Greylock 3

rated 5 of 5 stars As a lightweight bottom insulation this is great! I purchased it because it was the 3/4 length and it works well for the way I hammock sleep. It's a quality product made by guys you can speak to directly and who stand by their craftsmanship. I use this paired with an ENO DoubleNest hammock. For my height the length of the underquilt covers from neck/shoulders to below my knees. It is in my opinion very wide wrapping up nicely around me. Setup is very simple and intuitive once attached to the hammock… Full review

Greylock 3

rated 5 of 5 stars A high quality, 3/4-length, down UnderQuilt demonstrating exceptional craftsmanship. Exceeds similar products I have tested. The Greylock 3 supports my premise that America's cottage industry providers exceed most items that are mass-produced. Jacks 'R' Better (JRB) is a cottage industry manufacturer of hammocks and hammock products. Its reputation is well-known and, quite rightly, excellent. Having compared this product to the ENO Ember, JRB proves that many cottage industry companies provide better… Full review

No Sniveller Quilt

rated 5 of 5 stars I love my lightweight quilt. I have always used sleeping bags on my hiking and camping trips. A few years ago I started to lighten my load. I did quite a lot of research and bought the Jacks R Better "Rocky Mountain No Sniveller". I started out by testing it in the summer outside my house. I was sweating after a couple of hours and I didn't want to open up the quilt due to all the mosquitoes. I have since used it on many occasions and I really love it. It is very warm! When I sleep in a tent I can… Full review

No Sniveller Quilt

rated 5 of 5 stars To begin, the No Sniveller is a true multi-use piece of gear. Weighing in at only 21 ounces, it lofts to about 2.5 inches of 800 fill down insulation. It can be used as either a top quilt in a hammock or on the ground or as an under quilt in a hammock. The Velcro opening in the center also allows it to be worn as a cape around camp or even under rain gear for extra insulation. I purchased this piece of gear just as cooler weather was setting in for the year here in the southeastern US. After moving… Full review
