It doesn't have to go under your sleeping bag either. I run a thermarest prolite, it's smaller and tapered not a big rectangle so it slips right inside my bag. It packs way smaller than any of the commercial underquilts I've seen and only cost a fraction of the price. I sleep in a -7° synthetic mummy, with long johns I've spent many a comfy night of high humidity in slush and snow right down to 0°. Tie the fly low and a top quilt is unnecessary for those temps. I actually prefer the pad over nothing even when warm as I like the support it offers.
