DUCKSBACK ZIPPERED JACKETS

They are now in inventory as is the pullover.

All orders that were received until now are shipping this week.

They are remarkably light in weight. The extra-large that I have been wearing has a weight of just one pound and nine ounces. To weight it I placed it in a poly bag that measure 12 inches square and it packed down to about 2/3rds the size of the poly bag.

I have worn it in temperatures in the low 30’s and been very comfortable. The pullover has basically 3 times the insulation so it performs at 0 degrees.

Of course if these garments get dirty they are easily washed in any washing machine and drying should be hung dry as they will not be wet for very long.

I expect this garment will get much use during the cooler months of the year by anyone who buys one.

To those of you who have purchase either the pullover or the zippered jacket and had to wait I want to thank you and I hope you are satisfied with these garments.

I wonder if any of the buyers are with companies that have claimed to sell what I am now selling?

more Clo points

FOLLOW UP TO CLO TESTINGThere are other reasons as if they are necessary why Clo testing needs to be clarified and why the testing of insulations as standalone materials is not a valid method and is unacceptable.Recently I had each of the three primary weights of Lamilite/Climashield Clo tested, but I encased each weight with the single ply nylon taffeta that [...]

clo value?
