    Very jealous! Looking forward to ordering the new Sierra Stealth (hopefully with the UQ modifications) in a few weeks!

    i can't say right now i havn't used it outside yet... i'll let you know monday
    but from the looks of it and knowing and using other JRB quilts i think it is true to it's rating .... i know pan used one at Mahha and it was in the low 40's
    and he was nice and warm Pam pretty much sold me on it at Mahha LOL

    thats what i had at the MAHHA. i have had mine down to 32 in my skivvies and no problems.
    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness.

    I use the JRB Hudson River into the teens and am still toasty. I can hardly wait to push the limit of the stealth. I know I will love the wearable feature... this was a top 3 reason for the purchase.

    same with me on all parts ....

    i had my Hudson River down to 7 degrees and was warm with a base layer and fleece layer at the 2010 NJ winter hang... befor that my limit was 16 degrees
    my top reason for the stealth was it's wearable as well ... this way i can leave my vest at home to save some weight and space in my pack since my summer pack is only 1500ci
    KK fro the looks of it i figured it could be pushed down below 40F ...
    it's very well made and very "full"
    i plan on giving it a test run this weekend in the yard...i hope it gets down around 40F
