    Wildernesslogics has 850+. You may be able to find lower fill power at a better price but I like the good stuff!

    From my wanderings around the web, Wilderness Logics is about the cheapest you'll get. They sell by the ounce and will bag it up in half ounce and ounce baggies. All for $7 an ounce.

    Most other venders are running about $10 an ounce, in 3oz increments, and $13 an ounce if you want it packaged by the ounce.

    Down feathers

    I looked there and that's where I was originally going to go with. the price went up to $7.00 an oz. I still think I am going to go with them but I think I will buy in bulk for $100 because it will be cheaper and I will have extra.

    If you have never handled down before try a couple of individual bags first. Measuring down can be quite messy.
    YMMV

    I just placed an order with W/L. Great price comparatively, he'll package in 0.5 or 1 oz bags for free (and if you plan your baffles right this it perfect), and ships for free over $100. I bought down for an UQ and TQ.

    So buying the down in bulk wont put it in the individual bags?
