I specifically wanted a sew-thru quilt this time...just for summer temps. Now I have a good summer-only option to cut weight and bulk enough to probably allow me a ~4 oz Z-pack or similar for summer...more weight cut!
Well, I just think it would be slightly warmer (more efficient) for the same weight. It is obviously more labor (read - more money) and it may not be enough warmer to justify it, that is likely what the Jacks decided. Nothing in the current JRB line has anything close to a one-inch baffle, current No Snivelers have 2in baffles (they used to have 1.5in baffles, IIRC)
