i wanted to try and make a TQ out of duck to see how it did and it was a favor to a friend to evaluate the difference between 550 and 650. some of the specs
78x49x2" baffles (loft is about 3.5")
20oz of down - (feathertex)
1.1 DWR camo from (BWDD) so it's about 1.3-1.4oz/yd
bottom us 1.1 uncoated (wally world)
0.5" gross grain trim (BWDD)
1 cord lock with 3/32" line (BWDD)
3 buttons (joann's)
total weight in a lined stuff sack is 2.05lbs. i understand this could be a lot for some but it's not bad for a 3 season TQ. the stuff sack i used was 3 oz and I think with straps it could compress another 2-3" or so. i plan on make something much lighter out of 800 or 900 fp but the materials where here so i had it and i just enjoy making gear so i thought i'd see how it would turn out.
i've got a trip (overnight) that i'm going to evaluate the warmth, comfort and packability.
