    I just finished my IX UQ today. It was a fun project. Thank you so much for the write up. I can't wait to try it out.

    Does anyone have any sources for the Insultex other than those listed at the beginning of this thread? DIY Gear Supply is out and the other source doesn't show it on their website.

    I've done the Google search and come up blank.

    I don't know any sources but you could contact DIY Gear Supply and ask him when he's getting some more.

    He will probably also tell you where you can buy some right now. It is the friendliness and help like that that keeps me going back and ordering from him.

    It's on order and should be back in stock this next week. The only other place I am aware of that sells IX is Tree to Tree Trail Gear. I didn't see it on their site either, might want to toss them a note to see if it will still be retailed.

    Just finished my IX Underquilt today using rjcress's excellent instructions at his gear review site. Ordered all the materials from DIY Gear Supply and although it took 3 days of off and on work and fiddling around trying to decide exactly what I wanted (or needed), I'm quite pleased with it. Tonight is going to dip into the 30's, so I will be out getting the hang of using an underquilt for the first time. I'm moving up from pads and big sleeping bags.
    I had an old 40 degree Wiggy's sleeping bag that finally wore out after 15 years, so I took it apart to reuse the Lamilite insulation in the draft tubes I put in the underquilt. They're 3 inch tubes all the way around. Snugs up real nice with no gaps that I can see or feel. I used pleats instead of darts (6 inches long) on the insultex and got a good bowl shape. This was my first "big" project - lots of mistakes but a lot learned about thread injection.
    Now the family can have the living room back. For awhile it looked like a fabric store blew up.
    Next project starting tomorrow is a hammock sock! Was told to take it out to the shed this time.

    The replacement stock is due in this week! I'm getting eager to start doing some serious thread injecting.

    I am horrible at sewing and I want to make an IX UQ as cheap and easily as possible. I sleep very cold. With that in mind I was thinking about buying a 2Q2Z Silnylon UQP and then inserting 3 to 4 layers of IX that has been velcro-ed together in such a manner that their would ample air space in between each sheet. Has anyone tried this? I am a new hanger and a new DIY. I figured this would make it more adjustable between seasons and easier to experiment with. Any advice? Your quilts look great guys!
