GOOD MORNING WIGGY’S

It is Saturday morning and when I went trough my emails the following was one of them. when you read it, you will understand why I am passionate about the products that we make at Wiggy’s especially the sleeping bags.

Jerry,

We have met several times over the years, and it is always a pleasure. I have been a commercial river guide in Moab (just next door) since 1990.

I heard about Wiggy's in 1996(?) and came to the factory and bought a Super Light sleeping bag. I slept one night in it and sold the two other North Face bags I had the next day.

Since then I have bought Wiggy's bags for my wife and kids. You walked my kids briefly around the factory floor a few years ago - and while they were likely too young to remember, it was a kind gesture that I will not forget. You guys were even nice enough to custom make some summer bags with no zippers for me that we use at the house as blankets regularly.

Attached is a photo of my original 25-year-old Super Light (I cannot copy and paste pictures easily, so I do not attempt to do that)- soaked with early morning dew on the Main Salmon River just two weeks ago. I slept content and comfortable all night long and it was dry enough to pack away in just a few minutes of sunshine. It has been on more trips than I can count - and it is as reliable as ever.

Thanks for making a great product, year in and year out.

I hope to get the chance to run into you again at the factory someday soon,

Best,

qh

Reading Quinn’s experiences with the sleeping bags that Wiggy’s produces is not new to me, it just never gets old. So, Quinn thank you very much for your letter.

Later in the morning the following email was received. Joe was asking about which bag could be used in his auto and I suggested the Nautilus, however, here is his response.

Hi Jerry,

The Nautilus would be a good choice if I were to replace my Desert bag.

However, I have two of your original Slumber bags, an Ultra-Light boat foot bag, the Overbag that goes with this bag, and a Marpat Ultra-Light I bought for my son. I probably do not need any more sleeping bags for Los Angeles although I loan them to family members from time to time.

By far the most used articles I have from you are the Liner Jacket and Liner Vest. I wear them from October to April. I am 76 years old and have mild peripheral neuropathy, so they are comfortable and make the zip up Ducksback jacket even warmer on cold days. Socks, booties, balaclavas, and gloves add additional comfort.

Overall, what I like most about your products is their warmth, lightness, and ease of maintenance.

Best regards,

Joe

I do not believe I can express the feeling I develop when I read the number of products someone lets me know they have purchased and offer the reason why. So, thank you Joe.

INSULATIONS

I recently received an email from a company that has a new insulation that offers the best in their opinion vapor permeability and warm retention available. Having read their literature, I wrote to them asking about it. I also accepted their offer of receiving samples of their material. The fiberfill that they use is a chopped staple fiber. I will describe for you how they claim their product is formulated and inhibits vapor permeability. When I receive the sample, it will confirm what they are doing.

From the pictures it appears that this company has sandwiched the fiberfill with a solid material that is very thin that has holes punched in it. It is through these holes that the vapor flows, terrific, but if there is solid fabric does not it prevent the vapor from escaping, and the answer is YES! I assume they will now say the material with the holes will stop the heat from getting out of the garment, but they are wrong.

Some of the moisture will go through the holes and most of the moisture will stay in the insulation. As such, the moisture will become an absorber of your heat, if you are wearing a garment made with this product and the end result will be that you get cold.

When I receive the sample I’ll have the information necessary to tell you if I am correct.
