After SEVERAL conversations with Adam…and bouncing around ideas on going with either the 40*F or the 50*F Burrow, M50 or other fabrics...I, or should I say (we) decided I'd go with the following:
A sewn through 74" x 50" quilt with 6 ounces of down, snap footbox construction and black 10D fabric that should easily take me to 45*F
It arrived this morning in advance of my outing this weekend, as he promised me. Unfortunately lows may only be in the upper 80's...
I tossed it on the scales, and it weighed in at 10.5 oz. I believe that's nearly an ounce less than the comparable M50's I've been seeing out there, and I can attest it is smooth as a baby's bottom.
Nonetheless, it is certainly a good 6 ounce less than the Montbell #5, I've been using in the summer months and only 2 or 3 ounces more than the silk liner I've been using in extremely warm conditions.
Black is the only color option for this fabric, but in my opinion it’s more palatable than that purple Montbell #5.
Of course it has the same quality engineering of the 20*F products I own from Hammock Gear, and this even has a fancy little logo!
Now after a few good tests, I'm going to have to decide if I want to take my 20*F gear in the same shell/fabric direction...??? Time will tell, but I have a feeling I already know my answer.
Thanks again to Adam and Jenny, as usual your flexibility is amazing and your awesome to work with!
