    I got a Nunatak Arc Specialist for ground dwelling, and it's almost perfect in the Speer, too, but an Arc Ghost would probably be wide enough when hanging.

    JRB Hudson River is my favorite. It is my only topquilt I have ever owned though.

    I have 2 down quilts that I made, summer & winter. After doing a whole lot of research on the internet, looking at different camping quilts that I could buy as well as some in the kit form, I decided to just make them so they fit me. I can't stand my feet being confined so my summer quilt is open all the way around but I did add cordlocks and cord at the foot end so I can cinch it tighter. With my winter one, I did sew the foot end closed and add more cord and cordlocks at the head end to cinch it tighter around my shoulders. As I use these quilts, if I have any types of issues, when I get home I do some more tweeking to my design. Lately I've been thinking of adding a layer of very thin silk material to the underside of my summer quilt. Because I use it in warmer weather, it feels clammy to my skin. I'd like to find some material like that used in the sleeping bag liners made of silk. And packing these quilts are a breeze, I just pack the hammock and my sleeping pad in my backpack then I stuff the quilt into the dead space between them. I did make a silnylon bag sized for each quilt incase I need it. One of these quilts is packed on every camping trip I've gone on since I made them. And I camp mim of once a month and usually at least every other weekend.

    As an underquilt, for ME: 11 degrees. Probably an Easy 30 for a normal person as an overquilt. for me, I'm thinking about -10 or lower. I got overheated with my RayWay OQ at 11 & I feel the NS is much warmer.

    Soon as I can afford a hudson river (as a UQ), I'm retiring the RayWay & moving the NS to the top.

    SO, next Mt Rogers hangout, I'll have a COMPLETE spare set up including: tarp, hammock, suspension & quilts. I"m not obsessive, I"m not obsessive, I"m not obsessive, I"m not obsessive!
    When you have a backpack on, no matter where you are, you’re home.

    rather then start a new thread; what would a good 20-30* overquilt be. i have a 40* DIY and the 0* i use this winter (no use fixing something not kaput)., but i am missing that mid-range. the arc ghost is 20*, i think the no snivler is also, but what is the speer's rating. any other ideas other then DIY would be great. it is kayak season ya know
