Initial Impressions of the Enigma Quilt.


 Yesterday, I recieved my long awaited quilt from @enlightenedequipment . I ordered my Enigma quilt, from @trailandera.  I purchased this quilt, because  I was tired of freezing my tail off while, hiking  on colder trips. My 30 degree quilt wasn’t cutting it, when  temps dipped down to the teens. So I ordered a enlighted equipment enigma quilt.

Initial Impression

My initial impressions of this quilt went over and above in quality. I was blown away with the superior craftsmanship and attention to detail on this quilt. Their are no flaws in the stitching of the quilt and the construction. Before I purchased this quilt, I read every review I possibly could. After getting my hands on this quilt, I’m not disappointed at all. I plan on putting this quilt to good use this winter. When my testing is complete, I will do a complete review.

Customer Service

Let me talk about @trailandera whom I purchased the quilt from.  Trailandera’s customer service, is definitely  there for the consumer. They really valued my business and when I had questions about my order it was answered immidiatley. When the order was fulfilled I recieved a personal email  letting me know the current status of my order. I truly value excellent customer service in a business and I will be a customer for life! 

Note: I’m not an employee  nor am I an Ambassador for @trailandera or @enlightenedequipment just a very satisfied customer.

Thanks for Reading!
