IMO, Taylor IS an expert on bags
Posted by bushrat on May 01 2006

I don't know anyone more knowledgeable here about sleeping bag manufacturing techniques, materials, parameters etc than Marc Taylor. I think he has forgotten more than you or I will ever know on the subject. He doesn't claim to be an "expert" on the subject, but I'd say he is. Therefore, I hereby bestow upon him the title of "Expert on Sleeping Bags," which I'm sure he won't like <grin>, but if that's what it takes then so be it.

Taylor happens to sell Wiggy's bags. My family has used the -30 Wiggy's bags for seven years now. The kids and I camp in winter with them on the trapline, let the fire go out at night. They work well, dry quickly in the morning from any condensation. They are a great bag for a fair price. I know very few members of this forum that do the amount of winter camping we do, so I think that is a good testament to the fact that these bags work well.

This forum isn't a competition, is it? You said: "Of course we are educating each other on sleeping bags! I hope we always will. That's one of the reasons I continue participating in this forum. I've learned a lot, and have shared a lot of what I've learned here."

Why not let others like Marc share what they've learned and leave it at that? No need for "reinforcement" that is disguised as something else entirely.
