Out of the recent quilts I've sent out here are a few pics of an interesting one which is filled with 950 fill power HyperDRY goose down! It weighs in at 590g for a -8C quilt with zip and drawcord footbox (as opposed to around 625g for the same quilt with the 850 fill down) and I must say that the 950 fill does loft up very nicely. More weight could be saved by going with the 10 denier fabric for the shell as well as the lining. The fabrics are Illume 15 in Macaw Green for the shell and Black Membrane 10 for the liner.

Hey - that's my new quilt! Just arrived in the post today - 590gms of fluffy goodness - can't wait to try it out.
Even my wife was impressed with the quality of the build, the amazing loft and the weight or lack of!
This is the latest addition to my new UltraLight makeover - almost done now.

Thanks so much Mike - an awesome quilt.

That's great Stew! Lightening the load certainly makes for a more enjoyable experience! If you take any photos of your quilt in the field I'd love to see them.

It would be nice if you would stop posting seductive pics of that Macaw Green, Mike. :(

It was not available when I purchased my quilt, and I really do not need two. :lol:

Hi scrubturkey, I've sent you a message.

David, I haven't received a private message or email from you at this stage (I'm not sure there is a facility to send an email through the forum?). I'll send you a PM now and then you should be able to re-send you original message in reply.

Nice looking quilts and great to see them being made locally.

Hi Mike,
Wondered if you could maybe update the first page of this thread with current options and prices - like the zip footbox, loftier down options, current colours etc. It'd be easier than searching through the thread. Of course, you might already have something like that and I've missed it.
Cheers

I wish I could edit the first post with the updated information but I think this forum only allows editing posts for a limited time after posting. I really should just start a new thread with the latest info as this one is now rather long for people to sift through to find all of the details. I had planned on making a new thread once I have other sizes available but that has taken much longer than anticipated and now won't happen till a bit into the new year (although progress has been made on that front).

My beautiful purple and black -8 quilt is a year old on Christmas day. It has seen quite a bit of use in that time including icy nights down to about -8 in Tassie in September.

Never having had (or even seen) a quilt before, I took a punt and negotiated one as a Christmas present. I won't be going back to a bag in a hurry.

The sewing quality is excellent. The design (mine is the sewn in box foot) is great and the loft and warmth are just lovely.

I can't recommend these highly enough.

Thanks for the very kind words Jim! I'm glad you're enjoying it and getting some good use out of it.

Hi Mike!

I was lucky enough to have been given some $$$ for some new gear as a chrissie present...

Any chance you could send me a PM with some options? These quilts look great.

Cheers mate,
Sam.

There are some other options Mike has developed since then, so it's worth following the whole thread through.

If the message is still in your outbox it means Mike hasn't read it. Once he has it will appear in your sent box. Mike hasn't logged on since last Wednesday.

Hi all, as Whitefang mentioned I've been away on holidays. A fantastic walking and climbing trip in Tassie actually. I won't be home for a couple more days but will be able to reply to PMs now and I've responded to everyone who sent me a message while I was out of contact.

Cheers,
Michael

And, if poor Underclingmike has to spend too much time responding to emails, he wont have time to sew!

He's got a great product. He needs a website, which I hear he's on to. The other major issue is that people need to be converted from sleeping bags to quilts - a no brainer for me.

I just wish I was young enough to to be starting a business like this. ( but I accept that my current day job is pretty good!).
