    My 2.5 season UQ is 40x46 with 1.5 inch baffles and 4oz of 800+ fill down
    it has 2+ of loft and i would rate it a 35 degree UQ 11.5oz

    also made one that was 42x56 sewn through with diff. cut ... had 2+ inch of loft and used 6oz of 800+ fill down good down to 40 degrees...14.3oz

    40x48 with 2 inch baffles with diff cut and used 6oz of down ...that one had 3 inch of lost and was good down to 30 degrees ....i think 15oz

    I made a down UQ (51"x39") that weights 10.6 oz with the suspension. It recently took me down to 38 degres at the Texas hang and it was warm & comfy!
