Re: i've always really liked this bag
Richard, I spoke with them about this (drawcord) and, if I remember correctly, was told they would. I don't remember why I chose not to though. Perhaps it was more $ than I wanted to spend, ...

Re: Nice bag!
Thanks, Stephen & Katy. Re FF custom work, yes, I agree. Also, I don't know if I caught them at a slow time or what but they had it to me within 2 wks. Re the ounces of fill, I'...

Re: foot
Is it baffled or sewn through? Is there a draw cord around the circumference? (I'm thinking this could be a great kids bag if it could be drawn up around their neck for a seal)

Re: Anyone have the Buck Hartsook Ultralight....or Boker Grasshopper knife?

Custom 20 oz Feathered Friends Vireo with 6"+ loft.
