What would you do with 2.5# of 900+ loft down.
I have a snowlion -40 expedition bag from the 70s.
10" loft, 6 top 4 bottom V baffles, double YKK zippers the whole works.
I bought it new.
It has deflated to 8" in the legs but the body area is still 10" and
from the early 80's on I never really used it.
Reason it has to be 900+ down is the shell is old school 1.9 oz ripstop, has snaps for the neck collar and the old style YKK zippers so the shell is pretty heavy by todays standards and this was a top of the line bag in the late 70's and cost $500 back then. Weighs 4# even without the collar.
At any rate I was thinking about maybe salvaging the down and build maybe some pertex or momentum shelled stuff. Epic would be nice, but from what I understand not available to the public.
Now the caveat is I have worked with down several times and hate it.
So much so I just cant bring myself to chop it up
I would much rather work with Climashield and I already have a golite ultra 20.
So I could...
1 sell it
2 sell the down
3 chop it up and suffer through construction of whatever, GAK
4 move to Alaska where I can actually get some use out of it.
I am leaning towards #4
