    Dimensions of Full Taper vs No Taper Bandit?

    Does anyone know the dimensions of the footbox of the Bandit (Full Taper vs No Taper)? I'm looking to stack my current sleeping bag (which I use effectively as a quilt) but I'm wondering how the footbox of a Bandit would fit into the footbox of my sleeping bag...

    SIZING RECOMMENDATIONS
    The following recommendations are for general guidance only, you will need to determine the best fit for your given needs.

    Length Recommendations
    66L is recommended for users up to 5'3" tall (160cm)
    72L is recommended for users up to 5'9" tall (175cm)
    78L is recommended for users up to 6'3″ tall (190cm)
    84L is recommended for users up to 6’9" tall (205cm)

    Quilt Width Measurements
    50″ FULL TAPER Shoulders 50″ (127cm) / Hips 45″(114cm) / Foot Box 40″(102cm)
    55″ FULL TAPER Shoulders 55″(140cm) / Hips 48″(122cm) / Foot Box 40″(102cm)
    50″ NO TAPER Shoulders 50″(127cm) / Hips 50″(127cm) / Foot Box 50″(127cm)
    55″ NO TAPER Shoulders 55″(140cm) / Hips 55″(140cm) / Foot Box 55″(140cm)

    Length recommendations are based on using the quilt snugged up around your neck; if you wish to cover your head with the quilt, we recommend sizing up one length.

    To determine the girth that’s best for you, determine whether you are a side sleeper or a back sleeper. If in doubt, we recommend that you measure for side sleeping. Lying on your side, have someone measure you from side to side, starting at the floor up to your chest, over your shoulder and back down to the floor on the opposite side. Add between 4” and 6” to this measurement to determine the appropriate girth for you.

    *Measurements are based on a quilt with a Snaps & Draw Cord foot box, the foot box fully opened, the quilt laying out flat and then pulled snug. The addition of a Boxed Flat Sewn or Insulated Foot Box will shorten the overall measurement of the quilt by 4-6″. This will not affect the sizing recommendations so please make your selection based on the recommendations above. Due to the nature of individual production actual measurements may vary from those shown here*
    Happy Hangin'

    Boxed Flat Sewn and Insulated will be roughly 1/3 the listed width figuring a 1/3 for top width, 1/3 for bottom width, and a 1/3 for two sides if that makes sense.
