    Underquilt Comparison Chart?

    How about a quilt comparison chart, with sorting features? So many newcomers arrive at this site and are so confused. Wouldn't it be nice if there was a guide, with quilt specs and prices? Right now, it takes 3 days to look them all up and figure out how they stack up.

    These are the ones I could remember:

    Feel free to set it up how you see fit. I'm going hiking!

    Stormcrow sent me some work he did on some of the quilts, so we have quite a start on this already. Many thanks to Adam for all his work on this. I have most of it in there now.

    another chart

    No problem. I made my chart just so I know at a glance what is out there. That google spreadsheet is nice too! I have the quilt only comparison chart in a pdf if anyone wants it.

    (aww heck, here is a link to another version of what Mrprez has been doing on the google spreadsheets.

    Quilt Comparison Chart


    If any of the vendors on the chart wish me to change anything or add anything please let me know. I want to be as accurate as possible and I had to dig for some of the information.

    Thanks,

    Stormcrow

    You could delete everything that is there now and cut and paste your entire spreadsheet in there. I was cutting and pasting individual lines, but you could do the entire chart at one time.

    thanks for the spreadsheet. That makes it a lot easier to check everything out. Also the other mfg's can look and see if there is some wrong info and get it corrected.

    Speaking of quilts has anyone checked out Tim Marshall's stuff? I heard he is making some using Cuben Fiber.

    Tim Marshall

    That guy makes some great stuff. I have followed a number of his threads on BPL. He seems to be a very nice guy. Here is his site.

    That is cool. I waws thinking the same thing for a summer quilt. It is a shame to to put 6 ounces of down in 8 ounces of rip stop.
