I am looking for a 3 season down bag. 15 to 25 degree rating and some good fill power. It needs to be rectangular, I'll be using it with my fiancee as a "quilt." We want to sew zippers and nylon on it for a floor.We are trying to go lighter overall. Do you all have any suggestions as to manufacturers/models?

Check out the Western Mountaineering Alder. Semi-rectangular, zipper around the foot so you can open it flat, hoodless. Rated at 25 degrees. Steve

I second that motion. I have the hooded version, formerly known as The Hooded Aspen before the recent name changes. My wife and I use it as a quilt when we camp; love it!

If value is your thing then a look at L.L.Bean's down bags could be worthwhile. Though if you do have the money, I would again second the Alder bag

I picked up a 20 degree down bag at REI. It has no hood and makes a comfy blanket.
