For the rest of you, I still may make a few more bags as I have done a lot of research into this. The only thing with not getting into the 7-8k start up for this is the prices are 3x more.
If anyone else is interested, let me know
I will not be going into production with my children sleeping bags.
There has not been enough interest to pull the trigger on the start up cost.
I have made this 1 mock-up that has $200 in material alone.
Here is the info on it.
Selling the one and only bag for $190 shipped.
I will only take a cashiers check for payment.
This a 20 ounce bag and a little over 5 1/2" of loft (even a little more in the foot), good for 20-25*.
I had someone stay the night in it and he had no idea that you could cinch the head down (and didn't even use the hood).
He started to get getting cold at 28* with sweats and a long sleeve shirt on.
Fabric 1 ounce fabric and 800 fill.
Height is up to 55" as that is the average height for an 11 year old.
The bag does tapper yet there is a little more room in the foot area for wiggle room.
The dimensions on length and width are off a 63" girth bag.
It will be a little tight for an 11 year old who is bigger (more upper girth) than average.
The fabric is the super soft and strong for it's weight and has a very good water repellency.
