    Arrowhead Equipment

    I'm looking at the Arrowhead New River UQ, are there any opinions on how well they work?

    I saw one mid-fall... looked great and worked for TriggerHappy to 28 degrees..

    I have a lost river (2/3rds length) it works well. They're synthetic, so not as light as an equivalent down UQ, but very well made...

    I've used one for a couple years and it has surpassed my expectations, below 30 and is comfortable up in the 60's, also bought a owyhee top quilt from another forum member @ a hang, the long version, (also long on the new river) it has excelled equally, in fact everything from Paul has been excellent. I also have a new HG 20* top and bottom quilts, but alas hasn't been cold enough as of yet to use. You won't be disappointed in New River. again in damp weather its not a problem, just hard to believe how warm it is. My 2 cents, jim

    i've got the jarbidge, and been comfy in the mid-high 20's so far. Great piece of gear, well made, great price and fabulous customer service from Paul over there.

    Also, they don't compress nearly as much as a down UQ.

    here is a discussion of the KAQ compression... http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=63453

    Be sure to check out the AHE section in the cottage vendor area of the forum.
