    Quilts for kids (feeler post)

    Top quilts, bottom quilts, whatever. I'm looking for something quality that will keep the little monsters from gettin chilly. I am set, and have some redundancy in my gear, but it would be nice to be able to lower their packweights as well. So anybody got partial quilts they aren't using? Functional DIY is welcome

    PS my 9 y.o. is 4'11 and about 83 lbs, the 7 y.o appreciably less on both fronts. Thanks!

    The jarbidge would be a great quilts for the little ones. They are cheap synthetic and warm. I LOVE mine, I am 5'10" ish and it is about a foot short of being head to heel on me. When my son used it this summer on a BWCA trip, he is 10 years old, he didn't wiggle his way out of it once. He just used a sleeping bag i found at goodwill. Hope that helps.
