    Enlightened Equipment/Massdrop Revelation Top Quilt Deal

    Massdrop is working with Enlightened Equipment on making a 20 degree top quilt for a pretty good deal.

    https://www.massdrop.com/buy/massdro...ode=guest_open

    $219 for a regular size top quilt compared to their regular priced top quilt at $270.

    Of course this deal is not the same exact quilt. there are a few cut backs to get to the price. 1) a little heavier fabric. 2) 800 vs 850 Down and 3) Produced in China. #3 worries me but they claim the same quality control is in place.

    Thoughts?

    I'm on the list. But I am a little iffy. 1500 people requested it. 580 quilts.

    Note: The Massdrop x Enlightened Equipment Revelation Quilt will launch Friday, October 13 at 6 a.m. PT. The price will start at $219.99 for the regular/regular option, and quantities will be limited to 580 units total. At checkout, you’ll have your choice of four sizes: regular/regular (base price), short/regular (- $5), regular/wide (+ $10), or wide/long (+ $20).

    Shipping

    All orders will be shipped by Massdrop.

    Estimated ship date is Dec 22, 2017 PT.

    After the drop ends, payment will be collected. To deliver the best value to the group the request will then be submitted to the vendor up front, making all sales final. Be sure to check the discussion page for updates.

    To me, it's basically EE's version of a budget quilt with a less than budget price. I like EE but nowadays I don't see the value in paying more to them vs UGQ or HG even in a Massdrop situation.

    People are up in arms because these are being made in China, as is all their "on the shelf" items

    To Clarify. The "On the shelf" Revelations (not the Texas support ones) are the only made in China products we sell. {Sewn in China, stuffed and Quality inspected in Winona, MN} This was simply to allow us to meet the high demand.

    The MassDrop quilts are also imported and that is what allows us to keep working with MassDrop. Without this manufacturer we would not be able to continue our relationship with MassDrop as we just can't meet their demand.

    This is what I dislike about Massdrop. It takes too long to ship stuff.
