Hi Wiggys crew,
The new site looks great!

Just wanted to take a minute and thank you for your work.

From the Antarctic Bag & Mitts, our beautiful white Fossil Ridge Parkas & Bibs, Mukluks, even the booties & other odds & ends…   these have all become my favorite things, because they’re the equipment depend on with full confidence.  Amazing warmth, breathability and comfort, rugged durability, washability, and the quality of your company itself, standing behind your products & even accommodating custom orders; there is just no one like you guys.

You’ve made winter my favorite time of year.  Now when it’s -35, I grab a book, my gear & snowshoes, head out wherever, and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air in total comfort.  I’ve used your gear winter camping & adventuring up into canada, climbing up/sliding down snow, ice, rocks & dirt, been blown across Lake Superior on my face in ice squalls and after the initial shock, even enjoyed the experience of getting run over by the freight train whiteout hurricane, completely warm & protected.  Somehow, this stuff shows no wear yet!  I don’t get it, but I love it.

I can’t thank you enough for the excellent equipment and your willingness to do custom work to make everything perfect for your customers.

Sincerely,
Pete Doering

Here are a few pics of places your gear has allowed me  to go...

Mr. Wigutow,

In August of this year I completed my Alaskan caribou hunt that I discussed in my first email back in April, 2014. During the trip, I utilized the Super Light bag that I purchased on your advice. I had the FTRSS with me but I did not need it! I used it as an extra sleeping bag since the Super Light was plenty warm; for short periods I slept with bare feet and was plenty warm. I was able to dry out most of my clothes just by either wearing them in the bag or stuffing them inside while I was in it. My buddies with cheap bags never could dry their clothes and they were miserable. I did not take your ground pad with me since we had an outfitter camp package that included (cheap USGI-type) sleeping pads.

I also wore daily your 9” socks and jacket liner. They worked very well in keeping me warm and dry. The socks were very comfortable during the 40-plus miles I walked while on the hunt. In the attached photo I was wearing the jacket inside out as 'tundra camo.' It worked well in that regard.

Anyways, thank you for the great advice and for the great products.

Posing with caribou


I think I bought my Ultima Thule back in like 1997 and it's still my go to bag in the winter time here in Colorado. Over New Year's eve I backpacked up Pikes Peak and camped inside Monty's Rock Pile just below Barr Camp. The temp at night was around 5 below zero and I slept toasty warm thanks to your bag. Thanks Jerry.

[Here's a picture of] your awsome waders at work. 3rd season on them and of course they were trashed by the end of last season, but a few patches got us through this season. They sure do make crossing streams with sheep meat on your back a little nicer. Thanks again and keep up the good work.

  1. Chukka boots

    Hi Jerry,

    Just wanted you to know how happy I am with my Chuka boots. I have worn them without the lamilite socks in 20 degree temperatures, and in the 85-90 temperature range on a three mile hike while wearing heavy wool socks in both conditions. My feet were warm in the 20's, and most amazing to me, not hot or sweaty, in the Florida heat. Oh yes, they are very comfortable. Thank you for another quality product.

  2. Info

    I have been doing a lot of research on Wiggys I have been a consistent fan of Asolo boots for the last 10 years, but my problem with them is that once they get wet they stay wet for days. In my line of work that causes serious problems. I call the store and had a few questions. The nice lady said I will have Jerry call you, and sure enough he did! After a great conversation I bought a pair of boots. I can't wait to wear them and I can't wait to be a life long Wiggys owner! Thank you

  3. liner jacket

    And I have to say, as I sit here spelling out this reply I’m wearing one of your liner jackets. I love this simple and wonderful thing. It’s so simply adaptable. I can get a little chilled here at the desk, but with the liner I’m perfectly comfortable. Further, in that I’ve had the liner for the past few weeks (not long at all), I’ve at least had the opportunity to walk across the parking lot in about 30 degree temps, and I find it to be absolutely comfortable then as well. I’m sure I will have even more experiences as I get into next winter.

    Your other garments must be absolutely amazing in cold temps. I find myself believing everything I’m reading on your site. My son has a desire to serve his mission in a place like Norway. Time will tell if he does. But, if he indeed is called to such a region I’m thinking he will be taking something with the Wiggy’s name on it.

    Thanks, Jerry!

  4. The Jacket Liner Was Enough!

    Recently, I attended law enforcement instructor training in Central Washington in which the days were snowy and pushing to the low 10s for temperature. I layered up and used only the Wiggy's jacket liner as my warm cover. It was more than enough to not only keep me warm and functional, but also gave enough padding for those frozen SImunition rounds I took as part of the training. The liner absolutely was the best, durable, light yet warm. Over my years in the military and LE, my personally purchased and owned Wiggy's products have not failed me. I remain a enthusiastic user and support of the products.

  5. LONGEVITY OF LAMILITE

    I have one of your early super light bags. It's at least 25 years old. My dad gave it to me for a motorcycle camping trip. It still looks and performs like the first night I used it.

    All the best,
    Garrett

  6. cold condition use

    Hello Wiggy's! I enjoy the ongoing education regarding the process of staying warm in cold and extreme temps. Thanks for the good reading. I do live in Northern WI so the info has been put to use. Getting to my point, friends and I just completed our 18th annual February trek into the BWCA for camping and fishing. Based on the recommendation of a musher friend I upgraded my gear to include a Wiggy's Arctic boat-foot bag and sleeping pad. While temps were not the normal -30 to -40 (only -20), the technology of my new gear was apparent. Can't say enough about Wiggy's. Your products made a great experience even better, and the general information shared in your newsletter is very valuable to anyone who is serious about thriving in harsh conditions.

    I COULDN'T BE HAPPIER!!

  8. WHAT A TESTIMONIAL FOR WIGGY'S

    Pat, I know that you have listened to Bob extol the virtues of Wiggy's (he has to be the biggest walking Wiggy advertisement out there). But one thing about Bob is that he tests shit before he will recommend it. Since Bob has recommended Wiggy and I have tried it, I now have over a dozen and a half sleeping bags from 35*F overbags, to -20* F Ultima Thule bags (when combined are -40*F). I have Wiggy's water bottles, sleeping pads, dog coats, boots, bivy bags, underwear and other items. The thing about Bob is that although he is sometimes irritating in his stubborn support of a position, he is most often also correct...which makes it more irritating!



    Anyway, the first Wiggy's bag I had, was the one that I took to the desert. I did not know it was Wiggy's because I had purchased it as a US Cavalry product. I used it day in and day out for 6 months. Never washed it once and by the time we got back to Camp Lejeune it smelled so bad, that I thought I would need to burn it. Into the washer, and it was as good as new. (Wiggy not only allows you to wash his bags and other gear, he actively encourages it.) I still own and use that bag 25 years later!


    As a salesman, I know that we are mostly all liars, and I take the marketing with a grain of salt. I am now sold on Wiggy's for the science and the performance. The temperature ratings are as accurate (conservative) as they can be.


    Once I was out with the scouts and I grabbed my trusty Wiggy's zero degree Super Light. You know I very seldom sleep under a tent, and that night was no exception. About 0100, I woke up cold and could not seem to get warm. I was mother f-ing Wiggy, and his mother, and his company, and their crappy temp ratings! After all it was,only 17*F, and I was freaking cold! Well I put my wool hunting coat over the torso portion of the bag and slept just fine through the rest of the night. When I got home and unpacked the bag to air it out, I discovered that I had mistakenly packed my 35*F over bag. It was NOT comfortable, but it was survivable...even at 17*F!


    If I had been inside a tent (the way Wiggy rates his bags), then I don't know if I would have even woken up at all? My coldest night out (in a Wiggy's bag Ultima Thule -20*F) has been at -17*F. (Not in a tent, on a frozen lake, two sleeping pads-one Wiggy's and one foam pad). I was warm and comfortable through the night...no issues at all.


    Anyway, I'm sending this out to some of my camping friends for their edification. I camp less than any of you, and I would never dream to pit my outdoors knowledge or experience against theirs, but I do know that this Wiggy's stuff WORKS! Not because of marketing and high priced labels, but because of science. Linked below are two recent Wiggy's articles explaining the science of keeping dry and keeping warm (nothing new here).


    Take it for what it's worth, but I believe this is a great product. US made, lifetime unconditional warranty, quality throughout. Like I said, I have dozens of Wiggy products and have not been disappointed yet. A little heavier, a little bulkier than down, but IMHO a good night's sleep is well worth an extra pound or two.

  9. Wow, my wiggys bag came in handy last night for an unexpected use

    I bought a wiggys bag a few years ago for my once in a lifetime float hunt in Alaska. The bag worked as advertised and the hunt was successful with a Boone and Crockett Bull Moose. I have not used it since but over the weeekend I caught the flu, been miserable with transitions of high fever with a ton of sweating and chills that had me shivering like a mermaid at the North Pole. So last night I wake up and my bed is soaking wet and the cotton sheets and quilt are drenched, I know that simply changing the linens will only result in having to do it again every hour or so, and the soaking wet blankets are only making me colder. Not sure how I thought of it because I was not thinking to clearly but I remembered about my wiggys bag and the claims of it keeping you warm even if wet, it worked like a char, I am actually still in the bag right now.

    Thanks Wiggy, while I was still miserable with the fever and flu symptoms, I was no longer cold and actually got some rest.

  10. Arctic Expedition proven - through an Ice Storm

    I was raised a Bush Alaskan, watching her turn from a Territory to a state as a commercial fisherman's son. Living in a wilderness environment was the way we got things done, and you learned quick on the trail what to do - and what not to do. I have endured frost bitten ears at an early age proving it. After retiring from a Law Enforcement career, of which three years were spent in the Arctic, I had to return. Anyone that has been there understands, I don't think I could explain it well anyway. I came across Wiggy's while researching the gear I knew I would need - and at the time our Kodiak based Coast Guard SAR units were using the -20 bags for recovery of their hypothermic victims, especially at sea. I took the -60 with me, and later on a second expedition the -40 with the Thule shell that was offered (this was 1997 - 98). Those bags were to prove one of the best investments I have made in trail gear. Example - While out on what had started, and promised to be a beautiful day, I kayaqed out through a lead in the ice that was over a mile wide, and opening wider in the direction I was traveling. The land ahead was clearly visible, and only a few hours away. That was to change. The wind began to pick up out of the NE, and with the changing thermals a freezing mist began to flow off of the pack. Worse, the flow of the "Sag" River was starting the pack to corkscrew with the incoming tide, which began to cut off my lead openings - and then, as the visibility continued to drop, it began to close off the lead entirely. I began to hear the ice grinding together out of range of my view, which had dropped to less than 100 yards at best - usually less. Swirling, setting as deep as only a freezing sea fog can, I could feel my body core begin to take the strain. I worked my through one dead end after another, twisting my way through a changing maze of shadows grinding together as I passed, turning from one opening through another just after each would close. After over ten hours I was drained, and knew it was try to find a piece of ice that was stable and big enough to hold me, and get out of the kayaq, or freeze. It was barely an hour later that one came into view that had an opening just large enough for my kayaq to slip out of the way of the ice flows and into a safe place to haul out. I pulled the prospector's hammer out ( a climbing pick would not have been strong enough to withstand the twisting motion of the loaded kayaq against the flow) and impaled it into the ice, then set the hollow titanium ice pegs in to secure the boat. When finally able to drag myself out, I could barely feel my legs, but I knew that I had to set up the full camp or without shelter I was done. The double wall tent went up without any complications, previously arranged in the bag to slide into place with each peg securing it as I went. Then after I laid out the pad, I heated a simple pot of soup - and crawled into the Wiggy's. The midnight sun was a frosty glow at 0130 hours that morning - but I slept like a log. The bag wicked out any moisture that would have finished me - and I awoke as if I had had a normal sleep on land - a hard pan sleep - there's no give in that ice, as you'd expect. But the bag did what I carried it for - and after 20 years and two expeditions it is still like new without a tear or failure of any kind - retaining bag and all. I'm planning a third photographic expedition to the Arctic again - the bags will go with me - and the Antarctic Parka, when I can afford it. The incident turned out right because the equipment was carried to make it right - but with so many that carry down or cotton in the field, it could have been much worse. Cotton kills - but Wiggy's kill the chills. I know - WKD
