    Version 2 is what I use. Super handy. About 2/3 full works like a charm for me.

    For me, my thought process was try and minimize fiddling as much as possible when I set up. So, I wanted to have as much as I can "already done".

    Agreed. I put a down throw wadded up in one of the saddlebags just in case.

    Still looking for my ideal set up. My first attempt was the Dutch CRL with a Wasp and Tato tarp connectors. Although they're not supposed to slide easily, they did for me making the tarp less than...
  6. Anyone have a couple extra Stingerz?

    I know a lot of you have extra DutchBling laying around. Anyone trying to unload two Stingerz? That's all I need at the moment and the shipping is still a decent amount.

    So obviously have had some extra time at home here recently, so I finally got around to doing this. I decided on a Karo Step 30" x 80" rectangular underquilt. After having had my first night out...

    Doesn't look like anyone is parting with anything. That will just have to force me to DIY. :) Dutch thanks you. Mods, you can close. Thanks.

    I don't need the width, more just the length. I'm 6'4" and about 180. Maybe I'll look into it and see. Given how little down seems to be in one throw, do the faux baffles really make it warmer? ...

    With the throws' sewn-through design, I think there's a bit of diminishing return (and someone else can correct me) to overstuff the throws much since they can only loft so high. I suppose I could...

    It happens to the best of us. Anyway the more I think about it, the more that my potential build would probably be similar in weight and compressed size to my 0 sleeping bag, so I might as well use...

    I was thinking about this route, but I'm trying to use the throws for a top quilt, not an underquilt, so the logistics of stuffing a Climashield layer in isn't quite as easy since it's not just a big...

    Do you think this would get down to 20 though? That's my goal. I already own the two throws, but then rethought things where I realized that one single layer quilt will never be effective enough...
  14. Costco Throw and Climashield Sandwich for a Top Quilt

    Hi Everyone,

    I've read a decent amount of threads about both CDTs and Climashield, but was just curious if anyone had made a top quilt consisting of a Costco throw on the bottom, a layer of...

    I use this one as well for squishing down sleeping bags (and soon quilts once I make mine). Always works great. I'd err on the side of the 30L since, once compressed, there's no reason not to have...

    Thanks for the replies. As far as the saving money thing, I know especially if you include time you're not going to save much, but all the 0 degree UQs I've seen have been around $350-$400. I can...
