    Just got my Stealth! (Review linked)

    I used to take my JRB No Sniveler on most of my camping trips but it's pretty warm for summertime, and I was carrying an extra 5.25 oz of quilt that just made me sweat at night. So I bought the Stealth. I think it'll be just what I need for summer temps and it should save quite a bit of pack space as well. I started posting some thoughts on it on my page...I'll keep updating as I get more experience with it. It may turn it into a full review eventually.

    I'm sold on the No-Sniveler design, but I wish the Stealth had one-inch baffles instead of being sewn-thru.

    One inch baffles is close to the No Sniveler anyway...why not just use a NS?

    I specifically wanted a sew-thru quilt this time...just for summer temps. Now I have a good summer-only option to cut weight and bulk enough to probably allow me a ~4 oz Z-pack or similar for summer...more weight cut!

    JJ,

    You may want to correct the MSRP..... should be $209.95.

    Well, I just think it would be slightly warmer (more efficient) for the same weight. It is obviously more labor (read - more money) and it may not be enough warmer to justify it, that is likely what the Jacks decided. Nothing in the current JRB line has anything close to a one-inch baffle, current No Snivelers have 2in baffles (they used to have 1.5in baffles, IIRC)

    It would be a bit warmer, but it wouldn't be the same weight. Not only the noseeum baffles, but you'd need more down as well. Close to the same weight, but it would still put it over a pound.

    Regardless, if it's what you want then run with it! I'm sure someone on HF would make you one if you pay enough. Or maybe JRB will eventually offer a 1" version.

    Extra 10 oz? Did you mean extra 4 or 5 oz carrying a No Sniv rather than Stealth?

    Or is that counting the weight savings of being able to use a light pad due to bulk savings with the Stealth?
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
