    Jarbidge question

    I bought a couple of jarbidge UQs for my kids in all stealth brown. Is there a top and bottom to these underquilts? I don't really see any difference except perhaps the way the suspension is attached.

    No official top or bottom. They work the same either way.

    Love these underquilts. No top or bottom, synthetic, pretty much bomb proof. I am saving up for one myself.
    I solemnly swear that I am up to no good...

    I have 3 of them, 2 of the 3 season and 1 of the 1 season. Great UQ

    I always take them to group hangs in case someone wants to try a UQ or forgot some gear

    Do it!
    Got one for Christmas and used it in the house as a couch blanket on a really cold day and thought that it wasn't really doing much. Then a couple weeks ago tried it under the hammock on the porch on a windy, rainy, 40-42 degree afternoon and was AMAZED.
    I'd heard the "synth doesn't heat up as fast as down" and not having tried down, was worried, but BAM, almost instant heat coming back up. I'm 6'5" and love the neck to well below knees coverage. Dollar for dollar best thing you can get.

    Got One!

    I just ordered one for my WBBB. I have never owned an UQ before. The price was very reasonable and the shipping time was great. I even had a few questions before I purchased it and the customer service was great. When it arrived it was very nice, the one thing I noticed was the width of these quilts. I have never owned any of the others but, from the looks of them they dont seem as wide. What makes this nice is that there is a place to add shock cord to wrap it up around the sides of the hammock for extra warmth if needed. The quality was great Im looking forward to trying it out this weekend. So far I can say that Im very happy with it and the weight is next to nothing.

    I just tried my Jarbridge last might... Got down to 35 and I never got cold.

    I'm 6'3" & 300lbs and this fits from my neck to mid-calf & around my shoulders.. Plenty of room!

    The one thing I suggest is to really really tighten this up, as it slipped off my shoulder until I cranked down on it. Others had recommended it, & I thought I had it tight... But if it keeps slipping, jeep tightening!
