    Quilted Ripstop???

    Has anyone tried this stuff??

    Was thinking of trying it double layered and stuff with down to make my own UQ.
    When the wife asks, I simply say "Shug made me do it".

    It's basically the same thing as a poncho liner except they charge a lot more for it. Search HF for PLUQ or poncho liner.

    You would still need to add baffles to keep the down in place, but by using this material, you would lose the lightweight and compress-ability advantages of down.

    Oh good point about the poncho liner. Sewing in baffles i do not believe would be to difficult but compared to a poncho liner, this is way over priced.
