    Both thru-hiker.com and tttrailgear.com sell 900 FP. It apperas tttrailgear is out of stock right now.

    There are numerous other places that sell down, those were just the first two that came to mind.

    Buy a used down sleeping bag and use the down from it. (Maybe, wash it first and then cut it open and use the down.) I've seen some used 0* degree 700fp goose down sleeping bags (REI, TNF, Cabelas) on Craigslist for $80 to $100. Probably around 2.5 lbs. fill weight for that degree bag. That's like $40 a lb. Just a thought...

    Some have purchased pillows. Some of those, however, were a waste as the good down eveloped an inner-pillow that was mostly feathers.

    the My Luxe pillows are reported to be 100% high quality down.
