    APEX Climashield!

    I have just gotten off the phone working out an order for a very limited quantity of APEX Climashield. It will arrive in a little over a week but knowing that the demand is high and the quantity limited I am offering it in one quilt starting right now. The Jarbridge will be upgraded to the only underquilt on the market made from APEX.

    APEX is lighter, warmer, and more compressible than any other Climashiled available on the market. We will be offering it in all the current colors that we have available in stock. They will begin shipping within 2-3 days of the insulation getting to us(about 2 weeks from now). Due to the limited nature of APEX I will only be able to produce a few quilts from the little bit we are getting.

    The Jarbridge made from APEX will be sized at approximately 42"x58" will weigh in at around a pound and will be warm to at least 30 degrees. I picked it as the quilt for APEX as it offers the best size to take advantage of the limited amount of APEX that we can get. Along with APEX's great warmth to weight ratio the Jarbridge can take best advantage of the insulation's strong points.

    I am only offering APEX in the one model of quilt, and I am not offering APEX by the yard----in the future, should it become more available other quilts will be available and we will try to offer yardage for the DIY folks as long as a stable supply is available.

    The upgraded Jarbridge is on the site available for orders now, but when we hit the magic number of quilts sold with APEX it will be marked out of stock, so act quick, this is a limited time option to get the best synthetic insulation available.

    I would assume at somepoint they will have it available. What I am told is that North Face is eating up 99.9% of the supply being made so.......no telling when more options will become available. Could be weeks or years. But I got my hands on a little

    I was able to scrounge together enough APEX for 2 more Jarbridge quilts. Once they are sold that is it for APEX for a while it looks like. Just 2!
