We received this report from one of our customers who has put a lot of use on his gear.
Of all the things I am upgrading this year, like hammocks, tarps and suspensions, there are two pieces of gear that will not be needing an upgrade; my Owyhee and New River quilts.
And to quantify his comments above is a layer of raw Climashield APEX Insulation, the same that goes into every one of our quilt...this is right off the production line, with about a 1/2 ounce of water pooled right on the insulation. The Climashield APEX insulation is hydrophobic, so water does not actually absorb into the insulation fibers. While water could collect between the individual fibers it won't absorb into them so drying your quilt out, should you get into a situation like the customer above, will take very little time and you will still get outstanding performance back immediately.
