    te-wa quilt improvements

    Greetings fellow hangers and hammock aficionados!
    te-wa brings good news and cheer for all those looking for a great underquilt with the best design and lowest weight for the warmth.. well, look no further because I have come up with a new way to make your hammock camping even better!

    I just completed my first underquilt made with diagonal baffles. This means that as you lay diagonally in your hammock, the baffles will follow the direction of your body for the greatest amount of possible loft. As you know, flat horizontal baffles which inhibit fullest loft are a no-no and vertical baffles that run along the length of your hammock are better, these diagonal baffles are the best* yet. Another first - like my end-channel bungee cords - for the demanding hanger in you.

    Keep in mind, that as of this writing, I am the first and only quilt maker to bring you a "diagonal" baffle pattern.

    Also, because some of us out there sleep "left handed" (which means your head is to the right, feet to the left) let me know if you lay this direction so i can make an UQ for your needs. Its basically the same idea, just a mirror image of a righty UQ.

    one of these days, () I'll get a website started to make this easier to order. Keep your fingers crossed that i dont crash the computer and launch nukes in the process...

    *the word "best" is highly subjective, so take it lightly

    Sounds really cool, id love to see some pictures,
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    I was always told that if there aren't pictures it didn't happen/doesn't exist.

    im working on a "test" website, w/ free domain and hosting blah blah...
    after that, i'll drop the adverts and the .webs name, and host with a pay site that will be clean and purty.
    but for now, is everyone ok with a site much like Slittlefields and Arrowheadequipment?
    (both use .webs)

    Te-Wa do you expect to get lower temps with the same amount of down you are currently useing in your vertical baffled quilts, if so, by apx how much?

    The web address isn't as important as the quality of the products. PICS PLEASE. We already know you are not a big company like The North Face or Marmot so trying to project the 'professional company' in the address is overboard and a waste of time. Go with what works and AHE and sclittlefield have stuff that works.

    ****... just when I was about to pull the trigger on another UQ, you have to mix it up like this. I agree that I'd like to get an idea of the temp ratings for the new quilt, as well as prices. I'd assume it would be the same price as the current vertical quilts since it's just a matter of switching the stitch direction... unless of course there ar other improvements (more down, etc).
