Postby burleyolebear » Sat Feb 09, 2013 10:23 pm

I found a down sleeping bag today at a nearby second hand store. It was $5!!!

I'm going to use it as an underquilt, with very little necessary conversion...

One in ten million. Terrific find to say the least. Keep going back every day to see if any more come in. :mrgreen: I bet you had an adrenalin rush when you found it :o

My wife ended up with a bag that looked very similar, for $1. Too bad it was a child sized bag.

I have never found a good deal on a down bag. Plenty of squished synthetics :roll:
