    Jarbridge

    well, the timing was perfect and my new jarbridge came today. was happy to go to the post and get it, even thought the customs man dinged me AGAIN, but ah well. SO , will be testing tonight, did a pre-sleep hang and it took less than 1 minute to get it hung and dialed in. Seems to fit from the shoulders down to almost my feet when I am splayed out, so that is very promising. Looks very well made, and feels like it weighs nothing at all. Size wise I was happy with how compressed I could get it, it is basically the same size as my 20* Burrow(left in the row, jarbridge 2nd in from left) It does not compress as small, but darn close. For my first dive into UQ's I feel it was a solid purchase. And ONE WEEK from shipping day to my door, pretty sweet. Got a nice little bonus package from Paul to celebrate the new web-site as well

    SO, a big thanks to Paul and everyone at Arrowhead for the nice piece of kit

    I love mine and the coverage (I'm 6'4") is very good. And you're right it is very easy to adjust. Enjoy!

    worked very well last night. I had no tarp set up as I was lazy, and the wind was howling, but my backside was nice and warm, protected by the jarbridge. Temps only about 35* F, but with wind chill it seemed cooler. Slept great, and warm

    You are going to like it. My only gripe is it doesnt pack down very small in the provided sack. I may try to use a compression sack to get it smaller.

    well, new Jarbridge plus new puppy = chewed shockcord and unhappy Barlutti. Last night woke up to hear the puppy chewing on my new UQ , needless to say it was a bad wake up . Apart from that, the quilt is great, keeps the backside warm even with a little wind chill. bush test next week...

    At least it was only the shock cord and not the UQ. Does the Jarbidge use a sliding suspension to adjust it front to back or is it a fixed line that you adjust the length to the position you want?
