    My 10 yr old daughter decided she wants to try a hammock at our TX fall hang in November, so I ordered a Jarbidge to use as her first UQ. I thought the same thing....a 3/4 UQ would be full length for her! She'll most likely be with me when we are car camping or on short trips, so the "pack down" size wasn't a primary factor in this decision.

    I have a HG 20 degree Phoenix that I have yet to try. It'll be interesting to see the difference between the down and synthetic UQs.

    I ordered the triangle thingies as they seemed a great idea for adjustments. I can't wait to get out and test the new gear and to see how my daughter handles the experience.

    Thanks for the info in this thread. Just ordered my New River-long with Apex Climasheild upgrade, triangles, and Bear mt pillow in M-90. Hoping to do some camping in my WBBB and weeknights in the backyard here in N Minn unstil the snow flys in another month or two.

    You'll be a happy hanger with your new purchase. What color did you end up with?

    Thx Dave
    I bought the olive quilt

    Now I gotta find a topquilt I like. Have used a "poorman's" TQ till now, 15* mummy down bag I cut the zipper out of. I'm a wide guy, and need the extra width of a real TQ. So am on the hunt.

    I was doing the same thing for a TQ. REI 20 down bag and the Wallyworld ozark trails down bag. Both have worked great and I've been pleased with the performance.....but, Christmas is coming early and I'm awaiting delivery on a down 20 degree TQ . Can't ever have too much extra gear in the closet.

    Thanks everyone for the feedback on the KAQ New River UQ. I've been thinking about this for a bit now and decided to get one. I opted for the long version in Olive. Thanks again !!!

    Just ordered the New River (long) with Apex upgrade in Olive myself and can hardly wait. It will be my first under quilt.
