    Yes, it's a winter width.

    Ha, you've hit on the crux of it. Quite a challenge to get it in my pack, although I have a large volume one. For this weekend I've managed to crunch it up enough inside...

    It came! Impeccable craftsmanship, as always. I love the color. There is some extra fabric with the 9 foot length - I think 8 feet would actually be perfect for a Ridgerunner. But a little bit of...

    My catch-all is getting delayed a bit since Ripstopbytheroll got backed up with orders, and mailed the fabric later than originally estimated. I appreciate the excellent communication from Jared...

    I got an Evergreen Thunderfly and a 0 degree Lynx. Man, I thought *I* ordered early, but at midnight I was sound asleep! I'm glad to hear they're shipping already though.

    Huh, maybe the diameter will be 20 inches! I also got the winter width, as I'll be using a 0 degree underquilt, and topquilt that is currently 30 degrees but will be 0 degrees once I can afford a new...

    Jared's size options are;

    Available in 2 sizes - Standard & Winter
    - Standard - 13" Width
    - Winter - 20" Width

    Not sure whether that's diameter though. Would seem pretty big for a diameter.

    Yes, I did pick 9 feet, but I haven't gotten it yet. I ended up going with custom robin's egg blue fabric, so that adds to the time since Jared has to order the fabric.

    I had been planning on getting a couple ounces of overfill in my new (Lynx) underquilt, but for the sake of 25% off in the sale, I'll do without. It's interesting to hear people's opinions on...

    I'm a young woman and have never seen Viagra in person, but I googled it and Viagra looks like a fairly different shade of blue actually. If you've ever seen an actual robin's egg, that's the color.

  25. Catch-all sack length for Ridgerunner?
