    TQ for hammocking and tenting.

    Hey guys, im looking for my first top quilt to suit a side/ back sleeper of 5'11" (im a teenager so im still growing but i dont have much left to do). I would like something for around 23 Fahrenheit. I have looked at hammockgear.com, underground quilts, warbonnet outdoors, MLD, golite, JRB and so on, some of the ones i have liked the looks of.
    -Burrow 20
    -Golite ultralite 800
    -MLD Spirit 28

    With the burrow im concerned its not wide enough for someone that moves around a little whereas the golite is wider.
    Any insight appreciated!!!!!
    Matt.

    As for ground use and side sleeping along with it. You will need a wider top quilt.

    Wilderness Logics makes King Size top quilts that are on par with the others that you've mentioned already.

    Cheers

    Most of the sites you've looked at will do some custom work for you. I had my burrow made to 54" and I know Paul at Underground will work with you too.

    +1 to Dbl'C's post. Paul is awesome to work with!
    Its a proven fact that 78.4% of all statstics are made up on the spot.

    I can pretty much custom make a TQ to your specs as can most of the fine vendors on this forum, 58" wide should take care of wiggle room for both hammock camping and tent camping depending on your build...

    I recently got a 20 deg TQ from enLIGHTened equipment; I'm very happy with it. They offer a range of sizes. Definitely worth checking out.
