  • Down –Nikwax Hydrophobic-Down™ The safe, high-performance, PFC-free, water-resistant down fill for outdoor clothing and gear. As a result, it keeps users warmer and drier in a wider range of conditions.
  • Over-stuff: All Jacks ‘R’ Better quilts are optimized with a 25% over-stuff to reduce downshifting and enable the quilt to maintain its rating if the down loses loft between cleanings or due to dampness. We do not recommend any additional over stuffing.
  • Long Term Storage: All Jacks R Better Quilts come in a zippered storage bag that does not compress the quilt and allows airflow. Consequently making it perfect for long-term quilt storage.
  • Packing: We recommend using a lawn contractor bag or trash compactor liner while backpacking to keep your quilt dry while allowing it to expand or compress to evenly fill available space in your backpack.  We offer compression sacks separately for individuals looking to pack their quilt into the smallest space possible.
  • Hammock Fit – The Shenandoah summer hammock quilt works as an underquilt on all gathered-end and bridge hammocks. Including; ENO Hammocks, Hennessy Hammocks, Warbonnet Hammocks, Dutchware Chameleon, as well as most other brands and DIY hammocks.

    I bought the Shenandoah to use as a 3 season top quilt. I used it in Early June on a trip to Arkansas and it kept me warm but not hot when the temp was around 50 F. I vented the bottom and it was awesome. It’s very light and packs down small. Great quilt for a great price.

    I purchased this quilt at the Trail Days in Damascus VA. Absolutely awesome quilt! I used it for the first time a week or two back when the temps dropped down into the 40’s. I was toasty warm and comfortable all night. High quality, great price. Good stuff. Thanks JRB!

    Great top or under quilt! So far I tested it combined with the Prolight Plus pad from thermarest and I was toasty warm at 10°C in boxers and even worked for winter camping when combined with my merino wool shirt, medium down jacket, longjons and nylon pants.
    Only my feet were cold, but so were all my friends’ when it dropped to -20°C during the night.
    I sleep on my back or my side with the top snaped behind my neck, the draw cord quite tight and had no draft issues at all.
    A very versatile piece of gear, 3 seasons if combined with clothing at an unbeatable price.

    Cheers JRB!

    I picked up a blemished Shenandoah for a heck of a price and use it as an underquilt on my Hennessey. It’s been excellent down to 30 F. I would totally buy another quilt from them.

    I hike/fish/hammock camp 2-4 days every week, all year long. I have two Shenandoah quilts. In temps above 45F, I take only one as a top quilt. Below 45 degrees, I bring the other as an underquilt. Adding a fleece blanket, this setup takes me comfortably into the ‘teens. They are very light, surprisingly warm, and the black interior gets rid of the night’s body moisture when hung over the ridgeline in the sun. I research all my gear quite carefully, and after three years of intensive use, I can’t recommend this product enough.

    I love my Shenandoah. I don’t bother even considering my bigger quilts unless the forecast is below 32deg at night. I’ve generally been too warm and had to vent alot, even in the 40’s with this. Since it doubles as an UQ, I can use it in warmer weather as an UQ and a bag liner or such as a TQ. Great, flexible piece of gear.

    I’ve only had this for a few weeks but I did get a few nights under it and I am a quilt convert. I live in Florida so we don’t get too many cold nights but I was out recently and the temperature got down to 40. I had underwear and a pair of socks on and was warm all night. I made the foot box but I left about 2-3 inch hole open because my feet were too warm. I will definitely be adding another quilt in the future, maybe a 20 degree or 10 for hiking up north.

    Game changer! super lightweight and packable. I use one as top-quilt and one as a bottom-quilt in my hammock and pack’em all together in the same compression bag. Makes life simple. Be sure to cinch up those ends on the bottom-quilt, though … being so light weight even a little gap on the ends will let in the breeze and freeze your butt!

    Couldn’t be more satisfied. Excellent products, very well made, and very warm!
