    Talking under quilt - Potomac

    Anyone in here have a KickAss Quilt? I am interested in getting an under quilt for my HH and am considering this one.

    I like the idea of synthetic materials for the bottom because I use a small rain fly , which creates a little more potential to get wet. I also like the cool camo color.

    I currently have a JRB nest, but like using it as an over quilt. Cost is my other concern. I don't want to spend a ton of $ on a down quilt, or the time to make one.

    However, I don't like the extra weight do to the synthetic materials. I guess you have to choose your battles.

    I've got one on order, but it's not here yet... does that count?

    There are quite a few people here on the forum who have them. BlackBishop351 has taken over manufacturing them, and I'm sure he'll chime in to answer whatever questions you have. He seems to prefer that they be called 'Potomac' quilts instead of KAQ, though. KAQ was the business name of the previous proprieter.

    Sorry about the delayed response, man...

    Feel free to send me a PM for questions or ordering. Thanks for the terminology correction, too!

    The info Patrick has on his site:

    http://www.kickassquilts.com

    is accurate - I'm using his exact design. I'll also have my own site up soon, hopefully within the week.

    I don't personally own one but several members here have them and I have heard nothing but good things about them.

    I have one also. It is a great product. I really like the way it fastens to and fits (like a glove) my HH ULB.

    Thanks for the info.

    I decided to get one; I think I will get it in gray.

    Thanks.

    Mine kept me warm into the low 20 degrees. Probably the best combination of weight, warmth and cost. Like other aspects of hanging, though, takes a few times to get the adjustments just right. When it's right, it's sweet.
