17551Re: [Hammock Camping] Quilt modifcations
- Jun 4, 2007One idea to stuff the quilt/bag is to use a small pup type tent and go
inside to stuff the bag with down All the feathers will be contained or at
least most of them. Then you can vacum most of the rest up much eaiser and
stuff the vacuumed ones into the quilt..
Ps I;m adding somthing like this to my down sleepig bag that the zipper
won;'t stay closed adn I sleep restless so loos the sleeping pad all over
