Product Description

The JRB Family of Large Quilts are outdoor/indoor multiple use quilts filled with high quality goose down. Each includes a draw string on each end and a 21 inch mixed hook & loop (fastens to itself) foot box. At 85” x 61” they are huge yet weigh between 30 and 36 ounces, depending on the model. The Mt Rogers is a solid three season quilt, baffled to 2 inches and over stuffed to achieve 2.5 inches of loft. It packs small (8 inch diameter by 9 inches tall) and is a soft package that will mold around other items in your pack. The Mt Rogers comes with a 1.5 oz. large JRB compression/stuff sack. 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. Available Options:


  • Length: 85 inches (2.16 m)
  • Width: 61 inches (1.55 m)
  • Loft: 2.5 inches (6.4 cm)
  • Packs Into: 8 inches diameter by 9 inches tall
  • Weight: 31 ounces (0.88 kg)

    After reading the reviews I decided to try a quilt to see if I could sleep more comfortable. I am a ground dwelling side sleeper that moves around a lot. I found that I am able to sleep much better using this quilt. It has kept me warm and comfortable. It fits well in my pack and is lightweight. It is a little pricey but if you can get it on sale it’s worth it

    I bought this quilt in the 900FP in August of 2011. It still looks as new as the day I got it and has been through a LOT. My wife and I have used it for camping/backpacking trips, sleeping on the floor at friends, I used it on my bed for 3 months before we got married as my only quilt, and we used it on almost a daily basis over a 3 month trip across the country, then flying to Europe for 2 months while camping, and as our bedsheet in hostels and B&B’s. Best $362 we ever spent on bedding. I expect many more years of use out of it, and when it finally dies, I plan on buying another… hopefully in 900FP again.

    My wife an I are both 5’11” and about 160 pounds.

    My only recommendation is to wear a warm hat on cold nights, and to buy nice Air mattresses, we use 2 Exped SynMat ULs.

    No issues using this down to 30 degrees for us.

    Got it today. Solved the enigma of opening the box without a knife.

    Me: 5’9″, 220 lbs, 48″ chest, 17-1/2″ arms.
    Primary activities: motorcycle camping and hang gliding

    It will compress enough to fit in the top box of my motorcycle (in a separate dry bag — gotta keep the wet away from the dry) along with my three-season two-person tent, rain fly, and ground sheet (sans the tent poles). Advertised compressed size seems right.

    The quilt is olive drab and not the funky gumby green in the pics. (Perhaps dependent on material availablity?) Thank goodness. The bag is made with superior craftmanship and quality materials — obviously made by outdoors people for outdoors people. Can be used as an underquilt or an overquilt — it’s nice to have options since, while I prefer hammock camping, trees are not everywhere. My initial impression is that the quilt is very warm and will suffice for three season camping. I’m both chunky and muscly (chunk-o-muscly?), and I’ve had a lot of injuries; as a result, it’s hard for me to sleep like a mummy. Down doesn’t really provide insulation value when it’s compressed under you anyway, so a good sleeping mat may be needed when using this during the shoulder season and at elevation in order to protect you from the heat-sucking ground.

    Actual usable width is 58″ (measured by me) versus 62″ 62″ would’ve just worked for me using the square sleeping bag configuration; 58″ does not. (I may have to get the quilt wings.) To add to that, while the velcro is an ingenious idea and does allow for the option of venting at different points if using this as a bag, it is a little weak. If you do mixed martial arts in your sleep like I do, it will come undone. However, it is VERY nice to be able to make a foot box when you need one, and it suffices very well for that. The roominess of the foot box doesn’t bother me since I’m a hot sleeper. (Did I just put a pro in the con section?) Oh, and while I love my old lady, I won’t be sharing my quilt.
