As per GlacierRambler's suggestions on a separate thread, I'm interested in cutting open a recently acquired Kooka Bay mummy pad (http://cache.backpackinglight.com/backpackinglight/user_uploads/1357712665_738)and filling it with Cimashield or some other insulating material.
Having never done this before, I'm curious about the process, and am interested in any feedback/experience folks have.
From what I understand, I can just snip off the end, fill it with insulation, then seal it with a hot iron? Yes?
A few questions:
How hot does the iron need to be? Should I use any other adhesive?
What weight of Climashield should I be going for - 5 oz or 2.5 oz? I don't often camp in extreme conditions, but I do use a smallish quilt so I get cold.
