Lighter than a similarly rated sleeping bag. No squirming around to get in and out. Easy to vent for temperature control. It was designed with the ground sleeper in mind. It is wider (55 inches) at the shoulders and down through the hips to eliminate drafts, and then tapers to 45 inches at the foot end; the foot box has been lengthened for better tuck control; and six lacing tabs have been added to the sides to secure the quilt around a pad if desired. Form the foot box and use as a top quilt or wear as a serape using the non-snagging, mixed hook & loop re-sealable head hole. For individuals over 5 feet 10 inches tall we offer a long version (86″ in length) of the High Sierra Sniveller specifically for use as a top quilt.
Footbox: The footbox is formed with a drawcord, cord-locks and double-sided Kam Snaps. This allows the quilt to be left as a blanket for easy venting, a foot-box to be formed, or multiple quilts to be stacked in colder temperatures.
Over-stuff: 25% over-stuff included!
All Jacks ‘R’ Better quilts are over stuffed by at least 25%. We do not recommend additional over stuffing. If you think you need additional over-stuff consider purchasing the next warmer quilt model.
Compression Sack: A lot of folks no longer use compressions sacks and instead keep their quilts dry inside a lawn contractor bag or trash compactor liner. We do not want anyone to have to pay for something they do not want so now we offer them separately. For 0 degree quilts we recommend the large size compression 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.
