Fantastic Service, Quality Products!
I had originally wanted a cuben fiber tarp for my hammock but when I decided to go on a trip in April, realized that I didn't have the time or money to get one. So I checked out all of the vendors listed here and was shocked to see that the Tadpole was at the perfect size, weight, and price ratio to be acceptable for a UL Backpacker like me. Knowing that gear can take a long time to get to me, I ordered it three weeks before my trip and explained my situation in the special notes and settled in for the wait. I ordered it and some snake skins on the evening of March 15th and I was going to be ecstatic if it had showed up by April 1st. You can imagine my utter shock when my hubby called me at work yesterday (March 19th) to let me know I had a package from Wilderness Logics waiting for me!! That is less than 4 full days from order to delivery and that's with a Sunday in there. And on top of that, when I set it up, I was extremely happy with the quality and precision of the work!
To say I am pleased would be an understatement, blown completely away is probably more accurate!! I have never seen a cottage company work with the customer service of a small operation but with the speed of a corporation. I still want my CF tarp but before this I had heard of WL but hadn't thought much about buying anything from them, now I'm definitely checking them first!!
Ha - Another +1 to Marty and his customer service today!
