    50 Degree burrow with sewn footbox

    Okay folks I know it is late in the season to be talking about a 50 degree top quilt, but I am just impressed with this top quilt. I absolutely hate feeling a gathered edge at my feet, so I use sewn foot box. However I made a summer sewn through with no snaps or drawstrings. This turned out to be quite an irritation. The solution was hammockgear.com's sewn foot box on a sewn through burrow. This may not seem like a feat, however being an experienced sewer, believe me it is difficult. So here are some pics next to a winter for comparison.

    Poof has used that same TQ

    on our last 2 trips---that was 38 degrees on Mt. Sterling, 34 degrees on our coldest night on the C/O. It's a summer quilt for me but some can really push the limits. She did augment with camp clothes though.

    I am confident with a thick underquilt, I could put this in the thirties easily.
