This quilt comes with thin straps that go around your sleeping pad. The quilt has small plastic slots sewn to the edges that slide on the upper sleeping pad strap allowing the edges of the quilt to be tucked in tight when its cold or spread out when its warm. When I tried this set up at home the first time I rolled over one of the plastic slots tore out of the seam. The plastic pieces need to be stitched better if used as intended. Instead, I cut off the plastic slots and sewed a strip of 0.8 oz. nylon, 6 to 10 inches wide, down both edges. The nylon strips are tucked under me when its cold and spread out when its warm. This eliminates cold drafts when turning at night and makes the quilt warmer. I find no need to attach the quilt to my sleeping pad. The nylon strips add a total of one ounce to the quilt after removing the plastic pieces and the sleeping pad straps.
