    Used Down Underquilt, or DIY Gemini Underquilt Setup or 2-3 Costco Down Throws

    Hello Forum,
    I am located in Germany and search for a down underquilt solution which is packable and lightweight for bikepacking. It should be primarily for 2-3 season camping for use in temps until 45F. Usually 55F is the lowest temp i find comfortable without UQ.
    Since I am on a budget I am looking for:

    a) a used Down Underquilt (a dedicated underquilt might be too expensive but maybe i can afford a used one?)
    b) DIY Gemini Underquilt Setup or similar
    c) 2-3 Costco Down Throws (i would also like to build a Gemini Setup..) If i am correct it is sold with two different brand names: Double Black Diamond Packable Down Throw or Blue Ridge Packable Down Throw

    There are nearly no offers for down underquilts here in Germany and also no site where I can buy the Costco Down Throw.
    I was hoping, maybe somebody has some 2nd gear laying around and was willing to ship it to a helpless Hammockeer in Germany..
    It would be amazing if somebody could help me out!!
    Thanks to all and the forum!!

    There is one for sale in the FS section.
    Get lost in the woods and find yourself again. A vacation,to me, is working with your hands and surviving because of the fruits of your labor. In the business world I teach;in the natural world I learn.

    Not sure about shipping to you though.. if you want to explore the idea, PM me.

    Still looking? If so you may want to bump it at least once every week. Items that are inactive are subject to being removed from the Market Place area, it allows members to know you are still interested and it will keep the moderators from "pinging" you! (Bumps mean to respond in the post)
