    Talking Another happy Burrow owner!

    Well, my new 20º Burrow arrived today, in fact, about 20 minutes ago! Whooo Hooo! It was eveything I had hoped for and more. I do like the velco closure at the bottom. Can't wait to try it out.

    Hammock Gear makes some great kit. I have a few underquilts of theirs but hope to add a burrow soon enough.

    I have several TQ's and UQ's from Hammock Gear (plus a sewn through Burrow on the way) and they are all of top notch quality.

    Enjoy the new Burrow all and the warm cozy downy goodness it has to offer.
    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.

    My 20*'Burrow arrived yesterday. I purchased mine during the 20% off sale a few weeks back. Very happy with my purchase. I posted a unboxing video yesterday.

    A couple of points to add here.

    First I ordered the long with 1 oz of overstuff, knowing that this would add to the weight. The quilt weighs in at 23.5 oz, which is more than I would have expected. But that was a choice, and one I am not ultimately unhappy with. When I lay in the burrow, I can still pull quilt over my head (even if loosly). Compared to the Kelty Light Year it is replacing, it is an astounding improvement.

    Coupled with a 20° Incubator, this will keep me tosty in temps as cold as I am likely to experience. Having learned what I have on other threads, I may one day replace this Incubator with one containing 1 or 2 oz of 900 fill overstuff (mine was made with 800 fill and no overstuff). Of course I could pass the original on to my son. He might like that.

    I can say the fit and finish of this product is superb, but everyone here knows that. In fact, I don't think I have ever had anyone complain that the quality of any product from Hammock Gear was anything less than spectacular!

    I was looking forward to hanging in the backyard this weekend, but with lows in the mid 60s, There is just no way I can hang out with this in those conditions. Here's to praying for a cold snap at the end of October.

    I was right, conditions were just too warm to hang out with the burrow. However, I have a scheduled campout this weekend, and temps are suposed to be in the mid-to-low 50s. This is too cold for my "summer" fleece, so it looks like I will get to try out the burrow after all.

    Can't wait! I will be sure to give it an accurate report.

    lower 50's will be better than the mid 60's.
    this past friday night I was out in my yard - I think it got to a low of 61.
    I was wearing shorts & a tank top - 3 season yeti for UQ, 3 season Burrow TQ & woke up sweating

    enjoy!
