    Jarbidge temperature rating?

    Hello hangers! I recently purchased a Jarbidge UQ from AHE, and i was wondering what temperature id be comfortable taking it down to? I know it says three season, so im guessing around 50, but it would be nice to hear from someones personal experience. Thanks!

    Usually, three-season means freezing temperatures.

    There are a couple of rating systems used, the least favorable to you is the one developed by the U.S. Army which keeps a person alive for up to four hours at a given temperature. So, a 30F will be very cold at freezing using that specification. They military also specifies a "comfort" temperature as well, but this is much higher than the survival rating.

    I doubt any cottage industry has their quilts tested in the proscribed manner, which is better for us. This means someone probably used the quilt and decided the coldest temperature at which they were comfortable.

    I'll trust the subjective opinion of any of our cottage quilt makers over a mannequin any day.

    Per Arrowhead's website, 3 season means mid 30s. I think most owners think Arrowhead is right on the money with their estimates. I am a warm sleeper, so I think mine will be fine to about 30. I am looking forward to some cooler temps to test it out.

    My KAQ new river from AHE is rated to 30 and I have had it down to 29 just fine.
