My Locale Oregon and Washington
About Me I started hiking about 45 years ago. My first backpack was 40 years ago. I currently try to do one backpack trip of 5 nights every month (which can be tricky in the winter) 20 to 50 miles. Mostly I stay around Mount Hood, Columbia Gorge, Mount Adams, Goat Rocks, and the Olympic Peninsula. In recent years I have shifted to lightweight - my pack weight without food and water is about 15 lb (7 kg). I make a lot of my own gear - silnylon tarp-tent, bivy, synthetic bag, simple bag style pack. My sleeping pad is a Therm-a-Rest air mattress.

Re: First MYOG quilt. Do I need another?
Use it until you find some characteristic that's unacceptable. Like warm weather and cold weather. See if the width is okay. I you're unsure it's warm enough for a particular trip,...

Re: Bilateral asymmetry
But if it showed that treated down had no significant benefit, it would kill sales. Better to invest their money in slick advertising : )
