If you're really going lightweight, you may want to try out a down quilt in which case you'll need a full mattress.

Maybe, but I wonder if the inertia might be warmer that it would seem. Reason? I think the sleeping bag may loft into the big holes. Just speculating.

That's the idea anyway.

How young and light are you? What climate will you experience? With cut-outs you will almost certainly need a full bag.

You can save more weight with the Klymite Static V pad (about a pound) combined with a quilt that attaches to the pad with straps, probably even with a winter-weight down quilt such as my Enlightened Revelation (almost 2 pounds). The Static V packs down to the size of a nalgene bottle, and I find it pretty comfortable. OTOH, I use a Exped 9 down pad for winter camping. In fact, I look more and more longingly at it for year round use the older I get. ;-)

My NeoAir X-therm is as light as I could expect a quality sleeping pad to ever be. Keeps me warm, and packs incredibly small (about the size of a tall-boy beer can). Only issue is that it's kind of noisy. Otherwise, incredibly light and comfortable pad.

I have a Klymit static v which is 18 oz. so about twice the weight and is comfortable enough for me. I considered the X frame but it looked a little too weird.
