    PLUQ questions

    I have the materials on the way for a no sew PLUQ. I just saw the instructions for the sew up version on another thread and how you could add extra insulation between the layers. I was wondering, with the no sew version, could you essentially do the same thing by just slipping some insultex in between on colder trips. It would be great to have a little more versatility out of one UQ instead buying another underquilt.

    Was thinking of buying enough insultex to double over in the UQ, but have read that there should be a slight gap in between layers. Would it still work or would i be wasting money?

    comments, concerns, and experience on this would be great

    Short and easy answer is yes. What u have found is the downside to a sewn version. I still love mine though...
