lucmorley, you started at the right place. I see you are new to the forums.
The first thing I would do If I were you would be to check out the DIY section of the forums. There are posts from members in that section that describe how they tackled the same dilemma.
Lots of folks have made underquilts from military poncho liners or old sleeping bags. There are even some good ideas being shared in the DIY section on inexpensive materials that are available to add as layers in order to increase the temp rating of the UQ, etc.
Best of luck! Having a quest for better gear and figuring out how to solve it with the time and resources available is what makes Hammock Forums a great place to visit!
It looks like you have 3 Jo-Ann Fabric and Crafts stores in your area and there's a major AF base there. Between the two sources you should be able to put together a great UQ. The fabric store will knowmsome ladies or gents that sew.
I've wondered, and some here may have the answer, whether miliary surplus bags have a lot of feathers in them.
