Help with adding hood to jacket on 02/04/2012 13:19:33 MST Print View

Guys
I posted this over at the Gear forum...but to no avail...

I have a Rab Generator jacket (primaloft1) and love it but want to add a hood. Am not a DIY guy so am looking for someone to do this custom work for me using 7D ~20D and PL1 or CSApex etc.

Can you guys recommend someone?

Mike

Tim @ Enlightened Equipment works with synthetic insulation and has done custom work in the past. Also try Ben @ Goosefeet, he does it all. There are others here more than capable of tackling your project, but the above are a start right off the top of my head.

Good luck.
