    Some burrow questions

    I'm wondering if anyone can help me out on what fabric and colors are possible with the burrow. I've emailed and called and I haven't been able to get in touch.

    I really like the material that is on the Western Mountaineering bags, specifically the bright red of the "Apache" bag.

    Does anyone know if this material or something like it is available to be used on a Burrow? Also in bright red?

    Thanks for any info.

    It isn't standard or in their configuration options. BUT, they'll do just about anything custom. If you have a particular fabric in mind, you can ask them how many yards they'll need for your particular piece and you can then order and ship something directly to them (you could probably send them a link to make sure it met their specifications of being down-proof, etc.).

    That's what they said when I asked about a custom M50 fabric version. I decided to go with a standard one due to cost, but I assume the process is still the same.

    How long ago did you email/call? They're pretty busy, but are usually responsive. They replied to my custom work request for details within a few days.

    My Incubator and Burrow are standard black/green but when I slip inside I have Technicolor dreams.

    As Breyman said, they are still pretty busy. I would try and give them another call, seems to be the easiest way to get hold of them.....RR

    Hmmmm, my Burrow, Incubator and Phoenix are all camo on the outside.





    Of course, these were made from a limited supply of material, I think. I know that last year, I got my Phoenix, and they had to check and see if they had any of the camo left.......RR

    When talking to Adam in the past, he purchases ripstop in bulk with good DWR. He has stopped ordering some colors in the past as the DWR wasn't up to snuff. However, if you want to purchase something (Momentum or some other down proof fabric), he will make you what you want.

    One of the problems is that not all fabrics are available to all vendors. For example, Gore will only work with certain makers as they don't want their reputation to degrade. I don't recall if Pertex was harder to come by or not.

    As long as they keep me warm, I'm not worried about colour. It's dark out anyways when they're really needed the most so nobody sees the colour, just order!!
