    Need an affordable top quilt.

    I looking for affordable quilt recommendations. I plan on using it in my tent and hammock. I'm a big guy and sleeping bags make me feel claustrophobic. I thought big agnes bags would do the job but I'm a side sleeper. So any ideas? I'm looking to purchase a quilt new or used not DIY oh and I live in Charleston south Carolina so our winters are pretty mild.

    I've been happy with my GoLite TQ. I originally got it for backpacking and it has worked well so far in hammocking.

    I realize Jeff has been involved with this forum since before it was posted, so in a way this doesn't count, but...I was the first one registered here after attroll!!! Which means, I actually BEAT Jeff to something having to do with camping!!!!

    I know, I know....simple people, simple pleasures...
    I like the price. Is it roomy enough for a big guy? I'm 6ft 280. Also do you know it's packed size?
