    WTB: Golite Ultra 20

    I can't find one of these anywhere. Either they're not makin em no more or they're selling like hotcakes. Either way I want one. I figure if it doesn't live up to the hype, I'll seam rip one side and over fill with some more down.

    Right now Amazon shows one of each length in stock.

    errr... I dunno. I keep hearing of people getting em for less than 200. I don't wanna be stingy, but I was hoping for a deal. I guess I'll just keep looking out for another few weeks, then I'll go ahead and order off amazon. Thanks, I completely forgot about them. To me Amazon=kindle for ipod books

    You just said you wanted one, not that you wanted it cheap.

    You'll probably have to wait for GoLite's next sale. I think they have one about every 3 months.

    Per comments on BPL, I think the reason they are hard to find is GoLite is supposedly changing it for 2010. THey are putting a bit more down in the Ultra 20. So it will be maybe 4-5oz heavier, but closer to the the 20deg rating.
    The other rumor is they will have a similar bag as the Ultra 20 (weightwise) but will rate it for 40F.

    Agreed. I think it has been discontinued and you are now at the whim of whatever is left out there. If you are looking for something in that weight range, check out JRBs quilts, otherwise it'll look like you need to pony up some cash.

    Maybe I got one of the new models, but I slept in mine in 15dF temps last week and was warm as toast. Mine is a long and weighs 21.5 oz.

    In mine you really cant just rip a seam and add down. The quilt has 3 compartments, one middle and 2 edges, so you would have to rip the outside to get to the inner middle baffle seams. Only way to get to the middle without disturbing the outer baffels is to cut into the face of the cloth which is not a good idea.

    At any rate I was wearing heavy johns, thick socks and a bomber style down hat.

    I expected it to be a cold sleeper so I originally went to bed with a golite slasa jacket on and within 30 minutes I was buring up so that went into the bottom.

    Under insul was a full length CCF pad, (2) 1/2 length pads turned sideways at the body area, similar to a speer extender setup, Garlington under setup only made with a poncho and 2 garbage bags filled with space blankets.

    Tarp was a 10x12 in storm mode.

    Only, as a poncho reference substitute for the normal garlington pod.
