    Quilts 101: Erasing the Myths

    Recently there has been a lot of talk on the book of faces about quilts. Numerous myths, uneducated suggestions, and such. So I asked a couple of friends to join me on my weekly podcast to clear the air and provide some education. So if you want please join me, with Don and Dave of JRB, Warren and Richard from Cedar Ridge, and John from Trailheadz. It's scheduled for this Thursday, March 11th at 7 pm EST. It will be live so audience participation is welcomed!

    Cool. I know you didn't ask but here's some fodder for your conversation based on what I've read here and on Reddit and other sites. Plenty of confusion/misinformation to go around:
    1. The role fabric and fill power play in determining weight and packability
    2. 1 quilt to rule them all is probably not a thing for most people who go out in a variety of conditions
    3. "What temp should i get?" is un-answerable!!
    4. Many, many questions are easily answered with a simple inquiry to a vendor. For example, what size, what width, what color, customization. I'm not sure why people ask these questions on a web forum rather than putting the same energy into writing to the manufacturer
    5. Do I need a hammock-specific quilt or can I use the one I tent with?
    6. Over-fill. Is it worth it?

    Interesting to say the least. It'll be a challenge to keep these friends and drinking buddies on task to say the least.

    One question I haven't seen yet - Down is superior insulation?

    Types of insulation and conditions they work well in and conditions they don't.

    Synthetic vs down I guess

    What about drafts? Is that a potential problem for TQs and UQs vs bags? And/or TQs/UQs vs pods?

    Same question for hoods.
