    Who is selling Down by the oz these days?

    I thought I recalled Hammock Gear selling down by the oz but, for the life of me, I can't find it on their website.

    Anyone know of any other place to buy about 4 oz of 700, 800, or 900 FP down?

    Thanks,
    Sean

    Hammockgear's site says they won't have any until the new year. I've purchased from Wilderness logics too and they're both great sources.

    +1 on Marty at Wilderness Logics. He was great to deal with. I think Tree to Trail has some as well.

    Hammockgear.com site does not list any DIY supplies (in it's current form)
    I know it used to be there because I bought some from them.

    There may be another address for this?? I don't know.

    Well, thru-hiker.com has 900FP goose down. It is only available in 3 oz. bags. I think I'd rather have the 800+ FP down from Wilderness Logics. I will not list their prices here, but the thru-hiker down is quite pricey.

    Thru-Hiker down is more pricey but it is 900-fill as opposed to Wilderness Logistic's 800-fill down. On a large project that could both decrease weight and increase compressability. To many people out there, every gram counts... there's a reason people cut up toothbrushes, etc. People are also willing to pay a $10 premium for 7D fabrics that save only a fraction of an ounce over cheaper 10D fabrics. It really depends on each person's personal gear philosophy.
