    Custom IX UQ & TQs, peak bags, ridgeline organizers, etc.

    Howdy folks.
    I'm not officially offering services as a retail "vendor". However, I am available for limited one-off, custom stuff.

    Here are the things that I can offer:
    -peak bags
    -ridgeline organizers
    -stuff sacks
    -hammock or tarp tubes
    -whoopie slings and soft shackles
    -IX Under Quilts
    -IX Top Quilts

    I made an IX Top Quilt for an HF member and he sent me this feedback:
    "I received the quilt LOOKS AWESOME."

    I have a "day job" that limits the time I can devote to making things and don't keep much stock on supplies. It is likely that I'll need to order materials to make most things. If you need something quickly, there are lots of reputable vendors here that are probably a better choice for you. I won't be the cheapest option either, as I can't buy supplies at huge volume discounts and don't have patterns for everything. I have more time invested in projects than the folks that have efficient mini-production lines set up.

    If I haven't scared you away yet and you want something customized for you, or just want to help underwrite my outdoor gear habit, then I'll be happy to talk about your project and see if we can work out a deal that makes sense for both of us. (a rather impressive run-on sentence, if I do say so myself)

    Adding Jerry Chairs to the list. Just made a pair for an HF member. Turned out more comfortable than I expected.
    Total weight was only 1.87 oz or 52.8 grams!

    By tarp tubes you mean the same as snakeskins? What would you make them out of? Thanks.

    My understanding is that Snake Skins are patented.
    Tarp tubes are a DIY version that were inspired by Snake Skins, but are not identical.

    I've made them out of mesh and nylon, but they could also be made from ripstop or silnylon.

    I have a pair of Jeff's skins/tubes/whatever and they're great. He found a ripstop mesh (I think that's what it was) and added the pockets. They're huge and can handle my Kelty 12 and my 11' DIY hammock. Personally, I find Jeff to be one of the

    awe shucks


    Thanks for the kind words, Syb. Glad you like the tubes.

    Not sure I'm really a vendor, though. I run a sales and marketing consultancy during the day and just make a few custom items for folks "on the side" to help underwrite/justify my gear obsession.

    Thanks for the fantastic work on your website, the information is comprehensive and useful. I am a big fan of IX, and have made several IX items. My 4 layer IX winter long coat is warm to below zero, and is made to sleep in, instead of extensive UQ and TQ items. But, you have given me some ideas to work on. Nice job!
