    Karo Step Underquilt Video

    Just got back from a 5 nighter in the mountains here in Australia and with winter fast coming I wanted something with a little more warmth. Though I should try a Karo Step Underquilt with a bit of beef to it.

    Made this video to go along with it.

    I hope you all enjoy.

    Excellent work. I think this is only the second karo step underquilt I've seen. Looks like it works very well. Thanks for posting.

    A very nice looking quilt. It looks like it fits the hammock well and should keep you toasty. Thanks for the video.

    I'm still confused about how those baffles work. I'll have to go back to the source video on how to make them. Your quilt looks great and very warm! Thank you for the video.
