Now that I've finally got 2 new sewers in the shop, and our lead times are starting to head in the right direction, I've decided to try a project I've wanted to do all along. From the beginning I wanted LLG to be a place where affordable quilts could be had, and with some favorable pricing on 800 duck as well as Dutchware's Ion fabric, I've decided for a short time to roll out our Saver Series of quilts. The biggest difference between our discount line and other lines on the market is the ability to customize not only the length of the UQ by the inch, but also the ability to customize the length of the TQ to any length from 60" to 89" in 1" increments. Choose your thread color, add a draft collar, extra down, no problem.

Right now the lead on these quilts is short, but once we hit the point where it interferes with our other goals I will pull them from the market. Also, if the down market goes up then all bets are off, so get 'em while you can.

On the website, depends on what rating you get length width.

Sorry thought I "quoted" deer hunters response when I wrote that. He asked how much.

Does the saver series habanero have a lay direction like the regular habanero?

NO. In order to save some labor costs we're just offering straight baffles with the Savers

What is the weight of the 60" version? I think it's misprinted on the website. It says 29.8 ounces- which would make the 60" much heavier than the larger UQs.

Fixed.It's 19.8oz. I'm sure we'll find a typo or two

What length would you recommend for a full length UQ to cover you head to toe for someone who is 5'6" (66 inches)?

Directly from George's web site:
* - Quilt sizing. Quilt sizing is not an exact science as some folks like their quilts around their necks while others like to pull them over their heads. That being said the follow numbers are a general guide to follow:
70" -up to 5'6"
75" - up to 6'1"
80" - up to 6'3" ish

Thanks TrailSlug. I saw those recommendations, but they were for George's TQ. I'm looking for the measurements for an UQ.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but is the usual suggestion to add 3 inches to your height? Or maybe 5?

Ah sorry about that. I'm 5' 9" and the standard length bottom quilts cover me perfectly. I would recommend a 70" for a warmer rated quilt (ie 50 and up) and longer the colder the quilts rating to get the needed coverage but you can dial it in if you are a gram counter to be exactly the length you desire. One company rates their quilts short, normal, and long based on 73, 78", and 83 as an example.

For what it's worth, at 5'4" I'm good with a uq of 70", so add 2" and you should be ok.

Well, my 60" 20* changed to order processing today...so hopefully I will have something to add to this conversation in a week or so. I'm 5'9" and figured 60" would be sufficient to cover from shoulder to toe, or head to calf, whichever suits me most. We'll see!

Wow. I want one. Great concept, George.Ordered today! :cool: The Dark Olive Ion fabric should be a good color match for my Dutchware Chameleon (https://www.hammockforums.net/forum/showthread.php/134611-Chameleons-in-the-Wild-The-Picture-Thread?p=1759390&viewfull=1#post1759390) and my Operator Series Habanero (https://www.hammockforums.net/forum/showthread.php/137550-Loco-Libre-Gear-Operator-Series-Summer-Quilts) (which is currently processing!), so I should be all set for summer pretty soon. Thank you, George!

I can't wait to get some feed back and reviews on these quilts. I'd like to see some weight differences in the standard and wide widths.

The shipping notice for my 20* arrived Memorial Day! Ordered on the 21st - should be here for my weekend trip to tune and fiddle, although staying warm won't be an issue.

My LL SS 20* arrived today! The timing couldn't have been more perfect since I was getting my stuff together for a weekend camping trip when the postman arrived. Not 20* UQ type of weather here in the South, but it's the perfect time to get familiar with it. Also posting my first-ever unboxing video. Kind of a rushed job with quick edits and upload to Youtube as I was anxious to get going. So here it is!

That looks amazing! I just ordered mine in the same color configuration- except with black grosgrain. I love the Olive/Orange combo!

Does the saver option still exist for these quilts? I only see a few pre-existing sizes to choose from, not the inch increments.

Are you sure you're not looking at the Operator Series? They are two different styles. George already took down the pages for the Saver Series.

I thought that may be a case. I ordered an operator (hooray!), but liked the sound of the saver series since you could pick the exact length you need. Didn't realize it was a limited time dealio.. only saw it because I was creepin' around the forums last night. Thanks for the info.

I just got notice today that mine shipped. It should be here Friday, which is just in time to take it on my trip this weekend. I'll be sure to give a report when I get back.

I used it a couple of nights before it got too humid in Alabama...just to see how it was to sleep in. I found it easy to adjust and snug against my hammock. I wouldn't want it any shorter, though. At my height, something is going to have to be outside the quilt. It's a very nice product and I have no complaints. I have since moved to California where I expect it will work very well at the higher altitudes and lower humidity. I plan to use a footpad for my feet on cool, breezy night's.
