    Ah. Hope it insulates better than it insinuates...

    I'm going to return this quilt.

    It really didn't work for me very well at Mt. Rogers. It ballooned up into my face whenever I moved, and I'm just not happy with how loose the insulation is inside the outer cover. There's really nothing keeping it connected to the outer cover at all. I ended up sleeping with one hand near my mouth to keep the quilt from blocking my nose and mouth. It really needs some work to make it useable.

    Quilt loops would be a must with this quilt. Too many mods would have to be made to really enjoy it.

    I think I'm still within my 14 days... gotta get it cleaned and shipped back.

    I sent this quilt back on Saturday.

    I had a brief email exchange with Chris at Fanatic Fringe asking what I thought would make it work better with hammocks (since they didn't design these quilts with hammocks in mind). I strongly recommended quilt loops. Hopefully they will include them in the next design for their quilts.

    I can't understand why they put the quilt on the market without loops. Even the crap bed quilts you buy at Walmart are sewn-through, serving the same purpose...

    Well, maybe now they'll start! They're well made (I mean they're well, made). I don't know how you can call it a quilt if nothing's actually quilted, though.

    I'm not bad-mouthing the company though. The company makes some great stuff -- they just need to work on this particular item a little bit more.

    I received a refund for the quilt. I'm very happy about that.

    I'm now in the process of making a Ray-Way quilt in blackbishop351's workshop and learning about lots of other DIY stuff as well.
