Quilt Talk

Here at Cedar Ridge we offer many custom made products. Leading the way is our handmade, custom Quilts. As with all our products we take pride in the fact that we make everything by hand. What does that mean exactly? We don’t work from a pattern with our Quilts, each one is measured and cut by hand every time. We don’t use fancy gadgets on our sewing machine to speed production. Every part of our Quilts are made this way. All of our quilt use a box baffle design, with a combination of Vertical and Horizontal baffles to maximize warmth. We offer 2 different quilt options at this time, the LeConte line and the Fontana Line.
The LeConte line of Quilts is our highend and lighter quilt. It features a DWR coated M10 (10D Taffeta) inner and outer shell and 850 Fill, 100% White Goose Down. We do not use treated down as the chemicals they use take away some of the puff of the Down. We use that savings and give you more Down in your quilt. We feel this gives you a better product that will perform when you need it to.
The Fontana line of Quilts still offers the same quality at a cheaper price point. The Fontana Quilts feature DWR coated 1.0 HD (20D) outer shell and a DWR coated M10 inner shell in Black or Grey. The fill used in our Fontana is a 50/50 Blend of 850fp White Goose Down and 800fp Duck Down. We feel this offers our customers one of the best “budget” down fills available on the market. Our Down offers a higher Fill power than any of our competitors economic Down products.
We always strive to bring the best products we can at competitive prices. We offer many customizable options on our quilt such as OutdoorInk printed fabrics, pad straps, and even your choice of Stitching color. All you need to do is tell us. Please email us or call us with your questions.

Backwoods Lounger and 2.2 Hex70XL Ripstop

For our signature hammock, the Backwoods Lounger Hammock , we chose to use the 2.2 Hex70XL ripstop fabric, sourced from our friends at Ripstop By The Roll .  We feel this is a superior fabric and fits the bill for what we were trying to accomplish. We were looking to build a hammock that was tough as nails, offered a higher weight rating, while still offering a smooth, soft feel.

This fabric is a breathable fabric with a DWR finish.  It offers a high abrasion resistance and higher strength than the normal 1.0, 1.1, and 1.9 oz Ripstop. Why does this matter?  Well we wanted to offer a higher weight rating in single layer hammock.  This achieves two goals.  First it saves weight over comparable weight rated hammocks, other hammocks available in the market offer a similar weight rating but in a double layer hammock body. This usually adds up to about 3-3.5 oz/yd fabric.  We achieve the same weight rating in only 2.2 oz/yd.  Second we feel the thicker fabric offers a flatter lay in the hammock almost eliminating the dreaded calf ridge. We feel we have a great, simple hammock to offer to those looking for a comfortable hammock at that 400 lb weight rating while saving you every ounce we can in the pack. This hammock paired with its included cinch buckle suspension sets up in no time, minimizing your setup time in camp.

I presonnally use the 12′ version of the Backwoods Lounger and have tested it all over Tennessee.  I’ve slept many nights on the trail in this hammock and have welcome some time relaxing in this hammock after miles on the trail. I have been hard on this hammock and it has never let me down (no pun intended).
