Quilting Primaloft One on 12/12/2011 14:37:58 MST Print View

I have some primaloft one. I know it must be quilted, but I do not know how far apart the quilting needs to be. Does anyone know the distance?
Thanks

Primaloft own recommendations for PL1 are:
3" centres for 60 gsm and 6" for greater than 60gsm.
Clothing I have is quilted in vertical channels rather than square

Thank you! I have the 100 g/m variety, so that means I need to go with six. Have you noticed any problems with only having vertical channels? I was thinking about doing just horizontal.

not sure it matters?
My wifes Patagonia micropuff vest is horizontal .
nb they only appear to have the PL quilted to the inner face fabric. the outer faces are loose except at seams...

Thank you for your help. When you say quilted do you mean sewn? I have a nano puff from Patagonia and it is sewn through. I don't see any quilting loops.
