    Downlite?

    Has anyone ever purchased from Downlite.com? I was wondering about their quality specifically the WGD 800 fill 1 pound for 100.00. I have 2 projects coming up and think it may be cheaper to go that route.

    I have never run across them before. After looking at the site it seems legit though. It looks as if 800 FP is going to run you 16 per oz. Ed Speer has down for sale at http://stores.tttrailgear.com/-strse...0fp/Detail.bok for about 11 per oz of 900 FP. He appears to be out of stock right now, but if your looking for the best bang for your buck I would wait until Speer Hammocks has more in stock. Another bonus IMHO is that it comes in 3oz packages, which I would imagine would be much easier to work with than a 1lb bag. If you go with downlite, let us know how it goes.

    $100/16oz = $6.25 per oz.

    $35/3.1oz = $11.29 per oz.

    Or am I wrong?

    Wilderness Logic has theirs for $6.50 per ounce. Too bad I didn't see this yesterday as it was on sale for $5.80.
