    Hemlock Mountain Outdoors

    https://hemlockmountainoutdoors.com/

    This company popped up in a Facebook ad a while ago and I just checked out their site. Their stuff looks pretty good on paper/screen, and allegedly handmade in Northeastern PA. Nothing overly interesting or unique, although they have an early access program for a synthetic UQ they're working on. If I hadn't just gotten a TrailWinder from SLD, I might get in on that.

    I'm not affiliated with them in any way, just sharing what I found.

    Eh, we reached saturation point a few years ago, since then people have just been reinventing the wheel.

    Hey if they can make a living doing what they love more power to them. It never hurts to have some competition.

    $90 to beta test a 40-50 degree underquilt still seems....high

    I was going to argue but went back and read about it first. I thought it was Down, it's not. I'm don't see a weight so not really sure of any benefit over a snugpak for $45.

    Kurt, look forward to your sucess. looking at the air light chair , maybe a tarp.

    Interesting as I wouldn't be far from them. If they had an interesting accessory I might give them a shot.

    We have a 40° synthetic UQ for our guest hammock. No need for anything colder or down really. I think I paid around $100 for it from Walhalla Hammocks. I need another one as we have two guest hammocks now. Although, I think our walhalla guest hammocks are more comfy than my XLC! Slept in our new guest hammock last night with the Wooki attached.

    A guy named Kurt Zitzelmin runs it. He's an avid hiker/backpacker in northern PA. He has a youtube channel that's pretty good. For trails in PA I often go to his channel to see if he's hiked it. Kurt Zitzelmin Outdoors if you have any interest. There's several videos showing his hammocks and tarps in use. Basically a DIYer who decided to start selling his designs.
