New Sleeping Bags on 04/05/2013 17:48:29 MDT Print View

I will be making my purchases for my new company very soon.
My main objective is for 2 children's sleeping bags, a 25* and 40* bag.

Now I am really taking another look at this as parents just don't seem to spend money on their kids.

So now I am thinking about making the 40* kids bag, but also a 40* adult bag.
I know there are a lot of people who just love sleeping bags.
I am thinking of a 62" chest bag with a max height of 6'2".
I would love to make a sub 1 pound bag, but that would be $300+ with the lightest fabric and 900 fill.

So I am looking at a lighter and cheaper (better) version of a Marmot Atom with about 10 ounces of down.
I will also take custom size orders (for a small fee) for the big, tall, and just plain custom.

Any thoughts?

You may want to try to get a soure for DWR treated down like "Dri-Down" to enhance the usefuleness of, say, a winter down bag.
