    Looking to try a quilt instead of usual sleeping bag - I'm 6ft2 on an Xtherm Max Large so something in Apex 167 and long/wide would be ideal.

    You could ask Liteway equivalent for a custom length. Good construction and multi use.

    Another vote for Valley and Peak. Although I have only managed a garden camp with mine and no real world testing, the build is superb as is the customer service.

    Thank you all, I had not heard of Valley and Peak or Liteway Equipment, only Gram Xpert and AsTucas. Very useful.

    Hopefully I can buy second hand (trying to be more environmentally friendly) but these don't seem to come up very often second hand...

    Oh nice, last time I looked at Valley & Peak they didn't have weights (or I missed them somehow)..... much better now they have all the specs clearly laid out!

    (edit) oh, no, I take it back.... they still don't list the weights for regular width nor do they say what any of the lengths mean. oh well!

    I just emailed them. The quilt I have from them is a custom order and they replied to my mail within a few hours, gave me estimated weights, details about materials etc and when I ordered they gave an accurate lead time, the quilt arrived a few days before that was up.

    Ah cool... good to know... they've been very good when I bought little bits from them before... it's not that I actually need another bag/quilt anyway, but having all the details there for easy comparison would facilitate impulse purchasing. :happy:
