    Argon67 vs Argon90 for down UQ

    Has anyone had any experience with Argon67 and how it compares to the Argon 90?

    Seems to me to be almost so lightweight i dont trust it not to tear if im not super delicate with it.

    I have a Hammock Gear Burrow top quilt that has Argon 67 on the inside and Argon 90 on the outside. Both my HG under quilts have Argon 67 for both the outer and inner shells. I have no concerns thus far on durability with the 67 fabric. I might be concerned if my top quilt had snaps on the foot box but I got a sewn foot box so no worries. The Argon is fantastic stuff.

    I think the ARGON 67 is now ARGON 69 because now it's ripstop. I made an UQ out of it and I think it's plenty tough. I used strips of ARGON 90 for the end channels but I don't think that's necessary. You don't have to be supper careful, just don't be reckless. I haven't even been using a stuff sack, just craming it into the bottom of my pack.
