    Tried My New River UQ for the First Time

    Went on a long weekend trip with a bunch of ground dwelling friends (lol)... Tried out my New River under quilt for the first time and it worked out great... Setup was simple and quick, it worked exceptionally well with my GTSBP... Since I am 6'3", I ordered the long version and it was great... Night temps in the N GA Mountains got down to 37 degrees, and I was very warm... Thanks for a great piece of gear...

    Glad to hear your New River worked out for you! Where'd you go? Any pics?


    I can't say I am surprised, I have a Jarbridge River, the little cousin to your New River, and I was down to 41° this weekend. Paul sure knows how to do them right?

    Sorry for the delayed reply, been busy getting ready for my daughters 21st birthday since we got back... we were camping dispersed in the Chattahoochee National forest in North Georgia... We had a great time, and again the under quilt was the bomb... Here are some pics...

    Beautiful pics!

    Is the "long" NR wider, too? It looks huge!
