Turning Sleeping Bag Inside Out?

Is there any reason why I can't turn my HMG quilt inside out for a slightly more varied experience? The inside of mine is silver and the outside is navy. If it's warmer, would turning the silver toward the sun better reflect light, rather than reflecting heat back towards my body? Is there something about this approach that I might be missing? I've never seen anyone do it before and I'm curious. I also like silver better than navy, so consider this a pointless aesthetic question, as well.

    Thank you so much for this thorough and thoughtful answer! Exactly what I was looking for and I really appreciate it. My perfect quilt would be black and blaze orange... but I guess I'm weird 🤣
