I had never sewn outdoors equipment before, but I do know my way around a Singer. The instructions were clear and the materials were top notch. The quilt I made from 3.5 Climashield and 1.1 ripstop was plenty to keep my bum toasty on a recent trip with night time temps in the high 30s to low 40s. There was enough material left over to make a hood, booties, and few stuff sacks. The project gave me a ton of confidence in my sewing and I am totally hooked! I will be making my own gear from now on.
Way cool project! My first under quilt and I love it. Pretty straight forward instructions, took me half a Saturday.
This is a great kit that goes together easily, even will little sewing experience and knowledge. It took longer to figure out how to thread the machine than put this under quilt together and it turned out great. Kept me plenty warm on a late October BWCA trip with temps in the low 20's. Will definitely look to try other kits you have in the future.
Great Kit! The directions were clear and easy to follow. I made a few changes where I saw fit and everything worked out. I’m planning on taking it for a test hang this weekend!
My wife got me the kit for my birthday -- 1.1oz Moroccan Blue calendered, 1.1oz Blaze Orange uncalendered, and APEX 10 oz/sq. I initially couldn't find the pattern, so was a little frustrated. Once I found the pattern, everything clicked, and I put my thread injector to good use. The PDF pattern was easy to follow. Plenty of leftover material, so I also made a stuff sack, and there's still enough left that I'll be able to make neck and knee pillows.
