    Ah, very good. Misunderstood what the term meant then. I was thinking it meant the baffles ran side-to-side as opposed to the length of the quilt.

    That would be horizontal baffles as opposed to longitudinal. Too many terms! lol.

    I have a JRB Mount Washington 3 convertible and I love it I use it as a 2/3 under quilt (UQ) in the summer. When it gets cooler I put the whole UQ together. Then when it gets near 0F I add a thermarest pad to it. It works great!

    I suppose because it is a more expensive approach. At least with fancier baffles, I'm not sure a dif cut would actually cost more to make.

    There is one advantage to a non-snug design, at least with a Speer PeaPod. It makes it easy to hang it more loosely, and then add whatever extra like down vests or jackets or a light quilt, to obtain about whatever amount of insulation you might need.

    But I wonder if that could also be done by just hanging a snug design more loosely? I don't know, but it is easy to do with a PeaPod.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
    Romans 8:18,21-22
