    SOLD: Down DIY TQ

    I wanted to try making a down TQ out of duck down to see the difference between 550 and 650. I didn't find any difference in warmth, the only down side is compressions and weight. it has a few more ounces to get the warmth which directly affects size/weight.

    I'm 6'3 and when in it the top edge is right above my forehead.

    78x49x2" (loft is about 3.5")
    13 baffles
    20oz of 550fp down
    1.1 DWR camo, so it's about 1.3-1.4oz/yd
    bottom us 1.1 uncoated calendared
    0.5" gross grain trim
    1 cord lock with 3/32" line
    3 buttons at footbox
    no-see-um baffles

    total weight in a lined stuff sack is 2.05lbs. i understand this could be a lot for some but it's not bad for a 3 season TQ. the stuff sack i used was 3 oz and I think with straps it could compress another 2-3" or so.

    i've used it three times. the coldest i've taken it was about 38F. i had a REI heavy weight base layer on and wool socks. at that temp i wasn't toasty but wasn't waking up due to the cold. i spent one night in shorts and t-shirt at 51F and was more than comfortable.

    i'm only selling it because i've been band from starting a new project until i get ride of a few things.

    $140 to paypal bloomgorge@gmail.com

    please claim it here and then PM me.

    shipping include anywhere within the 48. if you're out of the 48 PM me and we'll work something out.

    if you want any additional photo's please let me know.

    Hadn't thought of it like that, just feeling some sympathy for our poor down trodden brethren jk jk

    If I had some $$ in my paypal account I'd buy the TQ
