Taco 3.0 is now in production! More wall specific features, more adjustability, fits BIGGER pads! Current shipping time is 4-6 weeks for the Red Ripstop Nylon Taco, and 2-4 weeks for the Ultragrid Taco. These products are made to order and produced in Tacoma, Washington.
The Taco incorporates the ability to fit most commercially available inflatable pads from 20”-25” Wide and 72”-76” long. It features durable urethane coated fabrics, simple and EASILY REPAIRABLE and field serviceable construction. Ultralight nylon webbing, and an adjustable side to account for slabs, sloping ledges, or fully hanging bivies. Horizontal baffles will perform better vertical baffled pads, but are still functional and usable. 
The third generation of Taco Portaledge has arrived. Developed more for the Big Wall climber in mind, the Red Ripstop Taco is updated with several key features:
      -Added daisy chains to center
     -Added two optional tension points per side, further tailoring your comfort
     -Upgraded full encapsuation of end of pad.
     -Bottom fabric tubes for optional "push bars"
     -Optional change to Patented Rollercam buckle (adds 1oz)
Here is an in-depth review, with setup and usage videos from my friends Sam and Lani at their new guiding service website ' They also offer big wall courses if you need guidance getting somewhere to use your Taco!
