    I think upgrading products is great .... just curious how the math works in this case.

    Assuming the shell, baffles etc are the same and you change from 900 to 950 ... that amounts to ~5% difference in the volume of the down ... so how did you get to 10% for the quilt? It would seem that with a 5% down volume reduction the overall change in volume would likely be in the range of 2 - 4% for the quilt.

    Hey Brian, if you take a look at our fill weights for 900fp and 950fp there is approximately a 10% difference between the two. This means that there will be approximately a 10% difference in volume as well. I've linked our product fill weights below for your reference.

    LOL! One night in our underquilt, and she may be begging for her own! Good luck with that covert operation you're running over there

    My 900FP premium 20 degree Incubator arrived today. blissful. Itís 55 degrees out, my back and feet are exceptionally warm with no top insulation. Unfortunately, I now need a phoenix to match! excellent work, Hammock Gear.

    Woohoo, another happy customer! There's nothing like the snuggly warm feel of an underquilt! Thank you very much for your support
