    Down TQ to pair with AHE Jarbridge River UQ?

    So, I ordered a Jarbridge because of Paul's great sale price and that got me to thinking what I wanted to start saving for next.

    I'm thinking about a down TQ. Suggestions on a roughly 30* (cause that's what the UQ is rated at) down TQ?

    Thanks for your advice and time,
    Kirk

    Here is a great deal on a top quilt to 40 degrees,,with wearing a lite weight set of polar fleece tops and bottoms,,I get in the 30's ok with this.

    I am also a dash cold natured at times as well,,for a lite weight down,,it rocks for me. Be sure tho to get something that will take you down in the elements where you want to be. It pays to over kill sometimes, as you can always vent to cool down if you do get too warm.

    I'm very partial to my Jacks R Better No Sniveler. Mostly because of it's versatility. You can wear it as a serape, use it as an UQ, or as a TQ.

    Stormcrow makes an excellent TQ at hammockgear.com that you will find very well made and comfortable. As does Brandon at Warbonnetoutdoors.com.

    All 3 manufactures do great work and will not disappoint.

    I am a Hammock Gear fan all the way for many reasons. Adam makes a great product as do all the vendors but its Adam willingness to customize quilts which is a big seller for me. I like the channel suspension system he uses on his UQ . I personally would suggest a 3 season incubator or phoenix. Depending if u want a full length or partial quilt. Its never an easy decision picking out a quilt
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    Cool, thanks all. This is something I'll have to save up for so anything currently for sale by an individual won't probably work for me, sorry.

    i'll give another vote for the Jacks R Better No Sniveler it's a multi use quilt
    it's a quilt... it's a parka

    i like JRB quilts when it comes to TQ's ....
    It puts the Underquilt on it's hammock ... It does this whenever it gets cold
