    Two LowCost UQ options (Even for Cold Weather)

    So here are a couple of ideas for DIY UQ's at a low price ( very low) cuz I am always broke

    This option uses a rectangle bag and requires no sewing, had it down to about 28 deg. F.

    This option does require sewing and cost for materials is a little higher but still under 100$ but has got me down 18 deg. F. and I know it can go colder. It uses an old down puffer jacket (ya know the one Grandma used to wear)

    Very inventive of you. I really like your first uq as it's construction was outrageously simple and the pulley system was very clever. Well done!
