4 yrds
Oops, yeah I'd need 4yrds, 2yrds per side, thanks, I did order 4yrds of the M50. Do you need to add any stitching across the middle of the quilt to help hold the insulation in place.

Critical Mass
If your going with a McHale, and want to hump upwards of 70 lbs, then your probably going to need the beefier Critical Mass suspension system, which will run you a few extra $$$$ Good luck.
