    NEW KAQ "Lost River"

    Lost River 2/3rd Under Quilt, the first AHE designed KAQ. And one of the most affordable UQ options on the market today:




    The Lost River ends. I don't mean it drains into another river, lake or the ocean, it ends. Feed by streams from high mountain lakes and Idaho's only remaining glacier the Lost River winds it's way out of the rouged mountains of central Idaho and into the desert and then ends. One minute a thriving small river winding thorough the valley the next it's gone. Seeping away into the soft soil of the desert.


    In much the same way the Lost River KAQ ends short, the first fractional length KAQ at 44" wide x 48" long, with a layer of 6 oz Climashield. The Lost River is cut wider than most fractional under-quilts available on the market today so that is has less fiddle factor, and is less likely to slip to the side during the night, waking you up to adjust the quilt back into place. Based off the New River but with a weight saving 2/3rd length it also compresses to a much smaller size than the NR. Weighing in at just over 1 pound the LR is the lightest and smallest of the KAQ line of synthetic quilts. With 2 inches of loft, good into the mid 30's, plan on using the LR from spring on into fall.





    Weight: (approximately) 1 Pound 1 Oz.
    Includes: Full adjustable suspension, Sil Stuff Sack
    Available Currently In: MARPAT Camo with Black Liner, Reversible.

    Price: $125.00

    Available only at Arrowhead Equipment

    Is 6 oz. Climashield a special wholesale product? I didn't know it got thicker than 5 oz. Looks like a great quilt!
    .. truly to enjoy bodily warmth, some small part of you must be cold, for there is no quality in this world that is not what it is merely by contrast. Nothing exists in itself. If you flatter yourself that you are all over comfortable, and have been so a long time, then you cannot be said to be comfortable any more. - Herman Melville

    No doubt the crash was due to the overwhelming demand.
