    Very nice. That's the color I think I'll order.

    I don't think that was it. I was using the basic formula (Width x Length x Baffle size / Fill power) to compare. No matter though. It looks like from your experience they are plenty warm with the amount of down they have in them. I do like the shorter length as well since I backpack. And since I'm so short, it ends up being a 3/4 UQ for me anyway.

    I too got one of Leigh's summer quilts and I absolutely love it. Mine is all black with a total of 4oz of down and packs down very small. The past two weekends I'v camped out to test it out. first night I paired it with a light weight synthetic quilt because I didn't know what to expect but woke up sweating at 28° ,the second night I used it by it's self with a 40°top quilt down to a low of 40° and was perfectly warm so I would rate my summer quilt as 35° as a minimum comfort range without supplement, pretty good for a summer quilt Thank Leigh for such a great quilt.

    Same results here. Had my 3s out at the MAHHA this weekend and there was definately interest from people wanting to see one up close. A forum vendor in fact took a look at it, and commented on its quality. Couldn't be happier with mine.
