    Best Place To Buy Down

    Im sure this topic is not new but here I go. I want to buy some down for diy projects. Has there been any group buys of down from the forum? Where is the most cost effective place to buy it? I have 2 nice down pillows from Costco and was thinking of using that. Thanks for the advise in advance.

    Do you car camp or hike?
    If only for car camping, then weight isn't a factor. You can use your existing pillows and save $$$. Unless of course this is your wife's favorite pillow

    If you backpack, go with the link above and get that lightweight heavenly fluff and you won't regret it!

    Great suggestion if you're not looking for light weight.

    Great Tip

    I have watched that video and forgot about the links. Fronkey you did a excellent job on that video. The wife already thinks I have flipped a cog, good thing I didn't just start cutting and then think to ask someone on the forum for the correct way to do the job!
