    Shopping for a partial length UQ, jarbrige or lost river?

    Paul isn't logged into skype so I figured I'd as you all what you think. From what i can tell it's a 3/4 vs 2/3rd length quilt, but beyond that they're pretty similar. I guess a deciding factor for me would be pack weight and compressed volume. A quick search didn't show much as far as compressed size to compare the two. Any input would be appreciated on the topic.

    FYI: my budget for an UQ is approx $100, give or take, and it has to be synthetic. If i can get a smaller compressed volume and pack weight i might move up on the price a little, it just depends.

    The Jarbidge will pack just a little smaller. Just a little as we send the same stuff sack for both of them. Width of the Lost would be it's main advantage why to go with it over the Jar. Other wise they are similar for pack size and overall specs.

    I plug the Jarbridge when I can, as it is the workhorse of my collection in warmer seasons. But it is hard for me to top or add to anything Paul says.

    Paul is stalking me again, everybody! JK....thanks for the quick reply. I'll submit my order for the jarbidge here in a bit then. My whoopies and bishop bag are holding up quite well so far, I'm glad I got 'em from ya. Before too long I'll have a complete AHE 3 seasons setup. I'll send you the address you can mail my advertising salary to later.

    Just drove back last night from the cabin for a wedding in McCall on saturday. It sure was smoky up there. You guys are trying to compete with California for summer wild fires this year i guess! Hope all is well.
