    Rev X or Burrow TQ ?

    I'm a newbie and am needing a good 20* TQ ......... I like the HG and the EE, but am open to any suggestions. Any ideas ?

    Thanks in advance ........

    Both are excellent TQs. I own gear from both companies.

    I have a 0 degree RevX and a 40 degree Rev X on order.

    I think you would be happy with either - both vendors produce great products. I have a 20* Rev X with a 20% overstuff and used it down to 5* last winter at the NJ Winter Hang and was warm. Love it!
    see you on the trail,

    I looked REAL close at the Rev X and Burrow when getting a top quilt recently. Ultimately, I wanted a sewn footbox (I need to push its lower limits more than have the venting options), standard length and extra-wide width as I toss/turn a lot. I ended up going with a Burrow because I have HammockGear UQs that I really like and HammockGear had a quilt that was configured exactly the way I wanted, without having to request something custom by anyone (the Rev X didn't have a standard option for a sewn footbox).

    If you want a sewn footbox, I'd recommend HammockGear. If you want a footbox that cinches shut, I'd probably recommend the Rev X.

    I can only speak for rev x. I love it. Light, warm very durable and most of all, couldn't ask for better customer service.!

    Got to use my new RevX this weekend at the Smoked Butt Hang. Worked very nicely.

    Thanks guys for the input ...... Very helpful. I'm going to go with the Rev X 20* !! Has anyone gotten their TQ quicker than the 3-4 weeks it states on the EE website ?
