I have a HH Exped/Asym with a bottom opening. I don't know whether to have my wife make an UQ out of a rectangular down sleeping bag resewn with shock cords and clips $, purchase a new one......ouch $$$, or get a HH/SS.....ouchish$$.
I know that there are many threads on this, but is it really that hard to put one together out of a sleeping bag? Has anyone has success with this plan? What about protecting the bottom of the UQ from the weather? Any plans out there?
I live in WNY and camp with the Boy Scouts all year long. I don't want to go to ground during our Klondike Derby any more so it has to handle the cold.
