Everything from Jacks-R-Better is well made and they stand behind their products

I have their Nest, Mt Washington, 11-10 tarp, stuff sacks, pack cover, etc. never a problem with product or service.

LOL... Y'all just ain't right, but thanks for the laugh!!!


On topic... Rock and I both use the JRB No Sniveler... let me rephrase that, after I took his he decided I needed one of my very own so he could have his back. :wink: The JRB guys are awesome!!!! I would recommend their quilts any day for sure.

I've used a borrowed JRB underquilt one time on a group hike out at Red River Gorge in Kentucky and liked it pretty well. It kept me warm down to the mid 20's with a sleeping bag on top and a CCF pad between me and the UQ. Good stuff, well made, quality gear. :beer:

FF56, et al,

FYI...

Just keep all the good boys and girls posted:

JRB recently posted a Holiday Special on all three of the wearable Sniveller style quilts.

$60, $70 and even $75 off....

It only runs 3-8 December...In fact, it will cut off at noon or so on the 8th....

This is almost twice as huge as the tradition Trail Days sale.

FF56, this makes the most popular No Sniveller less cost than a Hudson river... Bonus time.

I bought a Nest second-hand and its been great! Ive tried to get JRB to help out with a conference and they did everything they could to help out, sent us some coupons to give away even! They were very prompt with returning calls and stayed in constant contact! Thanks JRB!

Well the quilt got here today....first off...i didn't think there was anything in the box...there is no weight to it at all ...it's like it's not there....the construction is like everyone said top notch....and lofts with hardly no work needed...over all very happy i got one...the only thing is i wish it was a foot longer...but over all very good product.

i think come the spring i will get another one i think i'll get the larger model...so i will have a full set....oh yeah and the weather shield ...
i think it's safe to say i'm sold on JRB products :adore:

the true test will come next month when i go on a winter hike...will use the quilt on top of a 40 deg bag i have and a blue wally world pad and a Z rest under me....should keep me warm around 20-30 degs
i will keep everyone posted ...and i will do a review on yutube of my quilt..
