rated 1 of 5 stars Enlightened Equipment does it better with better customer service. Just no good reason to go with JRB when you have other companies out there who enjoy interacting with their customers and learning from them and their experiences. HUBRIS comes to mind. Maybe it's the result of so many years in the military for these guys. But this company will fall under as companies like EE back their product and actually enjoy their customers and take into consideration what they have to say. Design features are… Full review

Sierra Sniveller

rated 5 of 5 stars This quilt is lightweight, very compact, and ultra warm. If you are looking to cut weight and save space without compromise this is the quilt for you. I bought this quilt because I got claustrophobic being confined in a mummy bag. I began using my mummy bag as a quilt and realized how much wasted space and weight I was carrying this way.

Greylock 3

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Proven comes to mind when considering products from Jacks R Better, and the Greylock 3 demonstrates that to a tee.

If you hang a hammock in the wild or in your backyard in temps down to the 20s odds… Full review

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
