    You might be surprised. at least half my gear is DIY. I just don't post about it, I use it

    So how does the UP TQ compress down compared to a down TQ of the same temp rating?

    I was going to recommend the same video, but you beat me to it. I think it's safe to say that performance wise UP is right in between climashield and down making it a good compromise. Finished weight of an UP quilt is similar to climashield but compresses much better, and the cost difference is minimal.

    Just watched the video, thanks for the link. Not bad for compression. I think I am using this for my quilts I am planning to make.

    I actually think UP may be a little warmer than APEX for the same weight - not really based on personal testing, but on Cedar Ridge’s videos (and comfort rating builds).
