PBP Episode 18 - Jacks 'R' Better

PBP Episode 18 - Jacks 'R' Better


Quote:
This episode features an interview that I conducted with Jack Tier and Jack Myers. Jack and Jack are longtime friends and co-owners of the Virginia-based manufacturing company: Jacks 'R' Better.

The company specializes in lightweight down quilts for weight-conscious backpackers. Listen in to learn about the down, fabric, and thoughtful ingenuity that is used to make their versatile backcountry sleep systems.

Very informative podcast. Full of Jacks R Better product information that is not thoroughly explained / made apparent on their website. Served as a very good model comparison guide.

Finally got home where I could download #18. This was probably the most useful one yet for me. Best use for my Ipod yet too.
I experimented with a Hennessey Hammock many times last summer. I just could not keep warm enough when the temp fell below 50 F.
Now I will definately order an underquilt in early spring.

Keep them coming!
