    Top Quilts - Box Baffle Construction options

    I've done a few searches in this forum and haven't been able to find what I'm looking for.

    I'm curious which vendors offer Top Quilts with Box Baffle construction (i.e. not sewn through)? I've scoured some vendor websites and haven't been able to find construction methods identified, in some instances. So, for those of you with more experience in this area, could we get a running list going of known vendors who provide box baffle construction in one or more of their top quilt offerings?

    I'll start with one that I'm fairly certain of:

    Most of the vendors that are popular here making down topquilts don't use sewn through construction.

    Hammock Gear Burrow (as you mentioned) ... even on the Economy line

    Loco Libre uses sewn through construction on the Operator and Recon series of summer topquilts, but they use full baffles on the Serrano (straight baffles) and Ghost Pepper (chevron baffles).

    I don't know for sure about all the Jacks R Better quilts. I believe the Shenandoah and Sierra Stealth are sewn through, but the Hudson River, Old Rag Mountain, Sierra Sniveler, & High Sierra Sniveler have full baffles.

    All of the cottage vendors use proper baffled construction, not sewn-through. I believe they all describe their quilts as having "baffles"- which indicates they are not sewn-through. If they do make any quilts with sewn-through construction, they mention it in the product details.

    Arrowhead Equipment doesn’t use baffles, but they use climashield which doesn’t need it.
