Can't you send it back to Katabatic given the marks on the fabric? If I'd paid that much for a quilt I would not accept any defects, even minor ones.
Otherwise if you don't need the money now I would suggest waiting for northern hemisphere's winter, you'll probably get a better price for it than on the aussie market.
I have a Grenadier and that's what I am planning on doing for similar reasons to yours (over the last couple years I haven't slept well in the bush, thought it was my mattress than was to narrow, got a larger one, still not happy and had to come to the conclusion that I was probably lacking the cushioning underneath me as well as the feeling of being enclosed... so going back to mummy shape, see what happens!).

I don't see the marks as an issue. I wouldn't consider it a defect at all. I have had the same marks on new bags from Western Mountaineering. I just wanted complete transparency for the buyer.

I have it listed on a few US sites. I am sure someone will snap it up soon.

I hear you. I have been using WM bags almost exclusively for the past few years, but I like playing with gear and thought I would try the Alsek. If quilts worked for me my search would stop at Katabatic. The design is excellent.

Cheers
