    Buys Top Quilt - HG, JRB, or WB, other?

    So I just purchased a Warbonnet XLC. Planning to purchase the matching 3 season Wooki UQ. Trying to decide on a TQ. Right now I am looking at the 3 season WB Mamba XL ($305), the Hammock Gear Burrow 20 Long ($279), and Jack R Better. I think I like the Burrow since there is no hole in the bottom of the foot box. Any experience and advice is appreciated. Thank you.

    Enigma, by Enlightened Equipment.

    They just updated the footbox and, as an owner of EE quilts, I can say they are great.

    I personally use their TQ's with the drawcord footbox, but the other design elements are the same. I like their baffle design to prevent down "shift" - that is what occurs as you toss 'n turn and gravity pulls down towards the sides of the quilt, rather than keeping it where you want it. This can be limited in other designs as well if the chambers are narrow and stuffed well enough

    Purchased the HG 20 Burrow - (Box opening Video on my Channel below if interested) - with a sewn footbox and I have no complaints. Feels soft against the skin, cinches around the neck nicely, and carries in the pack extremely well. I also have an UGQ 50 Flight Jacket that is also excellent workmanship. I just prefer Ohio over Michigan....lol. Jacks R Better puts out quality material as well. Comes down to personal choice and who you want to support. I originally thought about keeping it all Warbonnet but the weight of the Mamba, if I recall, was not as low as the HG. Also, check for choice of Down - 700, 750, 800, 850 - DRW as well.

    Thanks for the input. I actually used to live about 3 blocks from where EE now operates in Winona, MN.

    Don't forget about the LocoLibre line of quilts as well. The chevron baffling is ingenuous and holds the down in place and makes for a beautiful quilt.

    So many good cottage vendors. UGQ is another one, not to create more confusion.

    I second MAMW, I have one of jared's Marcy 20s and adore the thing.
    The shock cord I thought initially was a cool feature that I'd never use but I shift to side sleeping a lot and found it super useful
