    RayWay quilt kits start at about $80, I believe. Extra for "gorget" and draft stopper and thicker insulation.

    Patrick,
    With your experience I was wondering if you thought the draft stoppers are a worthwhile addition for a top quilt or if you think they may be unnecessary because of the hammock sides surrounding you (vs. on the ground).
    Thanks,
    Redtail

    I really like the draft stoppers. It gives you something tangible to wrap around yourself so that you're SURE you're covered. (without waking up much).

    I don't think the draft stoppers do much in a hammock but I put them on mine anyway. On the ground (heaven forbid) I think they make a lot of difference.

    Ray-Way Quilt Help

    Does anyone have directions, and a list of materials needed to make a Ray-Way Standard Quilt with the ? Every time I try to order a kit from Ray's site I get a refund with a note telling me they cannot supply. This has been going on for quite some time. It wouldn't be so bad if they actually gave me an explanation.

    Really, what is the point of being in business if you cannot support your customers?

    Thanks.

    I don't think Ray needs the money. I'll see if I can find my directions, PM me if I don't reply.

    Yea, you're probably right. Thanks.

    I am currently figuring out what I should order. Here is my list so far:
    2.5 yds black 1.1 oz. rip-stop with DWR
    2.5 yds green 1.1 oz. rip-stop with DWR
    synthetic yarn
    synthetic thread
    5 yds climashield combat

    I should hopefully be able to take this bag down to 30*F.

    Any thoughts, or comments?
    Scott

    If the combat is the 3.7 osy from thru-hiker, I would think a double layer should get you well below 30, unless you are an extremely cold sleeper. My single layer of 5 osy XP is good to below 30 for me.
