2337Insulator Bag (part deux)
- Aug 7, 2003As you may know, the insulation for the first generation Garlington
Insulator was a bag of air. This progressed to a bag of air with a
folded space blanket. I've decided to try a "bag of feathers" as the
I'm thinking a 2'x4' nylon bag filled with 6 ounces of 800 fill power
down can be made for about $60 and should insulate down to 0F. The
weight of the bag of feathers should be about 8-10 ounces.
(I'll hint at my first, hesitant steps in constructing such a bag:
Last night I attempted to cut up an old, down, GI mummy bag....
It is amazing how down lofts to fill the space available. I'm glad my
wife wasn't home at the time.)
