    I need help choosing a vendor

    I'm positive that whomever I choose I will be more than happy. It still doesn't help the decision making process. So I'm asking for your input. Im looking to get 2 quilts, light weight sewn threw preferred for weight. Something similar to Jacks r better shenandoah, for top and underquilts. for the better half and I to use as underquilts, she is a fair weather packer. Or I can use both on solo trips. Or another vendor to make something similar? Wilderness logics gets high praises and i like the corkscrew design, just seen a quilt on here by oxgear. Who else makes custom gear with more than kelly green color options? thanks in advance for for any input, especially if you have similar gear.

    You should check out Underground Quilts. They make quality gear and have lots of color options.

    Paul and Missy (Underground Quilts) are also in Michigan. You might be able to see them in person (ask questions and purchase from them directly) if you're close enough. I met Paul when he came down to FH3. Really helpful in answering questions and bouncing ideas off of.

    I have items from Hammock Gear and Underground Quilts. Fit, finish and function is fantastic. I may end up with more items from more cottage vendors, but these two will certainly be in the decision mix for me.
    Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the strength to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    The Jacks usually have an olive green they offer which i like very much and they have a sale on right now.

    Also I emailed hammock gear about 2 or 3 weeks ago cause they seem to have the lightest option but no response. Wilderness logics seem to be more affordable vs underground.

    I do not see where you can go wrong with any of the vendors here. They all make great gear.
    We are the crazy people.

    Most physical hike: Grandfather Mountain, NC. Aug 13.

    I don't need to make my pack lighter. I need to make my a_ _ lighter.
