All I had to do was make a little comment like "It makes you look like a little tree" and now I have a long puffy down coat. I have searched the forums for converting coats to UQ's, but have only found jackets, presumably to be also worn. My intent is to do an arm-ectomy and see how the shape fits. I think the arms will make pretty good draft collars. I was unable to find any feedback on how peoples jacket conversions came out, but I think using a coat is a natural as it should break wind and insulate. I don't anticipate 0 degrees, but figure on 30 anyway. Am I thinking too much? Should I wait a bit before I start cutting and slashing the coat?
