We have rounded the final turn, whippin’ and spurrin’ our way to the finish line! Well, that’s a little dramatic. We are close… all of our fabrics are ordered. We have begun production on several sku’s and I am told that our website WILL be live by next Friday.
Here’s a photo with a couple of things that I hope will be of interest to you.
First, the fabric swatches at the front are the heavy flannel we are using for the sheet sets. Instead of using elastic, our sheets are constructed using shock cord and cord locks. The sheets are patterned large so that if you want to add a 1" topper the sheets can handle the extra height. The shock cord and cord locks allow for a good fit either way. Not shown is the fleece sheet sets. We are making these in Burgundy and Green using the same large pattern as the flannel.
Second, the bag you see with part of my blue down sleeping bag sticking out is an oversized Stuff-N-Throw Pillow. It is constructed of a mil spec, waterproof material with a fleece panel oversewn. This allows us to use our sleep gear during the day as a throw pillow (down is a pretty awesome fill) with out risk of getting it dirty or damaging it. I can tell you… I love using my set of Stuff-N-Throw Pillows to prop up against when I’m hanging out down below in cabana mode. I will never apologize for enjoying comfort!
I’ll post a few more photos in the next couple of days of the other gear we are rolling out. We have designed a Ladder Bag that doubles as a Boot Bag which is cool and very functional. The Winter Insulation Kit is coming along nicely. Sorry, I’m not going to be rushing it. When we roll it out it’s going to be awesome! There is a handful of other gear that we have been getting ready to introduce, too.
I’ve been camping out of the back of a truck since I was a teenager. Now… I’m an “overlander”
Getting “out there” is more important than Gear. But good gear can certainly make it more enjoyable!
Have a great weekend…
