    New River UQ

    Finally tried out my New River UQ....

    Gotta say, its great... fits my NX-250 perfectly, complete wrap from edge to edge & the full length is great. I can still use the under pockets with no issues. Great product.

    I will look into a down UQ, for back packing. I wanted synthetic, because it will mostly be used on canoe trips & hunting trips where weight & bulk isn't that big of an issue.

    I just received my New river as well. I have mine setup on my Hammock.com UL (GT Ultralite) in the cellar at the moment, but I'll be taking with with me on my October hike.
    I was surprised at how well it can pack down.

    Do you think Triangle Thingies necessary with this quilt. I'm thinking of picking up a set, but I'm not really sure if I need them. I get a pretty good fit now, but I'm thinking I'd like to snug the quilt up a bit more.

    I have been looking at the new river, I have the jarbidge and like the looks of the full length.

    The wife and I both love ours. Great coverage, no cool spots, and works on my WBBB. I use a prussic knot on the cord to shift it for my foot box.

    Once I got the quilt out of the stuff sack, it's been fighting me every time I try to squeeze it back in. Right now I'm storing it in a mesh bag.

    It's not small. I get about 16" long by 7" high in the stuff sack. Hella warm!





    It does fight getting back in the sack...

    No it's not. I do have a compression sack, but I'm hesitant to use it for a full week of hiking.
