    packed size of 50 degree quilt?

    Anyone got any pics or measurements of their 50 degree topquilt packed? Really trying hard to reduce pack volume for some ultra lightweight bicycle creditcard touring this summer. ALso intersted in the 40 degree phoenix packed size. My current plan is to take my NKT, WL bugnet, WL Big Daddy, and hopefully a new summer quilt system. I have a 20 degree Incubator and Burrow I got on the black friday sale I couldn't be happier with. If I could get the 50 degree quilt and the 40 degree bottom quilt in 1 of the 20 segree stuff sacks that would be ideal I think. I really just want to take my oversized Lone Peak bar bag and possibly Arkels new Expedition tail rider.

    Here's his custom 40*F sewn through top quilt I purchased. Probably in the same ball park:

    Here is a review and smoe pics of my fifty TQ and UQ made by Hammock Gear the TQ is in the black stuff sack however if I wanted to I could probably pack it down smaller. Hope it helps
    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.

    20 second answer: A 40F 800FP HG Burrow is crammed easily into a 3.5 liter pot. Found the original stuff sack: 4 liters. Check.
    Adjust downward for higher temp, zoot of fabric, sew-through vs baffles, and loft of down. 2l possible?

    The future customer that is you would get the right and best answer directly from HG. They know how small a bag they furnish, its exact dimensions, in fact. In fact, they'll furnish a single stuff sack for both on an order of two new quilts, I'll bet.
