    What 3/4 quilts work best on the RR?

    I was wondering, if anybody is using a 3/4 UQ on the Ridge Runner Bridge hammock. If so, what make, size, temp rating? Any pics? And can yu use the saddle bags with the quilt? How low have you gone with your quilt?

    I put my DIY FrankenQuilt on mine. No big tests yet but seems to fit well. Approx 35" wide...40" long. Good to around 25 give or take.

    Now your talking,,when you measured it at 35" wide,,,woohooo,,,you have a perfect size,,could be a dash longer,,but I really like the width..I have a email into Brandon seeing if he can decrease the down a couple of ozs to 4.8 oz of down in his 3/4 Lynx to turn it into a summer quilt as what I am looking for. I have the 20 degree full length Lynx which is totally awesome as the fit is like a glove. With 2" baffles I think it would still be doable, but will wait till he answers the email to see what he thinks.

    Spent a night this winter with a 0* HG Phoenix at the head end and a 20* Tewa at the foot end. Overlapped in the middle.
    Temperature went down to -31*C, I was toasty with my baselayer, Vapor barrier suit and a midweight fleece top and bottom. Inside a pair of -10*C sleeping bags.
    Pockets were fully usable.
