    Down alternative TQ

    Hey all looking for info and opinions. My wife is allergic to down and such and am looking for a good top quilt option that is big enough for an Eno Double Nest that will cover both of us. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

    Arrowhead Equipment has nice synthetic top quilts. The TQs are really made for one person, but the White Cloud might work.

    When you and she are are not the hammock, are you in the same direction, head to head, or opposite, toes to head? And what temps are you looking at?

    You might also do well will a synthetic bed quilt--not hammock specific.

    As heyduff said TQ's are made for one person. With that said loco libre makes wide synthetic TQ's. Maybe contact them and see what they can do for you.

    If it doesn’t need to be a hammock quilt, REI sells Rumple brand fleece and synthetic blankets

    Hey everyone thanks for the responses! We sleep heads the same way. I'm now thinking I may enlist my wife's help and sewing abilities and do a DIY TQ that will cover us both. Thanks for the ideas and recommendations!
