16799Re: [Hammock Camping] very light weight material
- Feb 2, 2007Rick,
I made a summer quilt a coupla years ago with 0.8oz downproof baffelled
with down. I can't remember how much down but 8-10oz sounds about right b/c
I made it rather large. I believe it's somewhere in the neighborhood of
52X80" It it still in great shape with proper care.
Anyway, I believe it weighs 15oz. and is perfect for 1/2 the year here in
I bought the 0.8 from Ayce but it looks like he doesn't have it anymore.
It's a bit pricey but it looks like he now has this:
