help we can offer in this case apart from try it in slightly warm nights and build your confidence in the product.

I received my order very quickly, thanks folks. About the quilt:
- It is a very light and packs small. The end of the quilt goes over your sleeping mat keeping out the cold.
- The sleeping mat fixings that come with the quilt are glued to your mat rather than strap around it, as the above pics illustrates. I got no strap with mine.
- It is hard to imagine this as a 3 season quilt with comfort rating 5-deg and limit of 0-deg. It was 6-deg last light (Ireland) and the Corus 0C quilt was not suitable for that temp. My sleeping mat is a Thermarest NeoAir Xlite, brilliant by the way and I was wearing a woolly hat plus full Xerotherm baselayer system (leggins, socks & long sleeve top). At 3am I had to get into another sleeping bag, thank god I was testing close to home.
- It is a summer quilt on its own and should be used in conjunction with a sleeping bag in Spring/Autumn.
My experience of using quilts and sleeping bags is to ensure you are not 'cold' before you get in, as they will never 'warm you up' only help retain the heat you generate.
I've used this quilt in slight sub zero situations, however I ensured I was wearing my warmer clothing when I first set up the shelter an hour or so before getting in, so I didn't allow myself to get cold. Plus I wore a warm hat and had a warm meal inside me. All of these aspects effect sleeping in zero C situations no matter what you use.
It is also worth stating that on this product the Recommended Temperatures: Comfort 5C - Limit 0C
