    I guess I missed this post. It speaks to something I have been asking about for a while: Are the AHE quilts rated VERY conservatively? Of course, people vary greatly.

    Still, don't all of the 3 season AHE quilts, all rated at 30F - have a layer of Climashield that weighs ( I think ) 6 oz per sq.yd.? If so, that just seems like it ought to be warmer than 30F for a lot of folks, maybe most folks. I really would expect more like at least 20 for average to warm sleepers, maybe more, assuming the UQ is fitted perfectly. ( Y'all know how easy it is to end up with some undesired venting or gaps with UQs)

    And your result of still warm at 9F is for sure way beyond the expected 30F, and sounds like you maybe could push it a little lower.

    And what weight of CS is in the 1 season? You are getting in the 40s. I get in the 40s ( with a CS Yeti ) with one layer that weighs 2.5 oz/sq.yd.. But again, if I ( and you ) are getting into the 40s OK with 2.5 wt., I would really expect to get way past 30 with 6 wt.

    Are these UQs even dif cut? If they are not, it doesn't sound like it is hurting them much.

    Going by users feedback here at HF, it sounds like Paul really makes an excellent quilt which, even though not down, has excellent warmth to weight, even better warmth to cost, which will be relatively immune to moisture problems and has very little fiddle factor. Sounds like volume is the only downside. For those of us who still use somewhat larger packs, that is not a huge downside. Oh, and maybe it lacks the windproofing of an HHSS, but every other stock system lacks that also. Just have to be skilled with your tarp and at finding sheltered spots, or add a sock/UQ protector. Or stuff a Jarbridge down under the pad ( or around the UC) in a HHSS! Lookout, HOT enough to burn!

    Any thoughts on the rating being a bit more conservative than most? Maybe Paul, like Ed Speer, is just a really cold sleeper and rates his quilts for his needs? I'm looking forward to some of Y'all seeing how far these things can be pushed this winter.
    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.

    42X58 or 40X60 ??
    I asked Paul about the dimensions last week before I ordered my Jarbridge, as there was conflicting information (now fixed) on the website. His response was 42"x58", but he can make you a custom 40x60 if that's what you want.

    Nice to know. Mine should be arriving this week, and temps are dropping. will keep posts on how low it can go Just wondering how the jarbridge works without the triangle thingies. In an effort to keep my spending down, I left those off my order... will I have issues with a WBBB or BIAS WWM?

    i just found out about these...you got an early WB yeti like Cannibal (prehistoric yeti )...with add a layer(s)...sounds like a great idea that didnt keep rolling...i have a set up to do almost the same thing ( if it gets cold enough to test run it ) with the newriver by adding a 1-S or 3-S jarbridge inside it . clips are all installed and pre-set...just 10 sec. to clip it in, and no adjustment problems. i got the s/c on the jarbridge head and foot adj. completely slack, so it wont have any compression factor on the newriver which seals the head and foot ends like usual.

    maybe brandon will resurrect the original yeti CS again....??

    It will still work great on both hammocks without the Triangles. They just help to take some of the fiddle factor...and there is very little of it to start with...and allow for a little more customization of the fit.

    shifting was the problem i had with the jarbridge....and one reason i use the newriver more ( except for >70°F ) ...i dreamed up a lot of different suspension methods, and they work, but IMO thats the big drawback of a partial length uq...

    check out my albums if you want , for some of the suspensions i came up with...


    one new one i have is adding a double s/c to the right foot side, and one to the left head side.
    but still can't get away from the big feet on the shockcord syndrome with the jarbridge...

    well it arrived this afternoon, and hoping to get a hang with it tonight. Looks very well made, and from a rough guesss, should cover shoulders down to mid calf on me. I will check out your albums after I try this bad boy out
