DIY Quilt? on 11/09/2009 23:12:27 MST Print View

I have an REI Sub Kilo +20 Sleeping bag that I am contemplating cannibalizing to make two under quilts for my wife and I. The bag has 14oz of 750 fill down. Good idea or bad idea? I could also try to sell the bag and put the money towards UQs. I was looking at the down under quilt at thru-hiker as a reference to go by.

I'd sell it, and buy down. 800 fill down is only $8 oz.

You can buy 750 down here for $16.00 for 3 oz shipped.

Kookabay is forum member Bender Newbie's site. You can follow the development of the lightweight pads in the thread below.

I ordered a custom pad and received it in something like 3 days, so I'm guessing he would deliver down very quickly and reliably.

I ordered the pillow from Kookabay and the delivery was very fast. He even offered to modify it free of charge if I sent it back to him.

I don't know anything on the quality of the down, but the quality of the pillow was top notch.

I wouldn't have a second though about buying from him again.
