Hi there !
I write from France and this is my first message on BPL, though I follow your helpful brainstormings from Paris since a long time now.
I need your help in order not to be banned directly after my first message !!!
Here's the situation : I'm currently making a first series of ultralight down comforter, which, thanks to its rectangular fit can be used as a quilt, as an under hammock insulation, and as a full body insulation (arms and head are protected, but not the legs of course !) once under a hooded jacket.
It weighs 580g including 350g of 860 cuin in size medium, with a 400g filling option, and 708g in size L with 430g 860cuin, optional 500g filling.
There's already been prototypes tested successfully from sea level to 3800m, and right now it's about to be tested - with a special tester's price - by 20 members of BPL's french little brother (not affiliated, just an expression). US testers would be welcome too !
To be precise my main job is journalist, I film reports about environment while moving with a prototype, electric (1500w), full suspension, cargo, foldable bike and sleeping under my self made silnylon 420g tent ! Selling comforters is a trial to get more money for auto producing the reports.
So, as I can be considered as a professionnal trying to make an add on this forum, I'd like to know what I'm supposed to do or not. Thanks for your advices !
