    I bet you could get 20 people to spring for a pound each if you post at WB and backpackinglight.com. But then you'd have to measure and ship it all...may not be worth the 20% discount!

    all that weighing and shipping would be a lot of trouble. They would have to be willing to trust my scales! Doubt it would be worth the trouble.

    Down arrived today!

    I rec. the order from Feather ind today.
    It came in a 20x20x20 box.

    Inside the box was a bag with a total weight of 38.95 oz

    The bag is pretty thin a light, should be at least 2 lbs of down.
    Here is a closeup of the down.

    These clusters appear larger than the 900 stuff I got last month.

    Nice macro photo of the down. I have never seen it outside a sleeping bag.

    Here is the first project from the 2lb box of down.

    48"x84"x3.25"
    weighs 27.65oz
    Very warm
    Should have enough left for a 2" and a 1" quilt. Should be all I need for all seasons here in AR.
