    Questions for you if you don't mind?
    Can you make one sleeve slimmer than the other. ie because I do archery and hate it when the sleeve gets in the way.
    Does it have to be so roomy, i know it has to be a bit over sized because it goes over the head but not sure by how much?
    Cheers..

    He makes them specific to the measurements you supply, not sure about the uneven arms though, measurements required are chest from pit to pit, from neck to the length of garment at hem and arm length from pit to cuff, for myself i measured my biggest item of clothing as i know at that size it will be perfect for going over the top of everything when needed

    I'm liking this thread loads

    Each one is a little different and amazing

    But I'd like a flash cold day please so I can try it proper

    Oh, please make a bright orange one. I'm going through an orange addiction and need to see that.

    I've got one of these blankets and love it. Whilst it's not as soft as some of the poncey 'officers' blankets (which are not for the likes of us), it isn't really scratchy, it's really warm, and woven like it's kevlar, i.e. really tough and water resistant. Ideal for a cozy bushcraft shirt. I for one will be saving my pennies to get one of these if they are made from this material.

    They look amazing by the way Twodogs.

    Regards,
    Matt.

    That is one way to stop things getting lost in the bush, until i seen that image i was quite content with just an orange knife, although i would stand the risk of losing it all in my living room

    Wow, it won't be long before I give in to the temptation of a red one!

    Are the red blankets of comparable thickness to the white army blankets?

    I must have looked at this thread about 12 times over the last 24 hrs. I am very tempted would be ideal for scout camps as well as in the woods, just I have not got the funds this side of my Holiday :(

    A truly great service provided, you don't get this when you buy a Nike hoody thats for sure, kudos my friend, huge meteoric chunks of it raining down on you, the two tone action is very pleasing to me
