    Question Best top quilt for a big buy?

    I'm finally ready to get a top quilt and have looking around quite a bit... Before I bite the bullet I figured I would get the opinion of you guys seeing that everyone here has been helpful in the past.

    I weight in at about 300lbs so I need something a little bigger, I would like 3 season I doubt that I will be camping much below freezing. An nonsewn footbox would be nice but not mandatory.

    What would you suggest?

    Thanks in advance,
    ~Jim

    I doubt you'll find a more accomodating vendor out there! Great product and a super guy to work with.

    I have the JRB No sniveler, and find it fits just fine. At 6' 2" with a 40 chest. The No sniveler is good up to 48" width. This leaves me just fine in my hammock.

    If I were a bit bigger, I'd go with Warbonnet's mamba in a long, which is 55" wide.

    The large Mamba is 1 oz heavier, and cost $20 more for the 7" wider quilt.

    Wilderness Logistics just posted, here's a link to their King Quilt. Looks nice and the price is right.

    Thumbs up on the Hammock Gear Burrow. I wear a 52 jacket and I'm buried in my winter burrow.
