    Talking DIY insultex underquilt

    Here's my second attempt at sewing. Er, Gear making. My first was a gathered end hammock that basically taught me how to use my mom's thread injector. This one was a little more complex. 3 layers of insultex. With the channel I was dealing with 7 layers at one time

    40 by 60 on the small side (1.1 ripstop)

    45 by 60 on the large side ( differential cut) I cut each layer of insultex 1 inch wider than the first and then my larger layer of ripstop at 45 to allow the insultex to hang correctly.

    I put channels on each side with supplemental webbing loops in case I need to tweak the suspension a little bit.

    Here's my favorite part : 16.2 ounces. That is the quilt only so total it should be right around 17 ounces.

    I am hoping for a 30 some night this weekend so I can test it out!!!


    I reserve the right to photograph only the parts that make this look like a quality product thus insinuating that the said parts reflect the entirety of my project.


    input/critiques welcome!
