    I just got mine the other day. Great work, no bad seams, nice looking down distribution, the pertex is like silk. They have removable straps along the back so nothing to cut off for hammock use. I can side sleep in it and I am still covered.

    Received mine the other day.

    I'm a bit weirded out by the super high tech fabric. Like science fiction vanishingly light stuff. Holy cow.

    Yeah the Pertex is really something else. Crazy smooth texture as well, especially if you're used to the comparatively rough ripstop nylons.

    I see one person commented that an older version did get down to 30* fine, just wondering if anyone else had the same experience? I'm thinking about picking one up.

    Thanks!

    I also have the older version, which I believe was rated 20F.

    Ratings are always "survival", however if you are a warm sleeper, like I am, I've found the rating is for me comfortable. I've slept in my Golite quilt to below freezing and found it comfortable (caveat: I always wear a full wool base layer when using my quilt below ~40F). Being a quilt, your bottom insulation will play a large role in how warm it sleeps. I have a 0F UQ for when using my hammock and a NeoAir pad for ground sleeping.

    Anyone know how accurate the advertised weights are for the quilt?

    Thanks for the heads up on this deal. Just purchased. Deal was just too good to beat. This will work perfect for the majority of my camping in FL and GA.
