I appreciate that but I really would like to get it to 3 weeks or less as the wait is a barrier for many. Not sure how fast something that is basically custom made for you should take but enough people think that my waif is too long that I am trying to bring it down. At least im not at the 12 weeks I was when doing it myself!

I'm happy waiting for what I believe will be a quality custom product from you. :) But, I do agree with you that a 3 week wait time is a good goal to reach. I think that's a good wait time considering the custom nature of the product and I think it will drive in more business for you. just my thoughts.

I'd love to see some additional non-commercial photos of the Revelation quilts. Who has some?

Thanks!

Those pics are making me drool. Can't wait until mine gets here! :) Yesterday was the 1 month mark, if it gets here by the middle of next week, there's a possibility I'll take it out next weekend (though, it'll be unnecessarily warm with the weather we've had)

My quilt has arrived and I am definitely satisfied with my purchase. I ordered the 30 degree Revelation with overfill and it came in exactly at the estimated weight of 22 oz. Cords to cinch the quilt around me would add .5 oz for all 3. It is hard to believe the loft this thing has! It may be too warm...

Heath,
You can adjust the down to accommodate different temps; at least in theory. I haven't tried it yet. Lay the quilt flat and pat the down in the direction you want to move it. I can literally move almost all of the down out of the center baffles in 20 seconds, and have it all back in another 20. It's kinda cool, actually.

That is cool! I liked the idea of karo baffles when I was looking at different models of quilts. I really think that I made a good decision with this quilt. I'll know at the end of the month :)

Sad part is that I was able to open the box, weigh the quilt, and of course test out the size. After that, I had to head to the airport. Oh well. At least it didn't arrive after I left and then I had to wonder for a few more days

It's been 2 days since we've heard from said hairy kilt wearing creature. You think he's locked in a padded room saying quilt, quilt, quilt, where is my quilt!

Just a quick unsolicited ad for Tim's products - my Epiphany K has now seen almost 50 nights in the field, all the way down to zero many times, and I have been thrilled with it. It is absolutely a 'go to' part of my gear, and I'm one VERY satisfied customer.

Thanks Tim-

So glad we can provide designs that do what nothing else can do. And wicked happy when they work the way we know they can for you guys out in the field. Dave's epiphany-k is exactly the same as our current epiphany incase anyone was wondering which of the 3 generations he was referring to.

I really only need to scrounge like 75 more dollars to purchase one of these bad boys. You don't anticipate any cease in production anytime soon eh?

Can't wait to sleep like a king.

Cease in production, nope. Those days are behind us. That was when I was working alone doing everything and when I got overwhelmed I'd have to take a break from orders to catch up. Now we have a large team working every day to build quilts at a rate I never could have. I did 120 quilts the two years before the Sanborn merge in oct. since then weve had over 200 orders and are currently shipping at about 4 weeks out (unless your name rhymes with RAT HAIRY). So no, our production won't be stopping any time soon, as long as I am still alive is all it takes at this point.
