    JrB Old Rag

    I think I am losing it. I was checking out quilts today...yeah I know I already have too many...and was looking at the Old Rag Mountain. All I see is the 0F one. Did they not used to make like a 15 to 20 F Old Rag?

    Nope, I am aware of the Hudson but I thought the Old Rag I have is 15 to 20 and not 0F.

    I believe they were advertised as a 10 degree when the Jacks owned the business.

    Jacks "use" to rate them as 0-5 on the Old Rag, then 20-25 on the Hudson River, and 40-45 on the Shenandoah. Then the mass craze started. They changed the values for a while to 5-10 on the ORM, 25-30 on the HR, and I forget, maybe 45 or 45-50 on the Shenandoah. Jack (Peter Pan) told me they did it because too many folks were complaining they couldn't get to 20, or 0, but it turns out they were trying to sleep in their skivvies without regard to the actual conditions. So Jacks raised it up for the folks who weren't seasoned enough to prepare for camping. Just back to the old way of thinking. According to JRB this last week or so, they use the same amount of down as always (with that healthy 25% overfill).
