    I have made nylon strands in a chemistry lab. If you have the chems it is not hard to do. Getting the correct diameter and shape is the tough part of it.

    We made an ugly looking piece about 15 feet long out of a beaker the size of a coke can.

    May i ask how his pricing compares to others? Since he doesn't make them and this was special order I'm curious cause I tried a Wiggys bag and absolutely LOVED IT. Getting my own Wiggys has been on my radar but if his quilt is more affordable I'm already thinking about going that direction...

    $125 was the price on this under-blanket. He won't call it a quilt since he does not use quilting.

    I have a Wiggys bag and it is great! If this blanket is half as good as the bag I will be pleased. I just hope his design fits well with the shape of the hammock.

    Not a bad price! Wonder if he would make a top 'quilt'? When do you expect it to arrive? I borrowed a Wiggy's sleep bag once and loved it too. Slept like a baby in some pretty cold weather.

    What's the suspension look like? I too like wiggy's bags but the zippers and other hardware are way, way overkill. Since this has no zipper that should save some weight right there.

    I was kicking around turning my desert bag into a summer underquilt. I've also got one of the "Ecotat" bags he produced that would probably make a pair of 3-season quilts. I can't wait to see how this new product turns out.

    Mine is scheduled to arrive on Friday. I will get all the specs and photos posted as soon as I can. I'm looking forward to trying it out. We are supposed to get down in to the
    30's this weekend.
