    That's a beauty, it should work well, 53 days or so, and it will get a real test I hope

    How did you open up the pod to add the down? One end I assume, but seam ripper, or ?
    Was it hard to contain the down inside as you added more?

    First we pushed all the down to the bottom half and then open with a seam ripper.
