Quilt fill advice on 11/28/2010 16:06:42 MST Print View

Hey all! Had a thought about my quilt and was wondering what you guys think, or would suggest...

Made this summer quilt a while back. It weighs 12 ounces, full baffling, and is filled with 6 ounces of thru-hiker 850 down.

I was wondering if I distribute another ounce to ounce and a half of Thru-Hiker 900 fill into the upper half of the quilt, will it add any measurable degree of warmth? I figured that if I did this, and also wore a UL inner vest or inner jacket... I could take this thing comfortably down to the high 30's - low 40's... making it my summer + quilt. Bad idea?quilt

Alexander,

Nice looking piece of craftsmanship!

Yes, adding down to the upper baffles will increase the warmth. No doubt about it.

Thanks gents! Andy, I so don't want to make another one of these... which is why I would rather stuff a few more ounces in this one, than make a new 30 degree quilt ;)

"Would you be interested in making one for me?"

I can recommend Javan Dempsey. PM him to get started.
