    Smile JRB Double Differential Cut U quilt

    SOLD $225 shipped to cont. U.S.
    This is a prototype that I won on Mount Rogers this year. It is double differential construction which means when used an an underquilt it will not compress the down. The inside dimensions are smaller than the outside dimensions so that no matter how you hang it it will not get too tight to cause compression of the down.
    This quilt weighs 25 ounces. Thats not quite as warm as any quilt they sell, but since it is a prototype there is no data on it on their site. It is beautiful and I am including a new JRB underquilt suspension system with it.
    I have also installed the underquilt modification offered by JRB for the better fitting foot end of the quilt. I will ship it stuffed.

    Also it appears that the new prototype is about 1 or 2 inches wider and 3 or 4 inches longer than the ORM. See other pictures in following post.

    This quilt weighs 35 ounces. Thats as warm as any quilt they sell, but since it is a prototype there is no data on it on their site. It is beautiful and I am including a new JRB underquilt suspension system with it.

    More pictures along with an Old Rag Mtn

    The new prototype is almost as thick as the ORM but the baffles are also differentially sewed. They made the baffles deeper at the center than on the edges. It appears they are tapered from 1 inch on the sides to 2 inches in the center. They said they did this to keep the down where it belongs.
    The baffles on the ORM are thicker throughout.
    The new prototype is about an inch or two wider and three or four inches longer than the Old Rag Mountain.
    The loft seems to be approx 3 inches but tyhe baffles are not the same as mentioned above.

    The one for sale is the one on the left on the first picture showing baffles are not as deep. They would be the L, Front, Rear, Right and Left again in the pictures.
