Lots of comments and answers to questions above:
Someone mentioned the logo:
Mark: Regarding the "non v" shape of the quilt footbox: I thought the same thing. I tried it, it worked for me and all our testers. I have one here I will send you to try if you will send it back. Let me know.
Quilt specs: The quilt has been EN rated (yes you can do that with quilts) at 28 degrees. It weighs 1 pound 7 ounces, has 11 ounces of 800 fill dridown, has a 20d nylon ripstop shell and costs $259.
There is a lot of talk here about this quilt, but the coolest item in the new SD line is not a quilt, its a bed. You can catch a glimpse if you go to sierradesigns.com and type "backcountry bed" in the search field. Since I know I will get asked the 30 degree version of that is a flat 2.0 pounds and costs $349. There is a 600 fill version at $249 that weighs more.
ALL SD tents in 2014 are new. There are no double wall tents and no traditional vestibules in the line. All are single/hybrid walls. Gear storage is external, but does not block the door and is accessible from inside and out. You can get in and out of all the tents through a single door, you can leave the door open in all but the worst weather due to a unique door that is more of a wall/door/vent/window. You can cook safely while you are in the tent (though I won't be able to promote that due to CPAI-84). There are two freestanding versions, but the coolest and most applicable to this crowd is the new Flashlight (mentioned above) which is 2 lbs 15oz minimum weight (trekking pole set up), 2 door, 2 awning, 2 gear closet and BIG! It's $359, but there is a $259 version that is exactly the same except for less expensive heavier materials. If we made it out of really light fabric, It could probably be 2lbs 5, but for now the lightest is 30d with PU coating and 40d floors, taped. Here is a pic:
Aaron: I make my own stuff too: its really the only way to get EXACTLY what you want when you are particular. It IS an advertisement! I LOVE this stuff!
