    if i can get myself in gear & start doing some of the stuff that i have in mind, i hope to make one w/ a collar on it.

    the collar would simply be drawn shut when it is being used as a quilt.
    don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!

    Shhh. Don't tell the Jacks, but I'm making my own Sniveller with 3" baffles. I just finished sewing in all the baffles. Next is to sew one side and the 2 ends and I'll be ready to start stuffing. I'll be ready to stuff it after tonight but I may have to wait until Christmas so I can officially receive my gift box of 2 lbs. down.
    stoikurt, et al.

    The No Sniveller with 3 inch baffles is call a Rocky Mountain Sniveller.... It was field tested by francis Tapon on his successful, first ever, CDT YOYO this year, 2007.... BTW, Francis did this hike SUL, under 5 pound base with 26 oz of that base being this JRB quilt and the JRB Hood.

    You can find the details of the JRB Rocky Mountain Sniveller Here... http://www.jacksrbetter.com/index_files/RMS.htm

    Let us know how yours turns out....There are a lot of these under christmas trees this year.

    Thanks, Pan.
    Of course what I am making is not a "Rocky Mountain Sniveller" or a "No Sniveller". It is a Hammock Underquilt / Cold Weather Poncho for my own use. Semanitcs, I guess, but I mean to take nothing away from your fine products. After all I do own a JRB Nest.

    I'm looking forward to it. I'm trying to make a down quilt by the end of Jan. (Winter Hangout).

    Hammock Quilt / Poncho

    I wanted to move this idea to it's own thread since I was getting off topic of this thread. So I wrote up my tutorial for making a hammock quilt with a head hole like the Sniveller line. It's here.
