    UK Hammocks Sleeping Bag To Top Quilt Conversion.

    Just wanted to let everyone know that Mat at UK Hammocks is doing sleeping bag to quilt conversions and sleeping bag to under quilt conversions as well. This is a great, inexpensive way to feather your nest on the cheap. I had him do a top quilt conversion on my old LuxuryLite V-Bag, along with adding down to it to get it to a true 20 degree temp. rating. Turned out great and Mat went the extra mile by making a detached hood (think a JRB hood) out of the sleeping bag's hood for me. He also made me a 4 season winter under quilt out of a very old Gerry mountaineering bag from the 80's. I can't recommend Mat or his work enough.

    You would have had to ship it to the UK to have the work done, so what did it cost total?

    I own I good number of sleeping bags and would love to do this to a few.

    All added up, much cheaper than getting a new under quilt and top quilt Call or write Mat at UK Hammocks for an actual quote. He's a great guy and a straight shooter.

    We charge £50 for the actual conversion and would charge cost for FedEx return shipping (£20-30)
    However you can send them to us however you wish I would just recommend you insure/track the shipment...

    Feel free to drop me a mail to discuss further.
