    Ah sorry about that. I'm 5' 9" and the standard length bottom quilts cover me perfectly. I would recommend a 70" for a warmer rated quilt (ie 50 and up) and longer the colder the quilts rating to get the needed coverage but you can dial it in if you are a gram counter to be exactly the length you desire. One company rates their quilts short, normal, and long based on 73, 78", and 83 as an example.

    For what it's worth, at 5'4" I'm good with a uq of 70", so add 2" and you should be ok.

    Well, my 60" 20* changed to order processing today...so hopefully I will have something to add to this conversation in a week or so. I'm 5'9" and figured 60" would be sufficient to cover from shoulder to toe, or head to calf, whichever suits me most. We'll see!

    Ordered today! The Dark Olive Ion fabric should be a good color match for my Dutchware Chameleon and my Operator Series Habanero (which is currently processing!), so I should be all set for summer pretty soon. Thank you, George!

    I can't wait to get some feed back and reviews on these quilts. I'd like to see some weight differences in the standard and wide widths.

    The shipping notice for my 20* arrived Memorial Day! Ordered on the 21st - should be here for my weekend trip to tune and fiddle, although staying warm won't be an issue.

    Habanero SS Arrived!!

    My LL SS 20* arrived today! The timing couldn't have been more perfect since I was getting my stuff together for a weekend camping trip when the postman arrived. Not 20* UQ type of weather here in the South, but it's the perfect time to get familiar with it. Also posting my first-ever unboxing video. Kind of a rushed job with quick edits and upload to Youtube as I was anxious to get going. So here it is!

    That looks amazing! I just ordered mine in the same color configuration- except with black grosgrain. I love the Olive/Orange combo!
