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. Great Clothing

    At 71, I finally drew a ram tag after 21 years of applying in Colorado. It would be a solo hunt, going out every day. I’ve used your sleeping bags ‘forever’, but only recently started using your clothing. Although I used multiple items, the two I relied on the most were your socks and Ducksback raincoat. I actually used the coat as a sweater underneath my camo parka. After climbing for a couple hours in the morning to get above tree line to glass at first light, I was wet and the wind was blowing. I would put on the raincoat, with my camo over it. Within minutes, I was dry and warm. Before moving, I would lay the now damp coat out in the sun and it was dry in minutes. However, I was most impressed with the socks. I knew the terrain would be rocky and much of it above tree line, so I was wearing very heavy mountaineering boots. On day 13, I was successful. It was a 24 hour day, with 18 of it hiking, running, crawling, but mostly multiple trips of carrying very heavy loads down the mountain. At the end of the day, there were no hot spots, no blisters, and my feet were dry. The rest of me may have been a wreck, but my feet were fine. Thank you for some great products.

  2. Life Support Gear

    Jerry and staff:

    I believe your products, though used primarily as recreational gear, can and should be rated as Life Support Gear.


    No other manufacturers bags, can be compressed indefinitely, without loosing loft, and in my own testing, when I'm soaking wet, the bag is saturated, crawl into it, you will be warm, given adequate ground insulation, in freezing rain/fog, without a shelter of any type. I know Jerry doesn't recommend this, but the fact that you can be sick or injured, in exposed, hypothermia inducing conditions , and if you can get into your bag, you will be warm. And the bags he makes to work with his Freedom shelter, define the survival bag. When I pack, Jerry's bag is what everything else is built around.

  3. Quality Vs lack thereof

    Thank you Jerry. If North Face paid any attention to your quality, they would probably cry and go home. Over the years I have amassed all of the cold weather gear that I will ever need including 3 sleeping bags. I Wouldn't sell any of it, even for original cost. I just hope the pack boots hold up since you no longer make them.

  4. Simple, Effective, QUALITY

    Wiggy's gear works.
    Simple as that.
    Every item EVER purchased has performed EXACTLY as Jerry said it would. And in my experiences sometimes even better. Sleeping bags, work wear, pac boots, gloves, ground pads (luxurious) fish nets, socks, abd now the "seconds" leather work boots.
    Even Wiggy's "seconds" are of a quality that exceeds most outdoor wear retailers "top quality".
    My comments are unsolicited and not reimbursed in ANY fashion, nor is it my normal procedure to comment on any product. The products available here are reliable and long lasting quality gear for anyone that is outdoors in less than favorabke conditions

  5. Lamilite Boots are Out-of-the-Box Workhorse Comfort

    Hi Jerry,

    I bought a pair of these "blem boots" or "factory seconds" last fall and used them on several occasions hiking on soil, rock and in the snow this winter. All I can say is that I love these boots! They may be about the best boots I have ever purchased.

    First off, they are true "American" sizes. My feet are actually about a size 12 but because of overseas production, I have become accustomed to buying size 14 all the time. Good thing I tried them on at your factory first because your size 12 Lamilite Boots fit me perfectly. So if any of your customers out there order a pair, don't go by the overseas standards... get your regular American size.

    Secondly I noticed that the brown leather is slightly softer and not quite as firm as the black. You explained to me that in the dye process black comes out a bit more firm at first than the natural brown. Either boot would have been great but I chose the brown and I love it.

    When I asked you how hard they were to "break-in", you told me that there was no break-in period, that they are ready to wear right out of the box. Man were you right! I used to soak brand new boots in water and wear them until dry to break them in faster. Not these! I put these on the first day, wore them all day long and then went hiking with them the next weekend and not a blister or a sore spot anywhere. They are phenomenal.

    When Jerry says, "No break-in required" - he means No Break-In Required! It's true. So don't be afraid to buy your real size and start wearing them right out of the box. These are some of the most comfortable boots I have ever owned and I recommend them to anyone.

    The Vibram soles are also a great bottom with good grip. The inside is extremely comfortable and they do come with a removable insert which appears that it will last many years. When laced up tight, they do not pinch the ankle because of the quality of the leather and the craftsmanship of the build. I do treat mine with Lexol Leather Conditioner and pure Mink Oil. Be sure to rub it in good along all the stitching and seams, especially where the sole meets the leather. This is a spot where all boots tend to deteriorate if not treated properly and regularly.

    I also purchased the Lamilite Socks to go with the boots and although they looked weird to me at first, they are just as comfortable as any other sock in my drawer. However, with the Lamilite Socks my feet stay dry even after hiking all day down into and back up out of a canyon. These socks are sort of like wearing a mini-sleeping bag on your feet and yes, I did wear the socks in my sleeping bag at night as well. They worked great.

    I think that about covers it. The Lamilite Boots are great - even the "seconds" are superb. I actually like the blemish mine have in the leather. It gives them character and saved me a hundred bucks!

    Thanks Jerry for another great product.


    Sincerely yours,

    Mark Hillen
    Olathe, Colorado

    PS - My wife also loves the Lamilite Booties! Her feet are now finally warm in the house at night. I'm gonna get a pair of the booties for myself one day as well.

  6. Long past due review…

    I will try to make this short but in a nutshell, WHAT A GREAT SLEEPING BAG! I bought it back in like 1992. I bought the Ultima Thule. Wiggy’s did not have the assortment of products it does today. I was also a bit apprehensive about where I was buying it… a warehouse!

  7. Keeps me coming back for more

    Dear Wiggy, I just returned from my annual dog mushing vacation in the Yukon Territory , outside of Whitehorse off of Lake Lebarge. Many years ago, I got frost nip on my left toes and left hand fingers when I was a ski instructor in New Hampshire. I live in New Hampshire today and go back to the Yukon to dog mush and the head to Anchorage And Eaglr River to visit with old friends from my time up there in the Air Force.
    I now have your Snow walkers for both of my pairs of Sorels as well as the socks and the camp booties. THEY ARE GREAT! At no time, during temps between -15 F up to 12 F, did my feet EVER get cold ! In fact, when I returned each day from going out with the dogs, I knew that I had condensation inside the Sorels but because of the wicking action of the Socks and Sunwalkers, my feet stayed DRY and WARM! The Booties are the best thing for wearing in my cabin and Especially convenient when one has to visit the Outhouse in the middle of the night when the temps went down to -20 F!

    I showed my friends in Eagle River the Sunwalkers as one of them has circulation problems with his feet is still using felt liners. I took him down to the Wiggy in Anchorage and he got a pair of Sunwalkers. I picked up a pair of the Kodak Mittons and the Insualated Head Cover! The next day we were out walking some trails. Temps in the teens and snowing . Well, I can tell you he was amazed at how nice and warm and comfortable his feet felt! And those Mittons rock!

    Thank You for making Great Products. God Bless Lamilite and all its parts!


  8. MONEY WELL SPENT!

    After buying many top of the line sleeping bags over the years and doing lots of research Wiggy out performs them all!. The durability, craftsmanship, quality, warmth and ability to wash it makes it worth every penny. The staff has a quality product that leaves the shop and it doesn't go unnoticed, AWESOME job! The customer service was amazing and very helpful. I have bought 6 bags already and will be buying any future bags from Wiggy as well, you just can't beat it.

  9. insulated head cover, renegade mittens

    it has been cold in Virginia. sometimes in single digits. i ride a fat tire electric mountain bike to check my trail cameras around the farm. the insulated head cover keeps my head warn. i can wear it with a cap or without. if it gets too warm i wear it with the top pulled back. another nice feature i can wear my bike helmet over it. i also like the way the front and back tuck into my shirt or jacket. the renegade mittens keep my hands and fingers warm. my fingers would start freezing up [almost numb] when i changed sd cards and batteries in the cameras. my fingers and hands warmed up quickly. i also wear the laminate socks, fishnet top, and liners. the insulated poncho liner just arrived and it fits perfectly. Wiggy's is the best!

  10. Complaint - sort of

    Hi Jerry,
    It was a Wiggy's Christmas for me, a Ducksback zippered jacket, fish net underwear, socks, 2nd layer shirt - SO, with the temp at 0 F I put on the fishnet underwear, my jeans, a flannel shirt, my Ducksback jacket and went out to snow blow the driveway. The task usually takes about an hour and after about 30 seconds I had to remove the hood as I was getting too warm, after finishing the job I came inside and almost immediately had to take off the top fishnet as I was WAY too warm. I ventured out several times today without the top fishnet on and just the jacket and found it was a bit cool without the fishnet underwear. I am amazed at how warm the fishnet keeps me in zero degree temps, great stuff Jerry, I will not use any other brand. By the way, the Ducksback stayed perfectly dry even with blowing snow (my beard was caked). When I wore your sweater to do the same task, it got soaked, but I stayed warm although the temps were only in the low 20's when I did that. Great bags and clothing and thank you for making my Merry Christmas a warm one.
