Lighter than a similarly rated sleeping bag. No squirming around to get in and out. Easy to vent for temperature control. Designed for use in moderate temperatures, the “Shenandoah” Summer Quilt can be used either as a top quilt (in a hammock or on the ground) or as a hammock under quilt (JRB Suspension System sold separately). This sew through, down quilt alternative to our standard baffled, down quilts is ideal for use when temperatures are not expected to be below 40-45°. For individuals over 5 feet 10 inches tall we offer a long version (86″ in length). Includes a 1.2 oz. JRB silnyl compression sack, and can be compressed to the size of a softball or small melon 7″x7″x5″.
Activ-dri down™ – Activ-dri™ is a hydrophobic down treatment that keeps the down drier, while having no adverse effects on loft, fill power, or warmth retention. Activ-dri down is still down insulation and should be protected from direct exposure to moisture. All types of insulation, whether down or synthetic, will degrade in insulation capability if wetted.
