Well, anonymous, I now know your feelings about PETA but am not sure how you feel about the plucking of live geese. For those who are curious about the practice, just Google "live plucking" as I did before my last post. If you are PETA-phobic, just ignore PETA related posts. Reading about live plucking may or may not influence your next choice of sleeping bag or insultated jacket but it's something to think about.

Anonymous, (or is it Erasorhed? By the way, loved the movie about you) come in from the cold. If you need help, just scroll down and read the thread about posting anonymously.

actually dondo ,you can call me" fois gras lover".
I can lose sleep over genocide in the Sudan or
environmental degradation in my local mountains
( issues I'm very much involved in)---but goose plucking or force feeding geese or eating them (I engage in all 3 practices directly or indirectly)--I don't think so.

No reason to lose sleep. Just something to possibly factor in next time you choose a sleeping bag.
