5455TNF Nuptse dowm blanket
- Apr 18, 2004I bought one of these blankets on Ebay (like a few others here), but I
haven't taken it out yet. I'm going hiking this weekend, but I haven't
decided if I'm going to take it (I may take my synthetic blanket if I
finish it in time).
I don't yet have a scale. Has anyone weighed their blanket yet? With
18 oz of fill it seems like it should weigh about 24-28 oz.
I'm going to be testing a bunch of new gear I've made this winter:
Double bottom hammock, TravelPod, and Tarp.
The TravelPod is quite a contraption! I mostly used Risk's plans, but
I added a strap that goes from the ends up to the bugnet D-ring (The
hammock mostly follows the plan from Ed's book) to keep it from
creeping in toward the middle. I made the strap using 1" webbing,
which is complete overkill, but it was all I had laying around with
the necessary hardware.
I'll take pictures later after I test it to see how it works. It seems
like there's too much baggyness at the bottom, but I can't tell on my
low-rider hammock stand here at home. It seems like I have 4-6 inches
of sag in the travelpod.
