    6'4"+ Tall People TQ's - Class Action Lawsuit

    I'm 6-foot 4.5-inches barefoot. For you tall folks what did you go with the top quilt?

    Did you find the manufacturers posted dimensions to be smaller due to the filling?

    If anyone is close to my height, please advise on stock TQ's (yes I can order custom). Google could only find one "tall" thread, but he was short... only 6'2"

    What's this got to do with a class action lawsuit?

    However, at 6'4" I use a GI mummy bag with the hood cut off as a top quilt.

    I know Wilderness Logics has the XXL top quilt. You could contact Marty and see if that would work for you. Little pricey but he has a sale starting Thursday

    HammockGear also does the long, I am about to order one. Its $20 bucks more and they are also running a sale for Black Friday. My buddy is 6'8 and he is getting the same one that I am looking at. Adam said it would fit him fine so you should be good

    I'm a HG long burrow devotee, and I'm 6'4".

    HERE IS A LINK to another thread that posed some of the same questions. Good luck on your search, there are some great options!
