User Review: Wiggy's Super Light
Price Paid: $166
I purchased a Wiggy Ultima Thule less than a year ago. It was not very lofty when I got it out of the box. When I called Wiggy I was told that I must be mistaken about the loss of loft, because lamilite never loses its loft. I was assured that if I washed it the loft would come back. It didn't.
On the Backpacker Trail Talk Forum I observed how Jerry Wigutow used the information he had on another customer to stalk him down. He then published his name and address when he wanted posted a derogatory report on his bag and wanted a replacement bag. Since then the poor guy has gotten obscene phone calls and no end threats and harassment from Jerry. I am due to deploy soon so I can't risk pushing the issue. I won't be here in the States to protect my family from the obscene phone calls that seem to beset anyone who says bad things about Jerry's stuff if he knows who you are.
Some customers seem to get a good bag, but if you get a bad one you don't dare do anything about it for fear of seeing your personnel file all over the Internet. In talking to Jerry I am absolutely convinced he has no conscience and can justify anything he does in his own mind.
Unless you are willing to take a chance on the mood Jerry is in, or the quality of his bag that day, I would recommend you buy something else. His sleeping bags, attitude and service are a tremendous disappointment. What kind of a sleeping bag manufacturer goes after a soldier's family if he says bad things about his product?
