    It is pretty big when it's inside the stuff sack....as to be expected since it has synthetic fill. Not sure how small you could get it with a compression sack though.

    I honestly don't know which one I have bit it's the one that was on sale at the end of the summer (camo/coyote). New years eve I took down into the mid thirties and got a bit chilly. But.......this IS my first year camping from a hammock. I had on cabelas down long underwear but only a regular coleman mummy bag as a top quilt. I think the main reason I got chilled is because I didn't pitch my tarp properly to block the wind. I got up at 330 am and remedied that problem. Nice and toasty after that

    Sounds like you have the 3 season model as the 1 Season is only rated to about 50.

    I just got my Jarbridge today and get to use it next week on a 10 day field training exercise. I couldn't really find any info on maintenance and I didn't want to start a new thread. Do I have to store it flat when not in use (storage) like other UQs, how do I clean it, and what if for whatever reason my tarp fails and it gets wet? thank you for putting up with a most likely noob question.

    Owning and caring for a Jarbridge River

    Nothing wrong with staring a new thread.

    I have the Summer Jarbridge River. It is just like the regular Jarbridge River, but it is made with 3 oz Climashield rather than the standard 6 oz product. It weights in at 13.4 oz, and I have taken this quilt as is down to 41°, and with thin supplemental ⅛" pad, I have been comfortable at around 30°. This is my goto UQ for 8 months of the year, and I plan on using this anytime the forecast low is over 45°. It packs down plenty small (nerf football sized); I imagine the regular JR is a bit bulkier. FWIW, I am 6' 1", and the ⅞ length quilt suits me fine in the range I use this quilt.

    Care is easy. Hook it up, use it, pack it up, <repeat as needed for additional nights>, take it home, hang it up to air out (a couple of days as needed), store loosely (I use a pillow case).

    Let me know if you have any other questions.
