Boy them some pretty looking quilts. Sure to keep you warm and cozy. As for the weight did you get over stuff? That would add a couple ounces. I personally notice a difference with the lighter material. The 50 rated burrow has a weight of 13.2 ounces where as my 50 rated burrow (7D) weights 8.7 ounces. I also have a 50 rated Phoenix no draft collars weighing 8.7 ounces (7D/M55). So having draft collars will add a a bit of weight. And from what I understand Stormcrow is just starting to putting draft collars on his 20 and 0 rated UQ. I got them on my new UQ quilts to come. If you don't mind me asking what do your quilts weigh in comparison to the HG website. Just curious. Enjoy them quilts.
Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.
Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.
