Edit/Approval - Nunatak Arc Specialist - Ray Estrella
Thanks for keeping Nunatak's count up on BGT. Very helpful photos as always. Here are your edits; after revising you're cleared to post at http://tinyurl.com/3ys3qto and delete your Tests/OR folder copy.

<<The Arc Specialist has quickly become my favorite back-country sleeping device.>>
Edit: Elsewhere you use the customary "backcountry," one word.
<< While the cost is a bit exorbitant the ends justifies the means as far as I am concerned.>>
EDIT: the end justifies the means [or the ends justify the means]
Edit: A suggestion only, but I'd change "exorbitant" to "steep" or "high." "Exorbitant" implies too high, which I believe contradicts your intended meaning.
<<I had them make my quilt with the main outer shell from 1 oz (29 g) Pertex Quantum fabric.>>
EDIT: Delete the conversion. To make it accurately you'd have to get gram/square meter, requiring another tricky conversion, and ounces/square yard is something of a universal measurement (like liters for bottles).
<< As I tend to sleep coldaround my chest and arms >>
EDIT: cold around [two words]
< As a toss and turn side sleeper I found that sleeping bags, made to be most efficient for back sleepers, just did not work well for me>>
Edit: toss-and-turn [with hyphens]
<<The trip shown above saw a huge thunder storm hit in the evening. I awoke to high winds blowing water inside >>
Edit: thunderstorm [one word]
<<By the time I met Dave and hicked 20 miles (32 km) to Dove Springs for the night the quilt's shell was a bit soggy feeling.>>
EDIT: hiked 20 miles
Edit: soggy-feeling [hyphen]
<< I just spread the Specialist (and my down sweater) in the grass as seen below and it quickly dried out. The Tyvek TT Sublite it was used in that night is not visible though >>
EDIT/Edit: Did you intend a photo of the down items drying out? If so I think you omitted it. Please add the photo or revise the text.
<<This one will be lighter yet and not something they have on the site but
made to my specs.>>
Comment: Made lighter by using Eider down? Seriously, I look forward to the Estrella special. I'm considering a custom Back Country Blanket (no Eider) that's wide enough for my shoulders.
- Thank you very much Richard, all edits made and suggestions taken.
Yeah, if I ever win the lotto I am going to have Tom make me a couple Eider pieces. I will email you and tell you about my special request quilt.
- Ray, your listing of the manufacturer's website is still not clickable. Better fix before someone gets the wet noodle out.

- OK, it really IS fixed now. (Good grief, I are an editor and mentor. don't do as me do...)
Well I bit the bullet today and bought the kids quilts as they love mine. Now little Ray doesn't need to take mine.
(No not Nunataks, just can't swing that. 2nd gen GoLites. Watch for a kid review after summer.)
