    New 3S Burrow and Phoenix (Crowsnest) First Hang at 18*F

    My new 3-season 900-FP quilts, a Phoenix and a Borrow, arrived on Thursday from Hammock Gear. I wasn't going to be like everyone else and gush online about the quality, but WOW they actually ARE top quality.

    And they kept me warm in 18*F wearing a mid-weight poly base-layer with fleece pants and top, wool socks, my Mad Bomber Hat, a silk liner, and my thermo-lite bivvy 2.0 between the layers of my WBBB as a vapor barrier. These are with the standard 900-FP down amount, no overfill. I also had a doubled over, torso-length z-lite in the foot box of my Burrow for my lower legs and feet. I tend to sleep comfortably right to most temp ratings. I did have one cold spot between my shoulder blades, but that was fixed with some suspension tightening.

    Here is a photo from this weekend's NJ/PA hang at Dingmans Campground showing from the top down: My MacCat Standard SpinnUL, Bear Burrito Oven, Burrow, WBBB, and Pheonix.

    Go ahead and gush all you want.....Hammock Gear quality speaks for it's self.

    I had a short discussion with Adam once, and one of the things he said was "I personally inspect everything, and if it is not right we make it again." Then he handed me my new burrow.

    That was enough for me.
