keeping warm
Heck, I thought it was an ethical improvement to just use the possum's down, instead of the possum, to cover my hands. I must admit though that not having the entire possum on my hand improved...

The Blizzard is very interesting but it is in no way breathable. It weighs 13.5 ounces, so it's not exactly UL. The MLD Spirit quilt, size regular, is 12 ounces in the 48 deg version and 17 o...
