      Can someone explain to me how we can get 20+ applications in for a
      cold weather sleeping bag like the Valandre Shocking Blue but not one
      of those people (including myself) to apply for a winter hat? Are we
      saying that we go out in sub-freezing conditions, but nobody wears a
      hat? There's no winter hat that we're testing at the moment, hence
      my confusion as to why there's only one taker for this hat.

      Now, as I said, I didn't apply either. Why? Because I was very busy
      last week and knew I'd have to extend this test call due to a lack of
      interest anyway - look for an app from me in the next few days in
      this very cool product.

      I will admit, it's not the most stylish item out there. But, you'd
      be hard pressed to convince me that the backwoods in the dead of
      winter is some sort of a singles-bar. What BGT is interested in,
      amongst other things, is if this hat is warm. I would think that any
      of the Valandre applicants, in addition to those who were selected to
      test any of the other FIVE sleeping bags that we called, would be
      well suited to test this hat.

      I look forward to seeing participation in this test increasing ten-
      fold in the next few days.
