    The quilt comparison chart shows the stats.

    The Old Rag Mtn has 2 inch baffles vs 3 inch baffles for the Rocky Mtn Sniveler.
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    The RM No Sniveler has a head hole, the Old Rag doesn't. Francis Tapon used a RMNS on a Cont Divide Trail Yo-Yo, along with a JRB hood.

    I use my Katahdin as a 3/4 peapod/top quilt, held in place with 1/8 shock cord.



    Seen here combined with FF rock wren up top[ and JRB ORM + RMS as underquilts ... used this system below -40 F for a week. I use the foot end draw cord to form a spiral cone to seal out air drafts with a mini biner. Despite the rediculous layers of my system, the whole thing remained breathable and I had no condensation issues between any of the quilts.

    thank you
    Is there a way to see a pic of this or get the web address where you purchased? I have the same hammock and would like to go the same route as you. Thanks!
