Climashield Apex 2.5oz on 05/26/2012 22:29:56 MDT Print View

So I've been gathering materials for a warm weather quilt and I just received my 2.5oz Apex insulation from Thru-Hiker. Upon examining it, it seems to be much more thin in some areas and thicker in others. There is even a strip right through the middle where it looks like it's been seamed together or something. It just looks real patchy.

What I'm wondering is if this is just what the lighter Apex looks like, or did I get a bad piece, or am I just being overly critical?

Could someone please shed some light on this for me?

Mine I bought a couple weeks ago was like that also. Didn't have any problems using it in my quilt.

Very normal for that weight.

Sean, I too recently got 2 yds of the same 2.5 oz/sqyd Climashield Apex from thru-hiker just last week and noticed the same thing as what you describe. However, as evidenced by some of the post's here already, it looks like it is a normal thing. Also, with my limited history of ordering from Thru Hiker, as well as the many others that use his materials and praise his stuff, I feel like if it was not acceptable, he wouldn't have shipped it. Just my thoughts.

Anyway, good luck with your quilt!
