    What size Burrow?

    I'm about to order a 20 degree Burrow for cold weather hammocking and would appreciate your help. I'm 5'11" and 180 lbs, and am planning to get the regular length, but can't decide whether to get the regular or wide width. Any suggestions? My preference is a sewn footbox and I don't plan to use the quilt on the ground. Thanks in advance for any input.

    Make that three. Regular is fine, especially if you are off the ground.

    Your all but the same size as me.

    Regular as you have been quickly informed will work great in the hammock.

    Wanting to make one similar to the burrow. Would you still do regular width even if there's occasional ground use?

    For what it's worth, when I was deciding, everything I read in other posts suggested that the wide version works better for ground use. If I had planned to use it for ground use occasionally but infrequently, I may still have gotten the regular to save weight and volume in my pack, but if I were going to be using it on the ground twenty percent of the time or more, I most likely would have ordered the wide. As it is, I do not plan on any ground use and ordered the regular. Good luck!
