    I said in my other posts and will say it again..I am totally impresses with synthetic vs down,,the way my New River quilt is made and can't wait to get the wife's Jarbridge as its made the with the same material,,soft and light and super warm..I really am glad to go with synthetic UQ cause of the elements we hang in,,and have 5 down TQ's and bags down to 20 degrees,,so covered there with down,,but I am super happy with the equipment Arrowhead puts out! Number 1 in my book! Can't go wrong! and Service is great too!

    Can't wait... or can I?

    I just checked the weather and it is 98* with a 101* heat index. It will be months before I need the Jarbridge (or Jarbidge) here in the hot, humid, sunny South, but I can't wait to get my hands on it!!!

    Since I didn't order until the 17th, so I can't expect too much. In reality I could wait until after the camping trip, if needed.

    So I've had my Jarbidge for the better part of a week now. Up until now I've been sleeping in my hammock wrapped in my comforter and still was waking up with a cold and stiff back (which is completely different than waking up in bed with a warm, stiff back). The UQ was definitely the final piece of the puzzle. I actually had to start setting an alarm again because I slept 10 hours with just a sheet on top the first night I hung with it. Second night was more of the same and since then, well, let's just say I might not be going back to my bed.

    I usually sweat when I sleep, even with the a/c on blast, but somehow this combo has hit the nail on the head and I've been getting some serious sleeping done. I've begun offering my bed to friends crashing at my house. They all think I'm crazy but I know you guys understand.

    After testing it out a few times in the yard (in the high 50s at the lowest) it has performed remarkably! Incredible craftsmanship, easy to set up, and WARM as can be. I'm using a poncho liner as a top-quilt at the moment, but I'm hoping to get a real one soon. Thanks for the great work Paul!

    Paul made me a custom Jarbridge with 3.0 oz of Climashield. Weighs in at 13.4 oz! I have only had this down to about 59°, but I know I should be able to push this well into the 40s. I have had this strung up in temps above 78° and it worked great (not to hot). And the weight is unbeatable!

    I call it my goldilocks hammock. Not too hot, not too cold, for 7-8 months of the year.

    Yes, thats my Jarbridge River underquilt. No, you can't borrow it for the weekend.

    First night out

    Well, I tried it out last night (the Jarbridge). Hiked a couple of miles from the house and set it up just before dark. Was sound asleep by 2100, awakened by 2145 with a severe but fast moving thunderstorm. Back asleep by 2230. Must have gotten into the mid 50s. Slept warm and didn't wake until 0600. Only complaint... I wish it had been cooler. No problem adjusting the Jarbridge for the weather, though.

    Yes, I have a pic, but it's on my cell and I'm too technilogically challenged to get it to the computer. I know, if there are no pics it didn't happen.

    In any case I just wanted to say thanks again for the fine piece of equipment.

    Not to digress but do you have an android phone? wifi at home? I absolutely LOVE WiFi Explorer. It let's you browse your phone from your desktop over wifi. Makes transferring pics 1000 times easier. There's also an app for Photobucket.

    Here is a pic of my wifes new Jarbridge, its Hot Pink on one side..(very loud hot pink ) and coyote brown on the other side..now if I can just get her to hang the coyote brown while in the woods..lmao.. I really love the way the UQ's are made! And the way they fit! This pic is not tightly fitted as to let it vent alittle. Its going to get to 50 degree tonite for a nice test hang for us.
