800+ Fill power down for $5.50 an ounce @ DownByThePound.com on 11/13/2011 08:40:03 MST Print View

Hi Yall,

After finding a source for really cheap ultralight fabric, I found a source for cheap down.

I am selling it at my new website DownByThePound.com. I am offering both 700 and 800 fill power down.

if you need a lot of down, like i will shortly, and don't mind the extra weight, this beats thru-hiker by quite a bit. I am planning a 5deg down quilt, a 45deg quilt and maybe some down booties and a down hat. If i buy two pounds of down, it ends up at $5 an oz, thru-hiker's is $10. Admittedly, if you buy their quilt kit, its not as expensive, but for a 5deg quilt, i could go with thru-hiker and save 2oz, or with this site, and save $40, which makes sense to me (college student).

I just put in an order for 6 ozs. At $5.50/ounce I figure it's worth trying some out on my next project. Thanks~

Maybe it's time to put down a 120 pound order. Then it only come to $2.65 an ounce, (cheapest I've found 800 fill).

The down was indeed shipped to you. I mistaken sent you the wrong tracking number. You should receive the down today or tomorrow.
