High Sierra Sniveller Backpacking Quilt

As a side sleeper and someone who's never slept well in a mummy bag, I'm sold on using a quilt for camping and backpacking. I need conduct some more testing in cold weather before writing my full review, but here are some pics, opinions and info for now:

Looks like a nice one. I never have gone with a quilt although I know they've become quite popular. I toss and turn a lot and fear that the quilt would come off me, and I'd get cold and lose sleep. Beside that, my mummy bag weighs 1.25 lbs. That's reasonably light.

1.25 is great for a mummy bag! What's the temp rating? Western Mountaineering?
