    Anybody havd experience with this place? They have 800 FP for as low as $5.50 an once. Seems like a decent price (I think)

    Prices do look good but I preferr not to order from a web site that does not have an address and or phone #. Having to email someone and hope they reply does not cut it IMO.

    I saw yesterday that wilderness logic has their 850+ at about $6.50 per oz, if memory serves, and I'd bet a lot of folks here could vouch for their product. I'd spend the extra 8-10 bucks to know where it comes from and know it's what they claim it is.
    Just my 2 cents

    I just ordered 9 ounces of the down from Wilderness Logics to fill the shell I bought from Lost_Biker. Great, very quick service. Good product - they package in 1 ounce bags which made filling the quilt super easy. I'd definitely recommend them.

    I bought my down at Thru-Hiker the one time I ever did a down project and got good down. I just checked and they are selling 900 fill at about $10 per ounce http://thru-hiker.com/materials/insulation.php

    I trust AYCE at thru-hiker.

    I missed the no longing taking orders thing. Thanks. Also thanks for the Wilderness Logic tip. I'm just trying to find sources.

    I just got 14 ounces of 850 FP down from Wilderness Logics right before Christmas. Incredibly, it was delivered only 3 days after I placed the order.

    I've heard several folks on BPL have good experiences w/downbythepound. None personally though.
