So then, 2 packages has arrived:
Packages opened (no sharp objects involved) and out of the package two very well done objects comes out.
First of all I must say that I donīt know much about down gear. I havenīt really watched other down gear up close except for my 20 yrs old winter sleeping bag.
BUT I must say that these items looks VERY good. VERY!
I have put the quilts out on the kitchen floor and I am watching them GROW. The loft is getting bigger and bigger as I wright these words.
I will not take any pictures of the quilts when they are on the floor, there are already nice pictures of ukhammocks quilts on HF. But I can TELL you about them instead!
They look really nice......
I have looked em through for any defects but the only small things I found was 3 threads that werenīt cut properly. The threads are about 5-6cm long and I canīt actually call it a defect. Itīs just those things that happen. As the threads are in the same dark color as the fabric they are very hard to detect.
Otherwise it seems like a very very nice job. I would never in my hole life be able to do something that got even close to this no matter how hard I tried.
I will try them out properly as soon as I get some time to actually sleep outside. Donīt know when, maybe Iīll get an oppurtunity saturday. But itīs ages until then, maybe Iīll give it a try during the week even though Iīll have to get up early to get to work. Iīll give it a thought anyway.
One small thing that bothers me about this quilts is that they didnīt come with a bag to put them in. I never gave it a thought when I ordered them so it was probably obvious that there wouldnīt be any bags but it never occured to me when I ordered them.
This is not a big problem since I have plenty of bags and are capable of doing some new if itīs necessary. But anyway? Well well, thatīs not a big deal, Iīll live through that!
What I need to learn about these downgear is to make the loft work properly. I realize that itīs up to me to move the down around in the channels to make it work properly. Since I never done anything like that I understand that I will have a period of learning how to use these quilts properly. A topquilt is probably easy since I have it on me and can SEE how it works but the underquilt probably needs more tweaking before I get it to work perfectly.
But isnīt the tweaking-thing what makes hammocking so wonderful?
Iīll be back with more pictures when I have set it all up.
Hopefully before saturday.
