    No Snivller vs Hudson River

    SO JRB is haveing winter sales this whole week and right now the No Snivller is on sale. I keep going back and forth between the No Snivller and the Hudson River. I plan on pairing it with a 2/3 uq and will use the NS or the HR as my TQ. But I cant decide on which one to get. The only real difference I see in them is the No Sniv you can wear the HR you cant. Has any one used both or either of these items and could you please highlight the pro's and con's of both...id really appriciate it. The No Snivller is on sale right now and hopefully the HR will be on sale next week....I need to decide aahh to many choices.....
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    Aren't they the same quilt except for the head hole?

    I have two HR quilts.... The pro is, they work as I expect them to, warm to the mid-20s. Cons? None for me. YMMV.

    Also, the HR can be used as a UQ. Waiting on the next Christmas sale in a few days to get my HR.

    I love my No-Sniveller, but I don't think you can go wrong with either. Being able to wear the NS to keep warm in camp is what swung my decision.

    BTW: the No-Sniveller works great as an UQ too.

    if the only difference is you can wear the No snivller and not the HR it will be the HR for me. I dont trust my self wearing something like that. Ill get burn holes and rips all over it. I just wanted to make sure I wasent missing something. Now I just have to wait for the HR sale the susspense is killing me......thanks guys....

    I have and love both of these quilts. In colder weather I use the Hudson River as my bottom quilt and the No Sniveler as the top quilt. I will admit to be extra cautious with the NS (especially around flames); but you can't imagine what a nice feeling it is on a cold morning to slip your already-warm top quilt over your head as you do your morning chores. Its simply wonderful

    That said, I would personally never wear the NS on the trail. But if I could only have one quilt, then I'd pick the NS over the HR for the extra versatility it gives me. YMMV

    The No-Sniveller is about an oz heavier, for the velcro around the headhole, I suppose. Are you an ultralighter? The headholes are my favorite thing about the JRB quilts. If you get cold at night, at least you'll have it to wear in the morning for warming up.
