Hey Mike,

I'm super keen to buy one of your -2 degree quilts when you start making them again! Please PM me when you're ready.

G'day everyone,

I thought I'd post a quick review (short term - 10 nights) after a few trips in various conditions since I received my UCM wide/long/-8c/15d outer/10d inner quilt in Feb. In short the workmanship is top notch and it's been fantastic so far. I believe that for the price, it's unbeatable.

- My quilt clocked in at 767g which for me is perfectly reasonable for the stats.
- I've been warm as toast down to around freezing in various combinations of t shirt/thermals/light fleece/buff. I'm confident that it'll perform in SW Tasmania when I'm there in May.
- I'm a 6'3, skinny as hell cold-sleeper, side-sleeper, and tosser-turner. The wide version has ample space for me which is important because I like the extra space for my bent knees when side sleeping. The long-version length is perfect, and offers more than enough room to tuck in under my neck and up the back of my head. You can see the length in comparison to a standard length thermarest xlite in the pictures below.

Hi Mike! I would love to order one of your quilts (-8c, with zip footbox), plus a custom hood/hat/beanie if you are still making those. I am hoping to take it to the Larapinta trail in July, so please send me a message if you have returned from your hiatus. The quilts sound fantastic!

Hi Mike,
I’ve done loads of research and you gear looks amazing. I’ve got a trip to NZ booked Late August and need a much warmer quilt. Guessing the wait list is quite significant these days. Are you still taking orders? Would you mind adding me too? What kind of wait time are we looking at?
Cheers

Hi Mike, is there any chance of an update on what we can expect as far as wait times, or just to let us know if you are still in operation. Not trying to be pushy, but it would help us make a decision if we have a trip coming up and now that winter is here. We wait with interest. Many thanks.
