    Question New JRB Products

    So I think I may have missed some previews of new JRB products after I left MAHHA - Am I imagining things, or did they hint at some new gear? Anyway - someone should let me know so I don't order something only to find out a month later they've got something better

    One thing is the new Sierra Stealth, Pan was wearing one under his Dri Duck I think. I'm wondering if the difference is the extra ounce of down or if it is baffled.

    I saw a prototype New Mt Washington 4... It was packed with down. Looked very similar to the naked eye, but truly had an epic amount of down. In fact, I'm pretty sure I pointed it out to you after you checked out the Exos.

    i got to see the new tarps they look sweet and the new stealth .... it's 54 inch wide at the top and 42 inch at the foot end if i remember .... looks very sweet...
    i just ordered one of the old stealths as part of my warmer weather setup
    It puts the Underquilt on it's hammock ... It does this whenever it gets cold

    I am the proud owner of a 10 ounce full size Spinn tarp. I need to get some pictures up but it is fantastic.

    The Trail Days Sale started yesterday....

    There are new JRB Hex Tarps... 11 feet ridge line, 8 feet wide... bottom edge 72 inches...Lage enough for marginal summer top protection for BMBH and truly great for gathered end hammocks... Spin at 9.9 oz and sil at 12.9 oz.... camo coming soon.

    The Stealth is on close out (Regulars are now GONE) Couple longs left.... expect they will be gone by morning.

    The New JRB Sierra Stealth is replacing the Stealth... same great weight, better and more efficient coverage...TQ and wearable roles only.

    Zippered BMBH has corner softeners in the zipper path for smoother operation in the New 2011 models...We are having trouble keeping these in stock ( Nice problem to have...Unfortunately ther may be another outage by Mid may until late June when our next batch is due out.

    And yes all these items were in use and on display at the MAHHA.

    I've slept under the new Sierra Stealth the last two days.
    I have the say the Jacks nailed this one.
    I'm comparing it to the Stealth No Sniveler which is an awesome quilt in its down right but the Sierra Stealth has even more utility if that is possible and would be an idea choice for someone who tents/tarps and hangs because the 'ground' coverage of the new model is much much more forgiving.
    I asked Jack to add the tie outs that make this quilt functional as a UQ too-I don't know if this is standard for this quilt....so a quilt that can be
    TQ
    UQ
    Capote
    Ground quilt.
    Hard to beat
