After an 11 month teaser I decided to roll out our new quilt - The Dragons Breath! I was originally going to roll this out last year on Black Friday, but my health issues put that on the back burner. I have decided it's finally time.

The Dragons Breath is a completely new idea in how to regulate warmth in a topquilt. We took the diamond baffles that we have been using for the past 3 years on our Carolina Reaper underquilt (as well as the Ridge Reaper) and made that the baffle system for the Dragons Breath. Each diamond creates a "micro pocket" of warmth that can be shifted vertically anywhere in the quilt, while holding the down in place once adjusted. Cold feet? No problem, just shift the insulation to the lower diamonds. Colder in the torso or upper body? You get the idea.

I rolled out the 20 today, with the rest of the line coming in the next day or so. Weights are comparable with the Ghost Pepper quilts, but I will be adding more accurate weights in the days to come.

As you all know we don't do sales, but as an introductory deal I will be giving 10% off the Dragons Breath for the next 2 weeks. Just use the code DB10 at checkout and take advantage of this introductory deal.

Looks premium! Got any pics of the sewn footbox version yet? Curious what the back of that would look like.

I will most likely have pics of the insulated footbox next week.

I had a Ghost Pepper in my cart Friday that I din't pull the trigger on for some reason. Guess this was why.

Well.....the working name was much different and more appropriate, (Dragons Breath is a pepper btw). After teasing with this quilt on Instagram and Facebook last September I was going to roll this out last Black Friday, but then I had the heart attack. Shortly thereafter another vendor rolled out a TQ with our working name. If you look at the design I'm sure you can figure it out ;) . Anyway, what's in a name, right :lol:

Yeah, but that one isn't a pepper. I like Dragon's Breath.

Got mine in. Have to wait a couple more months for it to be cold enough for me to use a 20 degree quilt, but below are the specs and some pictures. I don't normally pack my quilts this way, but I put it in a medium Zpacks bag to show the size. Incredible quality. I have quilts from multiple vendors and will say that my Loco Libre quilts are by far my favorites. I could have saved some weight if I had gone with a taper and without the insulated footbox, but I like room to move my legs around and don't want my feet getting cold. Can't wait to get it out.
