    Wiggys bottom insulation

    I just ordered a bottom insulation system from wiggys. If it is anything like my sleeping bag I have from there I am sure I will be pleased. I can't call it an underquilt since he doesn't use quilting but I'm hopeful it will keep me nice and warm. Will report with pics when it comes in.

    Looking forward to that report. I am well familiar with Wiggy, but not this product.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    I checked the Wiggy's web site and could find nothing like that... got a link?

    He does not have them listed on his site. I had to call to place the order. I will post specs when I receive it.

    He uses the Lamilite insulation just like his sleeping bags. And the bags are AWESOME!

    There are some other threads here about Wiggys. One of the cottage quilt makers sent him a design, and in true Wiggys fashion, he thought that he knew better and sent back a prototype that looked nothing like the design. That deal fell thru, and now Wiggy makes a flat, shaped UQ from his Lamilite insulation...which is pretty awesome. He claims Lamillite can can compressed forever and not lose its loft, which is why they're sold vacuum-packed in aviator's survival kits to be stored that way until needed.

    Dude's very confident of his products and not shy about telling you. Quality of his bags stand up to it in my experience, so the confidence seems to be well placed.

    Just Jeff,

    as you seem to know much about the industry you may be able to answer my question: Is the Wiggy's insulation system "evolved" from the old Olam bags from 20 or 30 years ago? I used to sell them when I was in retailing.

    Wiggy's is the Kifaru of sleeping bags...

    That will mean different things to different people (and probably nothing to lots of people)

    Wiggy's

    I have been using Wiggy's gear for a while. I feel it is the best investment I have made in insulated gear, hands down! I to ordered an insulating blanket for my hammock at the end of last week. Even though I live in Florida, I will be using it. I am eagerly awaiting it's arrival. As for ordering one, I found out while talking with him about something else. I also ordered a compression sack for it. I'll post more about it when it arrives.
