    Primaloft is available from Quest and thru-hiker. Both very good places in my experience.

    For a quilt, I would consider Climashield. I have made one from 5osy XP from thru-hiker and it is really nice and warm. I know temperature ratings are subjective and everything, but the 20F rating for the XP is definitely in the right ballpark for me. A bit aggressive, but not overly so.

    Primaloft has to be stabilized more than the Climashield from what I understand. IIRC, Ayce from thru-hiker prefers Primaloft for clothing because it drapes better and isn't so stiff, but Climashield for large items like quilts because it needs less quilting. Give him a call, he's great to talk to.
