I am currently working on a 2nd mock up of my bag.
I have made so many changes. Not really changes of the look, but more the steps in the making process.
I was thinking about giving them to my brother's kids as a gift, but I already made them sleeping bags (just a little bigger than their current size) at age 6 and 7.
My brother just never takes them out camping (his lose).
So I will more than likely be selling the prototypes to anyone wishing to purchase one.
The one I am currently working on is being made using Schoeller Nanosphere.
I was thinking about going the Nanosphere route, but I found a fabric that I actually like better. It's softer, lighter, (almost) as water resistant, and breathes better.
The fabric is very similar to M90 but a tiny bit lighter and has a much softer fell. It is also a very high T strength and is so strong that I have no worries about it not being a ripstop. I tested the fabric after testing a few ripstop fabrics on their ability to "stop" a rip after it starts and the higher T strength makes it even a little harder to rip (in any way shape or form) over the ripstops.
Even with the new fabric being that good someone who lives in wet conditions may want to go for the Nanosphere prototype.
Once I receive the bulk product, I will be making 4 bags, 2 of each color and temp rating for demoing. Then it will be a few months before sales actually start. I want to pump out at least 50-100 bags and have the process down packed before I start selling them.
Let me know if you are interested in purchasing the 2 prototypes and I will PM you the info and price. They will both be the 25* bags (see specs in the posts above).
I will have a 40* prototype bag available shortly after.
