they also have sleeping bags and a quiltSep 7, 2010 at 10:11 am #1643645
what are the thoughts on this quilt? I'm looking to replace my generic synthetic mummy bag I have with some thing light and a better temp rating.
thanks!Sep 7, 2010 at 10:45 am #1643658
Steven, Check out the "Readers Review' on this site. The bag scores a 4.5 out of 5. For the price I see you can't go wrong….their price is cheap. It's a pretty good bag. I own one and I find it to be more around a 25 – 30 degree bag….not a 20. However, I will say I sleep very cold.Sep 7, 2010 at 10:47 am #1643659
The current 3-season quilt is a lot different than the one that has reviews on this site. I don't think anyone has tried the current model as it is quite a bit heavier.Sep 7, 2010 at 11:15 am #1643671
well, it's 5oz heavier than the old model, but apparently more close to the actual rated temp than the old model. But it's also $150, which is quite a good price, even if it weighs a few oz more than the older model, or what I see JrB has for similar quilts. Plus, I have some credit with them, making it a bit better of a deal.Sep 7, 2010 at 2:19 pm #1643724

i've used the old Ultra20 golite quilt for 2 years and love it. While the new one is 5 oz heavier than the old one almost 3 oz of that weight comes in more down (10.86 oz old, 13.5 oz new). at $150 that is an awesome dealSep 7, 2010 at 2:28 pm #1643733
I purchased, thanks for the info all!Sep 8, 2010 at 6:16 am #1643864
Evan, thanks for the invite to this. Just ordered my 3 season down quilt at a much better price that I have seen anywhere else. Appreciate the offer.Sep 8, 2010 at 12:51 pm #1643959
Well, the price convinced me to get one and try sleeping with a quilt. I figure that if it doesn't work for me, I can just put it up for sale here.
Any great tips for using a quilt? I am a side sleeper, 5'8", 160 lbs, so I don't think the girth should be a problem based on what I've read. I do tend to alternate between back and one side or the other when backpacking. I use a Thermarest 3/4 length pad, and mostly backpack in the Sierra Nevada.
Thanks for the lead on the good deal! (hey, "deal" is just "lead" spelled backwards…)Sep 8, 2010 at 2:54 pm #1643996
Evan, thanks for the heads up on this deal. I've wanted to try a quilt for some time but have been intimidated by the prices from Nunatak and others, especially to experiment. $159 is too good to pass up. Sorry I couldn't help you out by signing up using your link, I am already a clymb member.Sep 8, 2010 at 3:40 pm #1644008
Hey guys, I'm glad to see you getting such awesome steals on gear!

Could someone comment on the RS 3-Season Vario semi-rectangular-Reg for me?

The quilts are awesome. Its the only thing I have slept in over the last 3 years. The new ones are heavier but, like mentioned it just has more down in it.
I am a 'roll around' sleeper so I made an adjustment to mine; I cut off the straps on the top one completely and replaced the straps on the bottom one with bungie parachute cord so it flexes with me when I move instead of the permanent position the straps give you.Sep 9, 2010 at 3:50 pm #1644303
So do you just put the straps (or parachute cord, in Peter's case) under the sleep pad? When you roll around or over, does it pretty much stay in place? Maybe this will all become clear to me in practice, but right now I'm not sure exactly how this will work.Sep 10, 2010 at 6:54 am #1644457

Appreciate the original link Evan but really there's no need to post multiple reminders of how much time's left.
