Hammock Gear 3 S – Summer Quilt Comparison. With Pictures
Thought I'd put these pictures up for anyone that may be interested.
I've had a lot of folks here help and read a whole lot of useful information, In my case pictures are great when deciding gear. Hope someone finds them usefull in making there quilt choice.
These are pictures of both the 3 Season and Summer Crowsnest / Phoenix and 3 Season and Summer Burrows.
I only took the quilts out of the sacks, fluffed them up a bit with a shake and took the pictures, they will all loft up a little more given some time.
For the height guide I used something as universal as I could think of.........Toilet Paper Roll
The Summer burrow is in green outer, silver inner, standard amount of 900 fill, regular width/length with snapped foot box. 469 gram's in stuff sack.
The 3 Season burrow is in black outer, green inner, standard amount of 900 fill, regular length but widened by 6" for the ground if required. 652 gram's in stuff sack.
The summer TQ looks a bit deflated in the double folded picture for some reason, It's not lacking fill at all and is exactly what I wanted in a light, summer quilt.
The Summer crowsnest / burrow is in green outer, silver inner, 900 fill, 1 oz of overfill. 403 gram's in stuff sack.
The 3 Season crowsnest / burrow is in Black outer, silver inner, 900 fill, 2 oz of overfill. 542 gram's in stuff sack.
For the pictures the 3 Season UQ doesn't look that different in loft to the summer UQ. I can assure you there is a BIG difference in loft when in actual use. The 3 Season normaly lofts like crazy and the baffles are a lot more full with down and there is no "fiddle" factor with gaps in the down and the down doesn't shift as much. But the summer UQ with a extra 1 oz of overfill is a bit of a suprise package as it is very lofty for the amount of fill.
Like I said, Hope these pictures can help someone out. I'm just glad to give a little back to the forum and people that have helped me in the past.
Now, NO MORE GEAR :scared: (That's what I have to keep telling myself)
Great looking kit there... nice and FAT on that loft! Been getting out on the track much? Would you be be keen on a blue mnts hang in the next month or so?
I wonder if you could stack the two and use them as a winter quilt? Not sure if this would overcompress the inner quilt, but that would be cool if you could, summer for summer, 3 season for spring and fall, and both for winter.
I just hung my summer crowsnest between my hammock and my JRB MW3 full length UQ and it's working very fine, if fact filled in a bit of a gap I had using it with a bridge hammock
I think they would stack okay.
You'd have to have the UQ's adjusted right but the TQ's would be fine as my 3S is a wide and has more internal room that would fit the summer TQ nicely.
Great pics. My quilts should be arriving soon.
Have you found that the extra 6 inches ofwidth makes much of a a difference when ground sleeping?
Haven't used it yet but I'm certain it will be nice when it's cold.
Will enable the TQ to wrap around a bit further, hopfully sealing up a bit better.
For me the standard width is just a tad narrow around my shoulders on the ground.
I hope I don't have to go to ground but some alpine trips there is little choice sadly ....
