    I'm 6'5" and the Hammock Gear TQ's work well for me...I tell Adam & Jenny and they make it long enough for me.

    Same here. Even with the footbox cinched around my size 15 feet, the JRB long quilts are plenty long for me, and I am 6' 3" as well.

    6'4" here and love my long sized burrow from Hammock Gear. Great people to work with and I'm sure they could add length if you're concerned.

    I can sleep in any position in my blackbird and not have any issues with my length compacting the down... no cold spots due to pressure points.

    Highly recommend their gear. I have a TQ and UQ from them.

    Glad to hear everyone is finding something that fits them! I'm just 6'3", so usually end up ordering a long. Have a long Incubator 20F in queue!

    I'm 6'3", and have tq's from 3 dif makers, and they are long enough to tuck my head inside for cold or sun, no problem.

    Thanks everyone, this thread has been really helpful and hopefully it helps anyone searching for "tall"

    I went with the 20* Burrow tall, wide, no taper

    Just wanted to confirm that at 6'4 1/2" barefoot the "long" burrow is working out pretty good. I would say it comes up to just under my nose when I'm fully stretched out.
