I recently made an underquilt--my first. It's nearly 6 feet long, and a bit narrow--only about 35". Now I'm dealing with suspension issues and enjoying tweaking this and that.
I stuffed it with salvaged down from a garage sale sleeping bag. I'm quite pleased with my first effort--but have questions about down, loft, stuffing, etc.
My baffled "tubes" are about 6" wide each, and I stuffed them from the end. I'm worried that I over-stuffed them, though. What are the guidelines for stuffing with down for maximizing its loft and insulative qualities? It has a slightly "tight" feel--like an inflated thermarest. Seems like that'd be my down compressing under it's own stuffed-ness.
Just wondering what the guidelines are for down. FAQ material, I know.
