    Can you suggest a TQ for me?

    I'm 5'7", looking for a synthetic 3 seasons TQ w/ foot box. No lower than 20* needed. I can be a warm sleeper so I imagine a more narrow quilt that I'll be able to kick a leg out of will be helpful, right? What other factors do I need to be aware of as a first time TQ buyer?

    Check with Paul at arrowhead equipment. He has some synthetic TQ's.

    +1 on Paul at AHE. He's got good stuff and excellent customer service. Hard to beat.

    Yeah, I got some stuff from him earlier this summer. I'll probably get my quilts from him too since everyone else sells down. We have allergies in the house, down is a no no for me (even though I'm not the one who's allergic).

    I have his synthetic top quilt and can vouch as to the temp ratings. Good stuff.

    GoLite is very nice and so is the price to temp ratio!
