I think I am going to convert my EMS Mountain Light 20 down bag into a TQ. The conversion should be pretty easy. I will measure the width to match HG’s width, shake all the down to one side, sew up the down free side, and repeat for the other side. That should essentially overfill the remaining TQ. I am not sure what the ratings would be, but it would be the same amount of down that was in the original bag but in a smaller, lighter TQ. I will also remove the hood…I am not sure what I will do with that yet… But, I will put a channel in the neck and put a shock cord with a cord lock on it and find some snaps to put on the corners just like the HG TQ. Once all of the seams are sewn, I want to roll hem all of them.
What do you think of the plan? Any opinions, ideas, suggestions from those who have done this before would be appreciated.
