    That'd be my way of thinking when I get to order mine!

    Just to let everyone know. In the very near future I will be using 900fp down for all of my products. I should be able to keep my prices the same for the time being. My new down comes in late next week so most orders from this point will have the 900 down.

    Makes those sale prices look even better don't it?

    hope you've got a good source for that stuff, from what i hear it's very seasonal which is why it's not used more. ed seems to be able to keep it year round though.

    Good call Brandon, It IS kinda like gold sometimes. I will just keep everyone updated on availability. Ed must have his own Goose farm!

    Not sure if it's been posted or not, but what does the Crowsnest compress/stuff/pack to?

    The Crowsnest stuff sack is approximately 12 x 6 x 6. When it is stuffed into its sack, the quilt still has plenty of wiggle room. I do not like sacks that require a person to work up a sweat to get their quilt in. As a matter of fact, the Ptarmigan, which has 4oz more insulation is stored in the same size sack. It just fits a little tighter. My theory is that it can get smaller when it is packed in the backpack....if it has to.

    Stormcrow old buddy, you'll be hearing from me tomorrow or Tuesday about one of those Crowsnests. I think It will be perfect for my new 3 season setup.
    Not the guy to ask for Directions.

    Talking My New Crowsnest

    Hey Stormcrow,

    I really like your site. I was so impressed with it that I ordered a crowsnest.
