decided to take down my response. I'm not going to justify asking a perfectly legitimate questions and showing the basis for asking it. DP, I've sent it to you, newton, if you want a copy just ask. Next time instead of calling me insulting, read my post thoroughly OR PM me, like you asked me to do, even though I was following the conversation that wasn't even initiated by me. Thanks

I just visited the site and would also like to know about the fill material. Was thinking this would be a nice alternative to higher priced items. Just need to know what I'm buying. Seems to be a hammock thing.
Bigfoot gets real mad when Bigfoot's wife makes "pot pie surprise" and it turns out Bigfoot doesn't LIKE surprises in Bigfoot's pot pie Bigfoot wanted tacos instead....
I agree with Slo 100%, as a customer I feel that I have every right to know what I am buying, and the secretive nature of what type of insulation being used is actually a turn off for me! The difference between insulation's in some cases is like night and day, and there is a reason for the many different types of insulation, if you were to read the thousands of pages (I skimmed over most) over at BPL talking about the differences between the insulations it would make your head spin!
It would be like saying we use nylon in our hammocks, but I'm not going to tell you what type/kind/etc.. of nylon we are using!
I am only saying this so hopefully other will see the frustration that we are feeling with this subject, as for the HF members that currently own the products I think thats great and the rave reviews and tests that you all have done is wonderful, and I fully stand behind our Cottage Gear makers and that is where I am trying to make sure my money goes when I want to buy a piece of gear! But you have to remember that this (at least for me) is the first and only time I have ever come across something like this, no other gear manufacturer holds this type of information from is consumer, and there is a reason for that!
Dp I am sure your products are fantastic, well made, (not so sure on UL) but I will say Light weight, and will be sought out from the HF members, I am not trying to be hurtful, down talking, bashing, insulting, or anything like that, I just hope that you take this all as constructive criticism and our thoughts and input on the subject!
