    Feel free to set it up how you see fit. I'm going hiking!
    Hey, thanks! I didn't know this spreadsheet existed. It's such good information, I've added it to my bookmarks.

    Well, looks as if I have been a bit lax in my rush to get these out the door to get my specs updated regularly. So here is a some info to fill in the gaps in the spread sheets

    Potomac: 89x58 that is the max width as the quilt is kind of and offset diamond. weight has been coming in at about that 1 pound 12 oz mark pretty consistently. And as all the quilts are using the same 6oz climashiled 30's should be a good bet for most users.

    New River: 78 or 84 (long version) by 48 wide. and the long hits right at about 2 pounds for weight, regular length comes in an oz or 2 less.

    Fully lofted I am seeing about 2 inches of loft on all three quilts. All are using 1.1 DWR ripstop for shell and liner, include adjustable suspensions and stuff sack and a mesh storage bag.

    ok, well, i've made a few slight changes to the 3 season yeti, same fill and dimensions, but shaved off an oz. weight is now is 11.5oz (incl. stuffsac)

    winter yeti rating should be 0-10 i think, only a consensus will tell for sure, but it's got 1/2" taller baffles and a higher overstuff % than the mw4, and it seems like folks feel the mw4 is rated correctly, so i can't see it not being at least as warm.

    no problem

    Thanks Brandon and Paul. All of the changes are made. If I missed anything or you would like to add anything let me know. Also, if anyone is interested in the excel file let me know.

    I think it really is nice having all that technical information at one's finger tips!

    Thanks Stormcrow. Looks good, thanks for putting this together. It's a good reference for everyone. Hope to have some more updates for you to add in the coming months, I hope to start doing some down versions of the current line and some more models for this spring.

    That spreadsheet is a jewel of information.
    The only other thing I would like to see is a column on the quilts that indicates whether it is a TQ, UQ, or both.

    Thanks for doing this.

    thanks stormcrow, looks like a fairly accurate chart. one more thing i did notice, i'm using 850+ fill, i believe te-wa might be as well, but i can't remember for sure.

    also, i don't know how useful it is to have 2 thickness categories, one actual baff height (which is a definate spec.) and one "how thick is it when you lay it out flat on the ground". what makes one quilt gain 1" when laid out flat, while all the others only gain 1/2". i realize you're probably just using given specs on people's websites and making guesses on others for that particular spec, but the category itself seems more speculative than specification in the first place. (kinda hard to get an accurate measurement on it as well). if i personally were doing it i'd have one category instead of 2 and label it "baffle height". just my opinion though.
