    I think you will be pleasantly surprised...for $28 this has turned into a great piece of gear.

    You might also want to look at the Lorax TQ design before you get started.

    Remember...pics or it didn't happen!

    I haven't been able to determine the fill on the jacket, but I might make an UQ and a TQ for at least lightweight summer fun.. who knows, now the wait is on...

    edit: for those wondering;
    they are $32 each.
    650 goosedown fill
    I can return them if they blow
    You bought those online but a local store would have them in stock and selling the largest of the jackets for $14, some were marked $20 of my 3 one was $20 so the lady at checkout made the one of the 3 $14 like the others. I hope that wasn't too confusing lol.

    I'd like to see that.
