    warbonnet yeti: down torso uq

    hey all, i was gonna wait till after thanksgiving, but i'll go ahead and start taking orders now. (i will be out of town till the monday after thanksgiving, but will try and check my email several times)

    there are 2 versions, the 3 season yeti baffled to 2" and the winter yeti baffled to 3.5" right now price for both will be 200$

    the shape is the same as my old synthetic torso was. roughly 40w x 46L.(goes just above shoulders to 6" past crotch on me 5'10") it incorporates a curved sided asym shape that's designed to fit snugly to any end gathered hammock. features differentially cut shells, lengthwise oriented baffles, and draft tubes at the ends.

    i have 4 of the winer yeti's basically complete (overstuff comes standard). the weight is right at 20 oz.(including 1/2oz stuffsac) i have one with an extra oz and another with 3 extra oz of fill that i will sell for slightly less, they should be a little warmer, but with 3.5" baffles the 20oz version should go pretty darn low. sub zero i hope.

    the 2" thick 3 season yeti's should be around 15 oz.

    pm me if interested.

    i'll be coming out with a standard 48" wide rectangular top quilt soon as well. just comment here if interested, if a few post interest i'll try and hurry up and figure out all the details on them.

    Glad to see you developed one with down Brandon. For those of us NOT doing the whole frigid artic thing, do you think the 3 season would be good into the 20s?

    don't know any exact temp ranges yet. good news is it's getting cold enough to start testing uq now. i'll test the 3 season's as soon as i have one done. it's already getting into the 20's here in CO

    I might be interested in a regular 48" rectangular, depending on the particulars.

    Yep, that's what I meant. Forgot to add the w after the 48.

    I am hoping to be able to spring for the most over-stuffed UQ if budget allows. Sounds awesome!
    I will check in with you from time to time on that.

    I'm in the same boat... I'd love to get my hands on one of the overstuffed ones, but with Christmas shopping looming, I just don't have the funds available, and probably won't until it starts to be warm enough that I won't NEED a heavy-duty UQ anymore.
