    Awsome products and service. I just got some of their new suspension lines for my boys to us in their hammocks. Plus some of those lighter caribeeners.

    I have a lot of good stuff from them.

    Excellent job guys!

    man, that`s great demonstration jeff! i hope you & the jacks are talking about new possibilitys<G>.
    last trail days (06) i talked to jack & jack about some of my ideas that were partly fuled by the no sniveler.
    that is to have the hole near the top, alowing you to bring the quilt around you in front to close like a jacket. this would also include two arm-holes designed very much like the neck-hole.
    my idea for the head/arm holes is like i`ve already described elsewhere... a slit W/ a short, insulated collar. this collar has a channel for a draw string on the outside, half way up the collar. the cord used is a light elastic cord w/ a micro cord lock.
    when this elastic cord is tightened, it gentaly snugs the insulated collar around your neck/arms with out that choking feel.
    when loosened, ...ventilation.
    when not in use, pull the cord through the micro cord locks to compleatly close off the holes.
    when sleeping in the cold, put your head through the head hole & lay your head on the flap beyond it. this greatly reduses hot/cold air exchange at the top of your sleep system, even when you roll. there again the head hole can be loose for venting or closed for heat retention.
    this type of collar is easy to make. i have one on the top cover of the insulated winter hammock i made last winter. works great!
    i`ve continued to think about & play around w/this concept, just haven`t made a proto-type yet. guess i better get busy, or jeff`s going to beat me to it<G>. ...tim
    don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!

    Just started a thread about the pants I prototyped like Bill F's REI pants.
