Scott (one of our members) sells lightweight 1.1 oz/sy breathable camo but it's not calendared and therefore not downproof. Here's the link...
Here is a UQ I made in 2007 when they were really 1/2 UQ's
It was similar to the fabric in the link above.
This thing went against all the "rules". Only 3 chambers and made from material that was not "downproof". I lost a couple feathers that was in the down but learned to just push them back in the quilt. High quality down will work in a variety of material due to low feather content.
The real problem with breathable fabric is the loss of heat when the wind blows. Calendared/Dwr fabrics block the wind better and help retain heat.
