    Thumbs up

I thought it would be a little short, but I didnt really notice when using either a gathered end hammock or my ridgerunner. Overall, I think it'll do nicely for what I wanted it for which is a warm weather quilt.
    Thanks for the input, that is what I wanted was some first hand knowledge.

    The width would concern me a little. From the specs this thing is very wide. Perhaps wide enough to completely wrap around yourself. For comparison...

    The JRB Katadin quilt (meant for 2 people) has the following specs.
    Length: 85 inches
    Width: 61 inches
    Loft: 3.5 inches
    Packs Into: 8 inches diameter by 11 inches tall
    Weight: 36 ounces

    Yeah its nearly twice the weight but its rated to 0º I believe. Look at the size though. Compared to the Nemo quilt's specs I'd reckon you could get two friendly people under it on the ground anyway.
    The deal is far lower than anything else in its temp and weight range.

    Is temp rating for comfort or survivability?
    Intended use is warm weather, I will also get a 20° for colder temps.

    Sorry I tried to copy the image but can't convert it to black so it can be seen. Here is a link to the site- http://www.nemoequipment.com/product/?Siren+30F scroll to the bottom and look next to the spec list for the diagram.
    Thanks for the doing that, it helps, I am hoping it is a little cooler than 30° any way.

    Just got my siren.
    So far I have only tried it on the sofa but it fits great, the short foot box allows me to lay down forming a 4 with my legs just as many like to do in hammocks, I was concerned that some the TQ would have a longer foot box making the figure 4 hard to get into.
    It is raining for the next few days so I will have to wait to try it in my hammock, I plan to do a video review of it soon and will post the link.
