I know a few people around here have Ray's and/or Thru-Hiker's quilt. I've been thinking about picking up a kit from Ray. From the threads I've read, it seems to do a good job in keeping out the cold and the instructions are clear even for a novice like me. Plus with a few of the bells and whistles it's only $100, so it's very hard to beat in that category. Thru-Hiker's quilt comes close to it in price though. It looks like directions for it aren't as easy though.
I just can't seem to get a good idea of how well this thing packs down since it's not using down. I read that the packed dimensions are 10"x21". This seems awfully big to me. Anybody know if this is right?
How about Thru-Hiker's quilt?
Input from both sides would be helpful.
