So I have an old 2 pound Gerry down bag (actually we have 2, one with a blown zipper and one still usable).
This is a mummy bag, baffled construction.
Tell me if my wacky idea will work:
I have lots of time and no spare cash so I am thinking that if I took the bag apart along the side seam, undid the seam from the bottom of the zipper to the footbox, removed the round bottom of the foot box, (arrows on pic) and leveled off the top of the bag (removing the hood), I ought to be able to re-assemble it with one of the two halves reversed, giving me a rectangular slab of downy goodness aprox 48" by 66". And that was one very loooong sentence.
I'd use this on my eno-type double wide hammock.
I anticipate down everywhere since I suspect the side seam is really a baffle with more down in it.
Any tips for removing down from baffles?
Is this going to be an OK size for an UQ?
(I LIKE taking things apart)
