Nunatak Gear Back Country Blanket

Postby paula53 » Sat May 03, 2014 12:50 pm

Does anyone have any experience with this? How does it compare to a quilt? I am taking a hard look at this, as I need to replace my summertime sleeping bag. Any thoughts?

Here is a comprehensive review:

Are you also considering a quilt with the foot box as well? I do not have either of these, but the quilts have lots of devoted users out there!

Thank you Freestone for posting that. The review was very helpful. Yes, I am looking for a footbox with a drawstring closure. I am also looking at UGQ's also. I like the made in the USA aspect and the fact that I can drop over a pound in my pack for the summer season. At my age, almost 60, dropping weight, and still getting a good nights sleep is a big plus.
