My first half bag

Postby JohnClimber » Sun Feb 11, 2018 12:30 am

Because I don't get on with sleeping bags and have converted over to quilts.
Today to shed a bit of wait and have another option for the hammock I cut my old cumulus 350 minus 6 sleeping bag down to make it a half bag to use with a down jacket come the spring.
Quite chuffed to feel it's thickness over my 250 Cumulus quilt but weighed in a lot less.
I took out the zip fitted the hoods elastic cord at waist height and it came in at just 377grams in a tiny stuff sack.
Don’t expect a great night of sleep while camping — expect a series of naps.

Good work John - down's not the easiest stuff to work with.
Always be yourself unless you can be a pirate. In that case, always be a pirate

It's not the tidiest of stitching but it's holding together well.
It's amazing even after a good tidy up where those bloody down feathers get to.
