I'm such a dolt I've only been lookin' at downUQ's and never thought to consider synthetic until reading a HHSS thread that mentioned AHE UQ's... As warm as down may be, I'm a worste case guy and synthetic is a worste case material for me. Just because you'renot supposed to get down wet, it'll happen to me. My camelback will leak or something, never fails. Price also is fantastic, MUCH more affordable for me.
So onto the questions. I am looking at the New River UQ. Anyone have one of these or have used or seen them used with opinions on them? Pros and cons? Also I see the price listed 155.00 but he mentions making it a 4season quilt with the winter upgrade and pay differential... I didn't find what the differential was. Anyone know how much more it is to get a 4season? Also, does it cost more for the 6' vs. 6'6" and if so, what is it?
