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. 100% SPOT ON

    I didn't know this company existed until 24 hours ago . I found out they have been around for 33 years . I had to ask myself " Where have I been in a cave ? " . I've been in the outdoors most of my life camping , hiking , hunting , fishing and boating . I'm 65 now and still enjoying every minute I can in the outdoors . I started bass fishing when I was about 5 and caught my first 5 pound bass at about 8 with a Shakespeare spinning rod and reel using a inline spinner , yellow with black dots called a shyster. You can't forget the greatest moment of your life . So now I've got about 60 years of fishing tales.
    I've been camping most of my life too , been through many tents , pop-ups ,
    trailers and sleeping bags . I have watched outdoor life evolve and I've been through a lot of products from rotten junk to fantastically great products that I still use today , some re from the 60's era when I was a kid. I still have the spinning reel from that 5 lb bass , I don't have the fish as he was eaten .
    ,, I now have 2 super light , zero degree , 4 lb bags in camo with the boat foot . I feel like i caught my first 5lb bass , these bags are great . Everything is as advertised , true . I feel these bags are going to do the job and are of good quality .
    ,, I have a minus 30 degree bag , it weighs 15 pounds and rolled up it's about the same size of a 90 liter backpack . Way to big to go hiking with . The Wiggy bag compress well , it's light at only 4lbs and full fills my needs in this area as far as temps . Next hunting season started when this years season ended . We will be out scouting and making natural blinds near game trails. I will be using a Wiggy's . I'll bring both bags , in case one gets wet. I actually looking forward to using the Wiggy's bag .
    ,, I really wish I had known of this company because it makes me feel like i really missed a good experience . Now I'm considering some more products for the next hunting season . I am planning to spend almost the entire season in a tent From October until February . I started buying supplies yesterday .
    ,, I forgot to mention that I slept in my Wiggy's bag last night , no problems and the zippers 100% on the spot . The zippers didn't get stuck or eat the fabric . My feet had plenty of room and styed warm. . Last nights temps were not cold , tonight's temps will be , maybe 48 . But the next cold dip I'll be outside in a tent ,,,, well gonna run , I think you will enjoy a Wiggy's bag , I've got over 50 years of camping and I like it better than my old goose down bags. I'll be giving these 2 bags a workout for this years hunt . Thanks for actually making a quality product .. HAND SALUTE FROM A VET

  2. UNBELIEVEABLE!!!!!

    I'm in St Louis, where we experience a wide range of temperatures and snow/ice conditions. I work outside all year delivering food on a bicycle and an electric scooter. I ride my scooter all year as long as the roads are nice. It was 2F degrees here, and with my Wiggys Urban Antarctic parka, and ONLY one US Military "waffle shirt (level2) I can EASILY survive my scooter ride.

    The Super Mittens held up to temps as well. This is an amazing product. I am so balmy-warm at 8 F degrees, i just cant believe it.

    Someone was actually yelling at me, telling me how dangerous it was to be on a scooter at 2F, (and 20mph wind, 17.5 mph scooter). I told him Im wearing Wiggys and Im ok, while passing him by on the scooter.

    Wiggys will save your life if power ever goes out. All you need is JUST ONE shirt and you are perfectly warm; that is the most unbelievable part about it. When you zip the parka up fully, even at 2F a facemask is not necessary. .

    The way it fits is amazing .If you zip it up to the neck, there is extra insulation in the neck/hood area to keep your neck warm, and you really dont need a scarf. I have received many compliments on this coat, the women seem to really love it (just wait until I get the polar bear/fox/ wolverine combo ruff!)

    Every farmer who has to work in the cold needs one of these; every single one of them. It is durable and can withstand working in it. Another amazing fact of the Wiggys Urban Antarctic is its operating range. I can wear this coat in freaky st louis weather when it is 60-70F and not burn up. It has a temperature range of -20F to 70F. I'm perfectly warm at 2F with -19F wind-chill, plus my scooter wind. Thank you to everyone at Wiggys for working so hard to make these coats

    Carhart (the Big C) will rob you of your heat. It is like wearing aluminum foil the way it conducts the cold. Then you have to buy all these shirts and pull overs and hoodies to stay warm, but you cant stay warm, because the Carhart bibs and coat sucks the heat right out of you, Then gets wet and even colder. It is a losing situation that can kill you if find yourself with no heat. I wasted sooo much money on that Carhart crap in the past. I have actually injured myself wearing too many garments trying to stay warm.

    With Wiggys, all I need is only one shirt. If it get to about -20F and the wind picks up i would need the wind shirt. It is an ingenious cold weather system worth buying I highly recommend this to anyone who wants to not freeze to death. You never know when your car is going to break down, or how long a tow may be, or if your power goes out.

  3. Lamilite socks are the best!

    After putting these socks (13 inch) thru their paces - long pheasant hunts - stand sits for deer hunting - 60F to 10F - I’m a firm believer in the quality and functionality of these socks. They keep your feet warm and dry and when you take them off they air dry in 10minutes! Thanks Jerry for making a great product and for your help with my questions.

  4. to add....

    For a brisk long walk in cold conditions, a simple tee-shirt with my Wiggy's Sweater is wonderful exercise wear.

    If I'm exerting myself and it's no colder than perhaps 25 degrees F, I can forget layering with this combination.
    Just zip up to start, and drop the zipper as needed after a while when my body temperature climbs.

    Wiggy's is outdoor gear that makes the good things in life better.

  5. style

    I greatly appreciate that my Wiggy's Sweater is black.. all black, with NO brightly-colored garish logos or other trim.

    It has a decidedly adult look, and the esthetic beauty to my eye is in the sleek functional styling.

    Everything you need, nothing you do not.
    Wiggy's does not make of you a walking billboard when wearing Wiggy's cold-weather garments.

    Now I want another Sweater in Olive Drab, and I intend to make that purchase also.

    Thanks Wiggy, for offering the best outdoor gear and cold-weather outerwear on earth. Worth every penny, and then some.

  6. "Life Essential", Life Support Equipment labeled and rated or Survival gear...

    As the individual below so eloquently stated, the gear you make masquerading as recreational gear, which is actually a good thing, because that encourages use, which yields experience and familiarity, that in a survival situation, pays huge dividends. Best way I can say it, the knowledge and reassurance that the tools you "play with", when your day turns to shit, will give you and everyone with you the best opportunity to go home with an epic story, is priceless, just make sure it says Wiggy's on the label.

    Regards, Jim

  7. for life

    I've posted a testimonial recently for my Wiggy's Sweater.
    I consider it the most important piece of outerwear I'll ever own, the one to never be without.

    I have several Wiggy's sleeping bags.
    I have camped in my Wiggy's bags in cold weather, but not the Rocky Mountain conditions for which they're made.

    For me they are essential no matter where I am.
    They are my assurance that no matter where or under what cold-weather conditions I may need to sleep or shelter, I have there at hand the best possible means to ensure I can stay well and sleep restfully.
    There can be those times when that is critical to your life or survival.
    When those times may possibly be at hand, I already know Wiggy has it covered for me and it's right.... here.


    Wiggy's bags being so resilient to being stored tightly rolled for any period is a feature which stands alone and is integral to what makes them such absolutely essential gear for life and self-care.

    The same applies to my Wiggy's Sweater and I appreciate it in the same way. My life takes twists and turns. The more easily and with less fuss my soft gear packs and travels, the more valuable it is to me and my lifestyle.
    And the better then I can be sure that I have it with me when I need it.

    If it's life-essential gear then it has to work, no excuses.
    Thanks Wiggy's for using the best zippers on the planet.
    There's no compromise in this gear folks.
    One thing you can absolutely count on in a cold world.

  8. the Wiggys Sweater is the ultimate basic outdoor gear

    After 5 years with my first Wiggy's Sweater, I decided that it's the most important piece of outer-wear I own.

    So I recently purchased a 2nd Sweater.
    For me this lightweight easy-to-wear garment is too important to have only one on hand.

    The Ducksback outer shell is a nice improvement.
    It is a little stiff at first, but quickly softens up and feels wonderful to the touch, wonderful to have wrapped around you under all conditions.

    Wiggy's gear is the best to be found anywhere.
    Live in it, depend on it.

    Thanks Wiggy for offering these great products!




  9. Thanks for your Wiggy's News and Commentary

    Jerry,
    I always enjoy reading your “Wiggy’s News and Commentary”, people using your equipment and giving their honest opinions and experiences with valid and relevant input from you. I truly believe experience is the best teacher.

    The 24 November, 2020 issue really had a couple of excellent points. The recommendation for the Alaska bush pilot to purchase the vacuum packed -20 Ultima Thule sleeping bag for survival situations was spot on!! 2 bags with opposite zippers (body heat saves lives) double thumbs up But the line I liked the most was “Survival is survival whether it is a plane crash or getting hurt on the trail, accidents do happen”.

    Your Sleeping Bags ARE survival equipment and not just for Alaska Bush pilots. All it takes, like you stated, is equipment breakdown, a wrong turn or rapidly changing weather conditions and anyone can be in a survival situation.

    In the United States Military I attended Cold Weather Survival School, (Fairchild Air Force Base Washington State ,middle of January no less). I remember one of my instructors telling me about the US military sleeping bags we were using, he said “You will not be comfortable or warm in these bags, but they will keep you alive”. He was right!! Don’t think I slept more than a few minutes at a time.

    Your bags are survival SLEEPING BAGS, if you are warm and comfortable, even if you get in the bag wet, you will get the sleep you need to make good decisions and survive.

    Thanks again for sharing your knowledge and expertise and producing Outstanding, Made in USA equipment!!

  10. Not so funny story about cold feet

    Recently went hiking on the John Muir trail with new friends and it was quite cold (28 degrees F) The couple I went with had Down sleeping bags and before they crawled in for bedtime they starting telling me the tricks to staying warm at night, "They knew nothing of my vast experience camping in cold weather" they said that everyone should pack the foot of their bag with dry clothing so that their sleeping doesn't get wet from their feet and then get cold. ????? I asked them if their feet always got wet while in their sleeping bag and they said yes. They even said that "Backpacker Magazine" even said to do this! I started telling the about Wiggy's bags and how their feet won't collect the dampness or wetness and they just didn't want to hear it.......So OK then. Early morning before light the gal woke with freezing feet and was just miserable, she was angry and told her husband that she would never go winter or cold weather camping again. I kinda stepped in and said that she could wear my "Wiggys SunWalker 2 booties so I immediately gave them to her to put on while still in her sleeping bag. Well, 5 hours later she finally woke and said that was her best night of backpacking sleep and smiled and said she couldn't wait to get her Wiggys Booties. Needless to say, my feet never got damp or wet inside my Wiggy's sleeping bag.
