    Maybe, thats why i told viper to pm dave, he will know. I really dont see it differing too much though, why would it?

So if I post a pic of how I had them make it would someone be able to tell me how many oz of 850fp down I would need to get my 0deg temp I'm wanting? Thanks guys

    Hey Viper - 15 oz (that's 20% overfill) will get you to 0* no problem.
    I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."

    The ARGON from Dutch will save you about 1.5 oz total.

    Yeah, I haven't really posted any weight savings as the variation in fabrics is too much. For any of the "high tech" materials like m50 and ARGON, you'll save 1.5 to 2 oz. depending on uq size and season.
