I have a Thermarest tech blanket. Specs are pretty good, 80" long by 58" wide. It has about 19 baffles already sewn...my question is would a pound of 850 down make this a viable UQ to get me down into the single digits?
Thanks for any response.
I am not very familiar with the make up of this blanket. From a quick Google search, it seems thinner than most under quilts. Which is fine. The taller baffled under quilts typically uses less than a pound of down. More, of course, for colder weather. A pound in your blanket may over stuff it, you want that stuff to be able to loft up and not be compressed.
Check out the PLUQ option also:
It may help with some ideas w/the blanket.
