Ducted Duvet

with temperature-stabilizing limb slits
  [vote for,

A duvet can be inviting and cozy to crawl under on a cool evening, but can get hot and sweaty during the night. Feverish sleepers next to a bedfellow can only expose an arm, footsie or leg outside their quilt edge.

A duvet with ducts parallel to the body would make comfort cooling so much easier. The double bed version would sport two pairs of slits at shoulder level, two pairs at the hips and two pairs at the knees. Springy plastic strips would be sewn into both sides of each slit to prevent drafts, while allowing free circulation to any protruding limb.

The slits might also inspire a variety of downy sexual frolics among the semi-cold/modest set.

       I like! It could be amusing if there's cause to suddenly spring out of bed.

       Ha! That reminds me of an earlier mattress when I used to wake up with both arms still asleep (paralyzed) and wonder what I would have done if there was a fire or ongoing burglary.

       Its a good Idea, and it rightly gets some tasty bread based products.
However, I could never have one.... my sleeping habits are too kinetic...
