    I've also got a couple of new suspension ideas that might make it into version 2.
    Probably a couple months away.
    Well, just shoot me a pm and i will give you my address to send a tester out to, i will put it through alot of use and provide alot of feedback .
    I will also not charge you anything for this service because i am a nice guy.
    ps- i am over 350lbs so i need the heavy duty version.....

    Brilliant Randy! Both the zipper design and the peak shelf are awesome!! The only thing I would want out of this new design is to leave the foot end as it was before. I don't think I would want to vent my feet in the winter, only the head end.


    It is REAL tempting... some real, real, nice, thoughtful innovation here!!!!

    I agree and that's where I think I'm going with version 2 of this design. Gonna lose the foot end vent and run the zippers clear to the end.

    This prototype leaves for a week long hike on the AT July 3rd.
    I've already got a few changes and adjustments in mind, but I want to wait until I see how well this one works.
