    Now to choose a TQ

    I plan to convert a bag or two but I want to buy one from the pros, I lookng for a 20° Q and these are my choices so far.
    For use in an HH hyperlite with supershelter.

    What is the usable difference between these TQ's, I have specs but what about your opinions of these quilts? how do they differ to you.

    WB Mamba 3-season 850+ fp 19 ounces 48" wide U/A
    JRB Sierra Sniveller 800 fp 22 ounces 52" wide 5L stuffed
    UGQ FLIGHT JACKET 850+ fp 22 ounces 50" wide U/A

    I have not seen everything out there of course and still have a lot to learn, is there anything else I should consider? price for the most part is not an issue.

    Do you have any opinions on these choices, or advice on how I should make my choice

    Price is Not an issue? Then I would go custom and get into some of these new truly light shell materials. I'm sure UGQ or Hammock Gear would have no issues for you. Otherwise you can't really go wrong. I have a Mamba and a HG 20 and love them both. One opens up completely and the Mamba is sewn in. Great pieces of gear.

    I have several HammockGear quilts and a GoLite 3-season and highly recommend them both.

    Buy one of each and then you can donate the ones that you don't use to me

    Also use a Hammock Gear Burrow, which has worked well, but I'd consider a top quilt by Wilderness Logics too. I have their full-length under quilt and it's been great. I have to admit I'm partial to Wilderness Logics because I love my Lite Owl hammock, which is perfect.
