so i had two questions... When is it preferable to using down to say climashield apex? If i made a 600 fp down UQ would it be similarly warm/compressable to climashield? 700? I realize 800-850 is the best warmth/weight ratio but for those of us on a budget is lower quality down worth it or am i better going synthetic?
2nd question are group buys of down reasonable? Do you get a good cost savings for ordering a ton of it? I realize the packaging of the down is likely a hassle but i wasnt sure if it was just not that big a savings to order in bulk and thats why i didnt see too many group buys of it.
