    Sorry ... not a bunch of help ... either are great ... and both have good customer service. I don't think you'd be disappointed with either.

    Their is a quilt comparison chart some where on here I just dont know where. It has the break down of most of the TQ. Id compare the two in regards to priceing, fill power, and how much down is in the quilt. It also depends if you want a sewn in foot box, or omnie tape. I dont know if Brandon gives the open foot box option but something to think about. Both great vendors. The other thing you could do is just wait and which ever one goes on sale first you buy
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.
