So I'm out on my deck in my DangerBird72, swaddled in my new 20* Zeppelin, under my 3season GoLite top quilt, all toasty warm and delighting in a Great Horned Owl serenade! Only my nose is cold. I need a face quilt!
Thanks so much Paul, for making this fine quilt for me! I'm really enjoying it now that I can put it to work. It's a bit too warm for indoors, but just right for this first night of freezing Minnesota air.
It is 32 outside and 52 under the DB72 cover. No tarp as there's no breeze.
What a hoot!
I ordered both a 40 deg zeppelin and a 40 deg flight jacket at the end of last spring both have 2 oz of over stuffing. I'm rather cold nature'd thus the over stuffing. Last night was the first night since I've had them that got down to 32 deg so I went out to the back yard for a bit of a test run. I started with a neck gaiter and hood. Before long I was getting warm enough to sweat and had to take both of them off. I stayed toasty warm all night and couldn't even keep the pull cord of the flight jacket tight around my neck or I was too warm. I have no doubt this configuration will be good for me down into the lower 20's if I dress appropriately. Paul's ratings are for comfort not just survival like some of the bigger companies. Thanks for the great products Paul - keep up the great work!
Don't have the full set[yet]but have been quite confortable in the lower 30s under a 40deg. Flight Jacket and base layer.Paul does excellent work and has been a pleasure to do business with.
Got my WD 12 first of the week. Checked it out closely and was very impressed. All the stitching was first rate and straight. And all the seams were tight and well sealed. Very light and discovered very tough as well. Set it up in the yard last night and the squirrels dropped acorns and branches on it all night. No rips, tears or holes. Not even marks or scratches. Slept great under it, around 61degrees, well vented even when mostly closed up in storm mode. Will not hesitate to recommend UGQ to a friend. Top notch work Paul, thanks.
I have my IT hat on this morning, did a minor update on website late Monday night and had a few bugs with several links. I believe I have fixed them all and links should now be working.
Please let me know if anyone is still having issues.
Now back to my production hat...

Your quilts look real good Paul. Been looking to sort out a wide'ish UQ for my Clark Flex-180. Will be dropping you an email in a week or 2 once I get back home to confirm some dimensions. Thinking of a flight jacket and winter tarp as well. Look forward to doing business with you and thanks for the good work.
P.S: I think you deserve an individual section in the forum like the other vendors have, wish I found out about your website earlier!
