    Thumbs up Happy Polar Vortex!

    With the Arctic cold dipping waay down into the US, i'm sure plenty of you got out and tested some gear! I couldn't resist the negative temperatures either

    here is a short video of my set up last night (cut short; I slept with the GoPro battery, but not the camera itself...)



    Gear: Sheltowee 20 Hammock with a DIY 20 UQ stacked; DIY 20 TQ with a MontBell 40 stacked (all down); no tarp

    Clothing: merino wool top baselayer with hood; puffiest down jacket I had with hood; merino wool buff; Beard Beanie for head and face; loose cotton pj bottoms; loose Mountain Kaki cords; Sierra Designs down booties. (had to take the booties off early in the night, slept warm without socks!)

    Overall it was a great test. I've always had great success stacking insulation above and below. The wind was not an issue either, it rocked me to sleep . That is a great feature of my Sheltowee Hammocks too; high side walls and extra fabric at the head and foot ends knock down drafts and provide gear storage! Hold on to your wallets!! I'm in the beginning stages of a limited production run at the moment, and will have a few to sell soon!

    I know voivalin! and i hate to disappoint. Everything so far that I have made and tested are 'prototypes', gear that I, myself, have put together. (i HAVE gotten a lot better, but you can't fake 25+ years of sewing experience). I have been working lately with people locally who can produce a a QUALITY product that looks as good as it preforms.

    I have been close before with finding a reliable manufacturer who I can work closely with, but one reason or another, it didn't work out (several times over...)

    But, be sure that once these are available for purchase, every detail and every stitch will be quality. Thanks for your patience!!
