Before Kickstarter we had small-scale sales which were crucial to the development of our products, in particular our blanket. We took to Kickstarter to release our blanket on a larger scale and continue to get feedback to perfect the blanket.
We are happy to say that we have had encouraging feedback (as we had hoped/expected) on the blanket, but we are always looking for ways to improve it. Over the past year we’ve had a number of emails roll in telling us what users like about the blanket, but only a few about how we can improve.
“We can do things the cheap way, the simple way, for the short-term and without regard for the future. Or, we can make the extra effort, do the hard work, absorb the criticism and make decisions that will cause a better future.” - M. Rounds
These emails prompted further investigation of sleeping bag/quilts/hammock stuff sacks from well-known brands. While we believe our traditional stuff sacks have been good, we found there may be better methods out there. So we took action-
Starting today, we are excited to offer the (s)Tuff sack in addition to our current blankets in our online store. In the future it is our goal to include a (s)Tuff sack with our new blanket models.
While it may seem excessive to write 5+ paragraphs about a compression sack, it represents something larger. We strive to improve our products detail by detail and we are receptive to every email with ideas on how to do that. We’re thankful for the feedback we’ve received thus far and we look forward to continue to perfect our products. We want to offer products were proud of, and products you are proud to use!
So thanks for your continued support and we look forward to hitting the trails again with you soon.
