    Ohh - thanks for posting this! I'll be passing it along to some friends.
    I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."

    That's amazing! I never once thought of buying something like this for the down....it costs less than buying 19 oz of down fill all by itself! Bravo and thanks for sharing this deal!

    I learned this the hard way when an old couture pillow came up for recycling in my home....I opened it and found almost 100% duck feathers bought froma large department store - little or no down - a 100% down pillow offers little or no support - in fact makes a very poor pillow, particularly for side sleepers... The best pillow for hammock's IMO is a c shaped airplane air pillow.... very versatile and a heck of a lot cheaper. Down is best for trapping heat - bag, underquilt, top sheet. When compressed- USELESS.

    My point is not to ruin your thread - but it was a hard lesson for me....

    Well wise old owl, I totally agree with you. I was meaning for people to use this as an option for their quilts, not for pillows. I apologize if I wasn't clear enough with my posting. However, after seeing the picture you have with your post, I'm not sure anyone will want 600 fill. I am stealing that picture BTW for future reference...

    Check this deal out!

    I have made now a UQ & TQ and have been very pleased with these pillows. I have purchased 2 and have very good consistancy in quality of down and weight accuracy. Pillow says 800FP and I would estimate between 800 & 700. For $50 dollars delivered this is a deal.
