    When the temps drop, every Squirrell's gotta have a winter coat!

    Happycamper1 and Angrysparrow are the first to have a te-wa underquilt winter edition and im proud to announce that 1 week from now, starting October 15th i will be producing the "Winter Coat"

    specs:
    ~40" x 52"
    vertical, 3.5" mesh baffles overstuffed to 4" on differential cut
    with 12 ounces of 800+ down
    1.1 ripstop shells, calendared and DWR

    i feel it should take most users into the teens.

    I know you'll probably want to see pictures of quilt on the hammock but I ain't got those yet! Here are 2 to show loft. More to say later !

    those pics show the differential cut, it looks like about 5 inches!
    however when both shells are on your hammock they "become" the same general size. this results in a solid 3.5" of loft, or slightly more.

    Looks nice, but help me understand the 52" length. Why not full length for winter?

    Trying to get a grasp on this whole UQ thing.

    Because folks who don't suffer from peripheral vascular disease do quite well with a pad under their feet, even in the winter. If you are smart you carry a short pad for a sit pad and as a backup anyway, why not put it to use?

    I'm seriously considering ordering one of these.
    Anyone got some pics of it on a Blackbird?
    I've seen a couple of pics in the HF galleries . . . . I guess of the summer and 3-season Te-was.

    Anyone got a few up-close shots of the stitching?

    I don't have any pics of mine right now (forgot to carry camera when backpacking this weekend) but I'll go ahead and say that the Winter Te-Wa is a fabulously well made piece of gear. Mike clearly thought out all the details of construction, and it shows. Straight and strong seams, to say the least.

    I haven't had a chance to test it out in *cold* weather yet, but I have confidence now that I've used it.

    Mine is spot on 18oz + .7oz stuffsack, 12 oz of which is down. 3.5" baffles and pretty consistent 4" loft.

    I get the impression that Te-Wa has set out to underpromise and over-deliver. I'm having problems finding fault with that approach..
