    Burrow:regular or long?

    I can't decide between a regular or long burrow.

    Anyone with a regular and wished you had a long?

    I'm 5'11" so a regular would fit but just wondering if I'd appreciate the extra room of a long.

    I'm still debating on that too,

    I'm a solid 5'11'' close to 6'... I'm thinking about emailing them and seeing if maybe a 6' or 6'1'' is available in a custom... just a little extra.

    Out of curiosity, are you talking about the down or synthetic?

    I have the regular and there have been times when I wish had the long. Late fall early spring. I'd like to try on a long just to get a feel for it. I'm right at 6ft.

    I've a regular and am 5'11", maybe 1/4" under whne it's cold

    It works fine for me and I use it mostly for the hammocks but I have used it when sleeping on the ground too, It's just long enough to slip up around my neck and seal off the top cord.

    I think stormcrows rating of 5'11" is right on the upper limit but will work fine at that height.
    I am a GEAR JUNKIE and GRAM COUNTER !!

    There, It's out. I said it, Ahh I feel better now

    I am 6' and have a regular.
    before I purchased I contacted the great folks a HammockGear.com
    I believe Adam is 6' 2" and he uses a regular is what I was told
    I am sure they would answer any of your questions
    Good luck

    I am 6-2 and have both the long and regular versions. The regular fits to my chin and I like the length. Wider is an option I got with the second and it came longer too...like them both very much but the regular fits perfectly length wise.

    Thanks, Hammike. Looking back, it was a dumb question. I see now they meant Hammock Gear Burrow quilt. I at first thought they meant Montbell Super Spiral burrow sleeping bags.
