Question about UQ
I am from the UK and thinking of making myself a under quilt. The only problem is that I can get a supply of Down. Could i use an old synthetic filled sleeping bag as a under quilt. The lowest temp I will need it for will be about -5oc. So if this could be done will I use a bag that is rated for -5oc or lower
Sorry i have put this in wrong thread section it should be in UQ
You sure can. Here is a thread showing one of the many ways to do it. Have fun!
That's alright. I got your back.

Any chance in finding an old down bag at a garage sale or want ads?
