    Warbonnet Diamondback thoughts?

    Well, the Memorial Day sale got me. I currently have two Eldorados, Minifly and Superfly. Bought an UP underquilt (Cedar Ridge) from Dutch and have a 20f Wookie. Only thing Iím really missing is a dedicated TQ..... Which I just ordered. Placed my order during the sale for a long, 60Ē, 20f Diamondback. Iíve been eyeing these for awhile. Does anyone out there actually have one? Extras I ordered were the draft collar and draws on the backside to tension it up a bit. Iím not a long distance hiker so I figured, in this case weight wasnít a priority over comfort. Mostly everything else I have is UL besides my hammock gear. So..... if there are any Diamondback owners out there, Iím looking for some feedback on your experiences!

    I just got one. Taking it out on a trip this coming week.
    It is nice. The draw on the back is nice especially in a hammock like the Amok Draumr. It snugs you nicely.
    The draft collar is nice too.

    I speak to it briefly in the vid below at 1:34 in.

    I got a first gen 20 degree Diamondback when they were first available. The side elastics and draft collar werenít an option at that time, or I wouldíve opted to have them added. I really like the baffle design, as itís almost impossible for the down in the top baffles to migrate to the lower part. I got the 1 oz overstuff, and have been warm into the high teens.

    What Iím not thrilled with is the 10D fabric, which I opted for inside and out for weight savings. Itís like tissue paper, and Iím afraid of long term durability. In retrospect, the 15D would be worth the extra ounce or so for the peace of mind.

    Shug, thanks for the reply. I saw that you had received one and have been looking forward to your thoughts on it. So many good options out there, but the two or so week wait and the sale put me over the edge. Your videos are helping me spend lots of moola lol.

    I ordered it in the brown 20d exterior and the 15d gold interior. I’ll have to post up some pictures after I get it.

    Got lucky and caught your video about an hour after it posted. Great video that makes me want to get outside! The TQ looks great. Thanks for showing the elastics running down the back. I ordered mine with those and it appears that they do their job. Would you say they help keep it tucked while sleeping?

    Keep up the good work Shug!
