Once again, saving up is paying off. I saved my extra fundage for a few weeks, worked a few extra hours and finally ordered my Speer Top Blanket III. Yay for me! One small catch though. When I tried out a demo of it in Hot Springs back in April, I didn't like the hook and loop closure that it comes with. It kept coming undone and scratching my legs. So, I asked Ed to modify mine by simply sewing the footbox shut instead of using the hook and look tape. He said it wouldn't be a problem, so hopefully I'll have it some time next week. Another example of Ed's excellent customer service and listening to the folks who use and buy his gear. Got a hike coming up from Massie Gap to Damascus and would love to put it though its paces on the trail along with my new Caldera Keg.
