    Top quilt for two?

    Recommend a good one? Ideally one that could pack small enough to be a luxury quilt for one, on occasion. I am used to a Marmot Couloir 0deg down bag and don't currently have any kind of TQ, but I am trying to gear up for sharing the hammock with my SO.

    The JRB Family of Large Quilts are outdoor/indoor multiple use quilts filled with high quality goose down. Each includes a draw string on each end and omni-tape sewn the full length of each 85″ side enabling forming a full sleeping bag. At 85” x 61” they are huge yet weigh between 30 and 36 ounces, depending on the model.
    The Katahdin is a winter quilt, baffled to 3 inches and over stuffed to achieve 3.5 inches of loft. It packs to 8 inches in diameter by 11 inches tall and is a soft package that will mold around other items in your pack

    Have you tried sleeping with two people in a hammock? I'm not aware of any success stories; most say it's not very comfortable.

    i have one full night's experience sleeping with two sardines in a clark nx-250. luckily, the fish are both skinny and one of them is pretty darn short. still, we took hours to sort out our rubiks cube of discomfort. at points i was literally counting the seconds before i needed to readjust again. and even once we got cozy, we still woke up utterly drenched in sweat. this was on a 40deg night in the nx-250 with the z-liner insulation and the 0deg bag draped over us. what a lovely time. i would probably pay the cost of a flex 180 just to avoid doing it again.
