    Just started ripping mine for my underquilt, wish me luck LOL. I am through 1 jacket and about halfway through the 2nd. I will finish taking apart tonight, and touch up my few little oopsies so I don;t lose any down. Thread injection will commence tomorrow!

    Just finished up the sewing on all the main parts. Will be doing some touchup to the seams and trying to round the corners a bit and fixing my edges, then it will be time for ribbon and suspension!

    Got out for a quick Hike and Hang

    (Urban Stealth Style) to test my Puffer Jacket Top quilt and Honey Badger inspired JCP Puffer Underquilt

    N41 36.3689',W87 44.0993' hang location


    Temp 26* (Low)
    Temp 30* (High)

    Winds 5-10mph

    No Cold Spots and nice and Comfy

    I was wearing pants , socks, T-shirt and Fleece Sweatshirt


    I think with more layers and a beanie and booties I could go about another 5-10* lower

    I am very impressed with my diY UQ and TQ

    Thanks again Honey Badger

    Finished up mine this weekend. I used Honey Badger's basic design except I used some arm pieces at the corners to make it more rectangular.



    I also sewed a layer of $1 Walmart nylon (woohoo finally found some) to the inner part. Couple of reasons/hopes for this:
    1) It covers up all the seams from stitching together the various panels.
    2) It is sized to be just a bit smaller than the UQ in hopes that it will provide a bit of a differential and allow me to snug everything tight against the hammock without crushing the down. (We'll see on this one - if I provided too much differential I may just end up with a gap I can't eliminate )
    3) Provides a space to slide in extra insulation. I'm hoping Scott over at DIY Gear supply gets in some more IX so I can add a layer that I can slide in and velcro in place.



    Weight is ~22oz in it's stuff sack but without end suspension.

    the_lorax, that is a nice looking quilt there! I like the use of the sleeves on the corners.

    Great job! MightyMouse had similar results testing the UQ I made for her. Amazing what you can make with these jackets and a little hard work.

    @ the_lorax: very nice looking quilt! I especially like the idea for being able to add more insulation. You could even stick a sit-pad or something like it in there. I'm not sure adding fabric to create a differential will work to prevent all compression, though, without adding an air gap. Let us know how it works!

    Yeah, I'm not sure if the differential will work either. If it doesn't I can always remove the extra layer or just hang it upside down (camo out).
