    CLOSED: Another Roll of Insultex

    Folks,

    I will order another roll of Insultex during January. Having reviewed what it cost me to cut, package and distribute the previous roll, I will offer it at $5 per yard. A couple of people have already told me what they want to buy, so I thought I would begin taking orders. There are about 175 yards available in this roll. You should expect delivery by the end of January.

    Let's do it the same way as before. Feel free to post here, but the formal order will be placed when I receive a PayPal message with payment and shipping address. My PayPal address is "MacEntyre (at) Yahoo (dot) com"

    Please pay only the $5 X your yardage. I will ask for a second payment when I know the actual insured shipping costs.

    This time, I am going to package them a little tighter, to avoid the USPS "ballon" charges!

    After checking the account, make it 15 instead of 10.


    Have you used this as an UQ yet?

    Yes, but not by itself. Thing1 and Thing2 used UQs made from IX and Wiggy's Window Insulation at 21*F.

    DuctTape has an IX insert that I made to fit his UQ. I don't think he has reported on it's performance yet.

    I have a DIY hammock with IX-only UQ and TQ in the works. I plan to make the UQ and TQ in layers, so it will be convertible for the season.

    Good show... I look forward to the gear report.

    Right now, I'm working on a bulk buy of white goose down. The supplier I've found can get me 100% down for as little as $X / ounce (replace "X" with really good price, but not a done deal yet!), but I'm still waiting to get the specs on its "fill power". They said its guaranteed "at least 650+, but usually closer to 750".

    I was thinking of a down UQ & TQ, with a secondary quilt for colder temps made of 2 layers of Insultex (or more, depending on YOUR reports. )

    I am SO EXCITED to start this project!!

    In response to a query, there are about 120 yards of IX left on this roll.
