    Are Burrows Reversible?

    I have a burrow that is green on one side and black on the other. Does it matter which side is out?
    I ordered a black burrow, and got a black/green one. Not a problem, I love it, just wondering if one side is DWR, or if the baffles are constructed a certain way that neccessitates a right side out.
    Based on the orientation of the footbox snaps, it was made to be black side out.

    I like the green to be out now that I have it.

    I have the same, ordered black, it's black on the outside, green on the inside. I would assume you could flip it inside out, just watch the snaps.

    I'd look carefully to see if there's a differential cut to the TQ fabric (one side wider than the other). If so, there is a "right" and a "wrong" side out. For a lighter weight TQ, it won't make much difference, but where more loft is involved, it could make some difference in temperature rating.

    I'm sure you can reverse them but you'll have the drawcord on the inside as well as the snaps. I wouldn't like that at all so I would just keep it the way it is. It's not like an UQ where everybody sees it, why do you have to have the green on the outside? Functionality? It should perform the same whether you have black or green on the inside. Just curious is all.

    I don't believe they are differentially cut like the UQ's but you could always call Adam and find out.

    Are Burrows reversible?

    You can try to back them up, but they don't like it.

    pretty sure the green goes inside. i think my buddy spoke with stormcrow and he said that the green had the softer feel, so that should be against your body...

    Burrows are differential cut.
