I just bought a Hudson river. I didnt think I would ever wear it so i saved the 20 extra bucks. If I happen to get cold I can always wrap the quilt around me while I sit by the fire.

I was very happy I had my NS on the AT when it started snowing unexpectedly. My over-sized Packa and the NS was the warmest invention. The Packa was long enough that I didn't have to worry about damage to my NS when I sat in the shelters to socialize. I was very comfy and warm.
