    All I can say is lousy

    A while ago I ordered a summer crowsnest and burrow. It has been a bit of a wait but I'd been reassured that the wait was certainly worth it.

    Well this week they finally arrived to one very excited person. It was very well timed. I'd received my new WBBB the day before and my daughter had just got a new sleeping bag so a test hang was certainly on the cards for the weekend.

    My first impression of both quilts was very favorable. Great craftsmanship and attention to detail. For instance my daughters new sleeping bag, which I was happy with had quite a few loose threads, no big deal, the Hammockgear quilts however didn't have a loose thread in sight - a small thing maybe, but to me a sign of good attention to detail.



    Last night I had the test hang in the backyard. The weather however, all I can say is lousy, for testing quilts that is. I think the temp only got down to a min of about 18 (real degrees that is ). In just my Solomon Grundies I had to leave the TQ off for most of the night as it was just too hot with it on - a good sign I hope. I had the Crowsnest on and there certainly wasn't any sign of CBS. Still not a great night to test the performance of these two great products. I can't wait 'til it cools down to give them a real test.

    Oh and yes the wait really was worth it

    I was thrown there for a second. Trying to figure out the summer weight stuff taking you down to 18. Yep, that is celsius. 64 for us american types.

    Reminds me of the thread a few months ago entitled "Disappointed" which continued inside "...that I didn't order one sooner!"

    I also was just about to ask you to step outside in the ally. I'm a proud owner of a Crowsnest 3 season, a Winter Incubator, Winter Phoenix, and soon to be owner of a 3 season Burrow. I'm glad your a new proud owner. Anyone considering won't be dissapointed.

    Knowing Adam and having 6 of his quilts, I did'ent fall for (ok mabey a little) but was surprised by the title. His quilts are anything but lousy as you now know . Adam makes a great quilt and my summer set is the same color. I love that green. It's a great quilt will keep you nice and toasty. It really cool to see that Adam quilts are making it around the world. Hammock Gear international.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    Nice word-play. I love my 3/4 Ptarmigan and can't imagine anything wrong with his workmanship.
    I ride a recumbent.
    I like to HAM it up on the CW.
    I use Linux.
    I play go.
    Of course I sleep in a hammock!

    Rug.

    Hang On!
