    Jacks r Better Nest

    Does anyone have the nest and use it with the The Explorer Ultralite A-sym? I'm considering getting one. They are on sale now. At checkout there is a field for a coupon code. Does anyone have one??

    Jacks r Better Nest

    Ok, let's change things up. Does anybody own a Jacks R Better under quilt? Do you like them and would you recommend them?

    I have a Mt. Washington 3 and absolutely love it. They are superb quilts and very high quality. I would buy it again.

    I had that hammock and my Nest fit perfectly. Assuming you like a good fit and warmth you won't be disappointed! 10yrs later I still use a UQ's from JRB.

    I have been using the Greylock 3 for a couple of years now and I love it. Superb quality and design.

    I have the Explorer Ultralite & Nest combo...they work well together.
    I also use the Nest as a extra layer of insulation over another underquilt on another hammock
    as the temps drops past it's comfort rating.
    Quality gear.

    Mountain views are good for the soul....& getting to them is good for my waistline.

    I have two JRB quilts. The Nest and Old Rag Mountain. I am 100% happy with them both. I got The Nest for Christmas 2012 and Old Rag for Christmas 2013. I use The Nest on both the HH Explore Deluxe and the Expedition (both are classic with bottom open and both have the MOD 4 done from 2QZQ)

    If I were purchasing over the only thing I would do differently is get The Winter Nest instead of the The Nest. Not because The Nest does not keep me warm down to advertised temps but rather since I have lost 75lb, I feel the cold more.

    My son used a Nest with a HH bottom entry and it is very nice. Also used the Nest with my every night tablecloth hammock, WBBB, and a BMBH.

    It is very versatile and great quality. You will not be disappointed. I own other JRB quilts and they are all very nice.
