Quoth Backpacking Light's Doug Johnson for his Staff Picks of Favorite Gear 2011, on Tim's quilts for smaller people.
My custom EnLIGHTened baby and toddler bags were one of my Staff Picks back in 2009. Here we go again! As my kids have grown, this year we picked up a pair of larger Protege quilts from Tim Marshall - and these will last my kids for years. He made them for us in custom colors with rainbow for my daughter and bumblebee for my son. Tim even added a stinger to my son's bag- his favorite part! The craftsmanship is outstanding and the price is very reasonable. The bags use synthetic Climasheild APEX insulation, which can handle moisture, and at 12.3 ounces, they are far lighter than any other kid option on the market. The bags feature a foot drawcord for ventilation, a footbox zipper to create a blanket if needed, snaps all the way up, and no cords anywhere except the feet to ensure safety. These bags are brilliant - all parents take note!
