My Locale So. Calif.
About Me I've been hiking since the 70's. Spent about 20 years in the outdoor retail end of things. I now help teach an outdoor training class with the Sierra Club. I'm a docent at a nearby Nature Center and a volunteer diver at the Aquarium of the Pacific. I like making my own gear.

Karo Baffles?
I wonder what it would be like to make a similar vest, but use Karo baffles. Easier to stuff would be one advantage. Just put all the down for each large section in at once. Scott
