    I have it in both my quilts, and a layer of insultex. I highly recommend it, as it adds to warmth quite a bit. I have used it in down to near zero conditions. Have never had any condensation problems.

    Target has down pillows, $60. I looked at them, and, it is really pretty light in weight, for the volume, doesn't seem to have hardly any 'feather' content. For the price, not bad.
