Slept out in my double bag last night near the Arctic Circle, plus 15-degrees so no problem. Going to buy another bag that doesn’t zip together, XL long and wide instead the regular size (way too tight). Vest working well, wear it on patrol all the time. Wore Wiggy’s mittens last night to keep my hands warm. Wish I discovered Wiggy’s 30-years ago. Mr. W., Don’t go gentle into that good night…


Many thanks for your story, not going so fast.

Hi Jerry, congratulations on being still able to work every day. I’m still working full-time and I agree about the value of having something productive to focus on, vice wasting away in “retirement.”

I just read the liner comments from “GLJ” (doubtless that stands for Great Liner Jacket and aren’t the writer’s initials). I fully agree with him/her about the added value that would result from putting patch pockets on the liner. It may annoy you, but I’ll confess that when I couldn’t convince you to add pockets to the liner, I bought the liner and then bought a few yards of Cordora and had my local seamstress add the pockets (copying the dimensions of the pockets on my Sweater). It came out great, and I’ve been enjoying the results for about five years now. Having the pockets makes the liner much more useful when worn alone and doesn’t interfere in any way with using the liner as a liner under other outerwear. Cheers, John Conley

John, not annoying. I am only glad the garment performs for you.

When I decided to end making the arctic parkas and a few others I chose to keep the liner garments as well as the sweater because they are easy to make and perform so well particularly the sweater for so many years.

One reader wrote to me about a material that was available in the early sixty’s called “REEVAIR” which I knew all about. It was made by a textile mill, Reeves Brothers. The sold lots of fabric to raincoat manufacturers and therefore they introduced their reevair to them. All it was a coated fabric with a ½ ounce urethane, just like gore used to stabilize their Teflon film. A number of other companies also used or still use the ½ ounce urethane coating so they call their product waterproof and breathable. If in fact it where Reeves Brothers would be in business selling the reevair to the world of jacket manufacturers.

Well, they are not, why because it did not work!!!!!!!

I sincerely believe the time has come where people are slowing down their purchases of the bogus waterproof breathable story.
