The Katahdin Quilt is a beautiful, lightweight, comfortable and functional quilt. It surpasses any expectations that I had about this product. Jack at Jack's R Better worked closely with me to help me evaluate the materials and construction process to best match them to my need.
I am severely chemically sensitive and intolerant of many fabrics, so buying a new sleeping quilt was a very daunting project. Jack supplied me with samples of almost all the materials and talked me through the manufacture process so that I could realistically evaluate whether or not it would work for me.
He then helped me choose the right bag for me given my body size, planned use, etc. I feel extremely pleased with my bag, and the support that I received from Jack's R Better!
I also enjoy the fact that this product can be considered quite ecofriendly and chemically safe. The DWR fabric is constructed with manipulating the fabric rather than adding chemicals. And it uses down, which is free of petrochemicals.
