    underquilt question from st cloud MN

    After looking at all the DIY for under-quilts I am trying to decide on taking an old sleeping bag and making it into a under-quilt or just trying to find a cheap under-quilt online? anyone know of some websites that sell under-quilts for fairly cheap (around 150ish). Or would it just be easier to work on the sleeping bag that I already have?

    DIY works, but there's nothing cheap about underquilts. I've got a synthetic KAQ New River from Arrowhead Equipment that I've very happy with and it's in that pricepoint. Or, keep an eye out in the for sale section in the forum for a gently used item.

    Also take a look at te-wa underquilts. I've recently placed an order for some custom "Breeze" underquilts (summer) and the price is very reasonable. $135, and you can overstuff (which i did) with 1oz of down for an extra $10. I can't wait to get them! I've heard nothing but great reviews on Mikes work.
