    Snow Beast UQ

    Finished a new DIY under quilt just in time for a New Years hang in the yard, labeling this one the "Snow Beast". The baffles (9) are filled with 16oz of 950+ FP Goose Down and the total loft is 5.5"

    That's one hell of a quilt Otter. That should keep you toasty warm, even if we get arctic air.

    I think [o]TTeR would be good down to -40C with the Snow Beast, being the self described extreme hot sleeper.

    Great job on the underquilt. Is there a matching top quilt in the works?

    Cheers

    Thanks, after taking the shots on the indoor stand, I had to test it out, it started radiating heat instantly. We’re still waiting on winter here, right now its above freezing and rain, testing the sauna may have to wait?
