Golite hardly ever has their quilts in stock, especially the new one.
Thought you might like to know.

A sample of one ...... on 11/22/2013 19:37:52 MST Print View

I ordered a Z30 several weeks ago and immediately sent it back. My old Golite 40-degree 1-Season quilt put it to shame with regards to loft and consistency of fill.

An aberration, perhaps ...

I just picked one of these up and was very pleased with the initial impressions. I am not a warm sleeper by any stretch of the imagination, but was comfortable at about 20* with some help (bivy, heavy long johns, and light hooded down jacket). It also seems to be lofting well past the 2" of single-layer loft usually associated with the 30* temp rating.

Considering the price, it's probably worth at least giving it an in-person look.

That said, I certainly wouldn't discount the opinion in the above post, since that's not the first time I've heard these complaints about it- these could easily be reasonably inconsistent in their manufacturing.

Edit: Forgot to add that I only have one night of testing this quilt, and thus the above shouldn't be taken as any sort of long-term commentary on the Z30.
