    I think my next step, instead of washing it, is to get some new tennis balls and run it in the dryer with those and a ton of dryer sheets.
    Very true. My other two HG UQs don't smell at all.

    I wonder if Hammock Gear can chime in and let us know if a new batch of down was recently used?

    The real question is "Which smells worse"?
    1. Herd of geese taking a bath in a sauna?
    2. Herd of Thru Hikers hiking into Hot Springs?

    Just saying...

    Thought I'd just add that my HG new top quilt arrived without any real smell to it even if I bury my face in it. Smells like the under quilt does after it'd aired for a while. Both are now living in cotton pillow cases so I don't foresee any smells returning.

    FWIW, I ordered a several HG quilts a few weeks ago, and they do have a smell to them, while my older HG quilts do not (and never did). Have considered washing them, but have taken a "wait and see" approach so far.

    Hmmm - wonder if I just have a dead nose!

    My quilts are probably aired out enough that I don't have to worry about it.
